Jeff VanderMeer is one of the hottest writers in the science fiction and fantasy genre. MG Lord is a humorist and recovering political cartoonist who has written books about Elizabeth Taylor and Barbie. Louis Bayard writes historical fiction who specializes in detective novels, but his new book features Teddy Roosevelt stalking a mysterious beast through the Amazon. That's the river and jungle, not the book dealer.

They and others try their hands at The Nose as we're back in New Haven at the Yale Writers' Conference, where the panelists and I are all teaching, and they're bracing themselves for a cultural conversation that may include anything from #CatsOfJihad to the official cancelation of the Red Skins trademark.
