Good evening, dear readers! Against all the odds, November has turned out to be a most excellent and most busy month. I have been unfaithful to this blog numerous times, and I feel I should probably do a big links roundup of my recent activities.
So here one is.
First, for Litro Magazine, I've written:
- about the present (and past) of British crime writing,
- about Russell Tovey, the Penny Dreadfuls and how writers are secretly mad scientists,
- and about Pat the Bunny, and why children's apps can be a very good thing.
And for The Bookbag, I've reviewed:
- Stranger Magic by Marina Warner (read this if you are an academic and also a geek).
- Wits and Wives by Kate Chisholm (read this if you are an academic and also a feminist).
- The Kingdom of Bones by Stephen Gallagher (read this if you like Victorian penny dreadfuls and also DEATH).
- The Tale of Raw Head and Bloody Bones by Jack Wolf (read this if you like the eighteenth century, the Gothic and people cutting other people up).
See you in December.
