So apparently I forgot this in October, due to too much other stuff going on on Stack Exchange.

Here's the latest installment in what's now becoming a grand old tradition of gathering some particularly good Literature Q&A in order to get some easily available links to show off to people.

Since Literature has a community-run Twitter account, one use for this post will be to gather links for tweeting. But it's also useful for any kind of site promotion - if we want to show off the site to literary friends, it'll be much easier if we have a list of particularly great posts to point to.

Please nominate some exemplary Q&A from the third quarter (Jul/Aug/Sep) of 2019.

(I know it's late for this, but better late than never, right? Maybe someone still remembers some great stuff from those months, or will find something on taking a look through the content from then.)

  • When choosing nominations, please remember the primary purpose: to showcase our site to people elsewhere in the hope of maybe tempting them to come here. Let's try to focus mainly on great questions with great answers, and perhaps also great unanswered questions (which we can advertise as "hey, why not come and answer this") - not anything with subpar answers, which will tend to give a bad impression and defeat the purpose.
  • Remember that votes don't necessarily reflect quality, and the purpose of this is to promote quality over score. Highly-voted posts are easy to find, underappreciated gems less so.
  • Getting a wide range of different stories represented in our list here would also be nice, but not strictly necessary - feel free to nominate a bunch of Q&A about the same book, if you think they're all outstanding. But don't nominate questions just because they're about your favourite book.
  • Multiple nominated posts per answer here is fine.
  • Feel free to nominate either some of your own posts which you're particularly proud of, or posts from other people which really impressed you.
  • Ideally, some explanation of why the nominated questions and answers are so good would be useful - constructive feedback might give people ideas about what to aim for in the future.

I particularly liked Spagirl's komprehensive klarifikation of Krazy Kat's klassikal references, which when fully explained turned out not to be entirely classical after all.

  • Thank you! It was a real journey digging into that one and I enjoyed the trip immensely. I remain frustrated over the 39 dum dimmins and would dearly love to see the actual strip in question. – Spagirl Jan 30 at 22:06
