I'd never heard of Simberg — more fool me, since he fits squarely within the Symbolist/visionary/outsider canon of artists I most admire. So I hope to write about him at some point too (and will use him in a story I'm working on). I'd love to hear from anyone with any information on Simberg, as there's scant info in English on the web and not many books — Judith Clute found a marvelous volume in Jyvaskyla, but unfortunately nearly all the test is in Finnish.
I have to go underground for the next few days to do a piece on Harry Potter, but will resurface soon. In the meantime, it's good to be back home with the rest of the I4!
