Hello out there in the Buddhist blogosphere. This is a quick post to apologize for the absence of posts for the past two months-ish. I have been conducting fieldwork and preparing a university course that I am currently teaching. Now that the fall semester has started and a new routine is in place, I shall get back to blogging.
More importantly, I wanted to thank those of you who have encouraged me in this blogging venture. Some of you have provided wonderful references and background on other works that can be considered Buddhist fiction as well as some scholarly considerations at the intersection of Buddhism and fiction, while others have even provided information to help me make contact with Buddhist communities for my fieldwork. Thank-you! Your efforts, thoughtfulness, and generosity of spirit are so much appreciated.
And with that, I will save my writing energy for my upcoming post on delineating “fiction.”
