Rabbit Room Review & Reprise

It’s been a busy week at the Rabbit Room office. We’ve been plotting and scheming and planning some exciting things, which will all be revealed in the fullness of time. While we were muttering in dark corners, though, there’s been plenty of good stuff on the website. Here’s what’s been happening in the clear light of day.

UntitledOn Monday, Andrew Peterson (The Proprietor), asked you (The Readership), “What is the Rabbit Room for?” Your answers have been great and we’re taking all of your suggestions and criticisms into consideration as we plan the year ahead. If you haven’t added your voice to the conversation yet, please do. We’re listening.

DeathSquare Peg Alliance member Jeremy Casella launched a Kickstarter campaign this week to fund his new record, Death in Reverse. It’s been far too long since Jeremy’s last album, RCVRY (which is awesome, and available in the RR store), so we’re really excited about this new project. It’s also inspired by N. T. Wright’s book Surprised by Hope, and that’s a good thing.

Slave-trade-shackles-001Helena Sorensen (whom many of you will have met at Hutchmoot 2013) wrote a great piece for the Story Warren a while back. It’s about her reaction to a reading of C. S. Lewis’s The Silver Chair, and we featured it here in the Rabbit Room this week. It’s called “A Slave in my own Kingdom.” Don’t miss it.

PigeonsOnce again, Jonathan Rogers proves that when it comes to having great stories to tell, there’s no substitute for growing up in rural Georgia. Check out his latest anecdote, “The Sniper,” to see what I mean. The Warner Robins well, it seems, will never run dry.

I’ve been editing it for the last few weeks and let me tell you, this story is going to rock your socks off. Andrew is knocking it out of the ball park. Click on the image to the left to see the cover in all it’s Justin Gerard-illustrated glory.

And finally, check out this new Kickstarter project about Vincent Van Gogh. Nothing I can say will be as cool as this movie looks (though, sadly, I doubt it’ll include an invisible space chicken). Just watch the video. Have a great weekend.
