Safe Fiction

Mark Bertrand uses a bit of Narnian logic to explore whether "safety" in fiction is an ideal end.

A nice snippet: "A good book is not safe because it threatens false assumptions and complacency and the little fantasies we construct to conceal the reality all around us. A good book, like a good God, is a dangerous thing to those who have reason to fear."

This is your required reading for the day.
