Turkmenistan has no private or foreign media, and the internet is inaccessible for most people. (via BBC)
Yet now the country has 'The House of Free Creativity,' a baffling book-shaped building "devoted to press freedom." Hmm...
Spookier things have happened.
Speaking of spooky, The Chicago Tribune is offering a story-shaped Halloween treat called A Secret Life, With Cats: A Ghost Story by Audrey Niffenegger. You can either read the story in seven short chapters or listen to the author read the chapters. In order to access either format, you will need to be registered with the Tribune. (Psst: Registration is free.)
