Here is our third of three bloggish appreciations of Mark Z Danielewski‘s House of Leaves as a sideways way of celebrating the release of Fifty-Year Sword on Cargo Publishing. See the other blog posts here and here.

Our event with Mark is on Tuesday April 15th (buy your tickets now). This is our biggest event of the year so far and it’s unmissable. Seriously. Get a ticket or two before they all go.
