Thanks, Mike, for this very useful article. This relates a lot to what I
have been trying to do these past few years and it pulls the adult
literature well together. My work has centered more on preschoolers
spontaneous (fantasy) stories and I have tried to find ways to analyze
them, which goes beyond just using structural criteria but also
incorporates content in a serious way (that is, it incorporates content
and structure). I have also argued (as do Mar & Oatley, but for adults)
for the significant of character in children's narratives (whether for
learning to comprehend or tell stories) and I'm continuing to think
about these issues. More recently, I have devoted my attention/effort in
creating an intervention programs using commercially available
children's books to promote narrative comprehension as well as social
understanding, especially for low-income children. As I'm in the midst
of writing about these issues, this article is very useful.

Sorting through all the unread journals and seeking to bring order to the
of my intellectual meanderings, i came across this article that I think
should hold some
interest for xmca-o-philes.
As some of you know, I have an abiding interest in the idea of tertiary
artifacts, works of
art, for Wartofsky (so I learned from Yrjo), play, "alternative worlds"
like the 5th Dimension
that Peg Griffin invented and I have played in for a long time. But I also
teach and think (think and
teach?) about various communication media including novels and sitcoms.
This article caught
my attention in that odd nexus of interests: fiction as "simulations," or,
we might say, tertiary artifacts, or we might say, "tools to think with."
Delete or read along, as the mood catches you.
