Here is this week’s list of short stories, comic strips, poems and other links from my favourite corners of the web.

1994. This is the fourth Lucille Clifton poem I’ve shared with you so far. There are two more of them I want you to read, and I’ll continue posting them every other week on Suggestion Saturday. I hope that I’ve converted a few of my followers into fans of this poet. She’s incredible.
In the House of the Seven Librarians. If libraries are magical places to you, go read this.
A Day in the Life. I’m not sure if there’s an official term for this, but I love it when people modernize old sayings.
