Randomly Shelves or Something

My brilliantly aptly named new series continues. Where I randomly select two books from my shelves and attempt to find a link. I do not promise it will be a good link, only that it will be a link. It might be anything at all. One thing I do promise is that the link will not be […]

Valhalla – Tom Holt

Valhalla – Tom Holt

I’ve a lot of Tom Holt on my shelf, he’s an author I enjoy quite a bit but I didn’t feel the love with this book. It was quite a shock to be halfway through before I found any type of connection, I only persevered as it’s Holt and I kept remembering all the other […]

Publishing, interviewing and what not

By the time you read this I’ll be hard at work being interviewed. What writing secrets they feel they’re going to get from me is beyond my comprehension. I’ve seen some of the questions and one of them has a non-answer while the other has a totally silly answer. You’ll see more when they put it on […]

Rare Unsigned Copy – Simon Petrie

My lovely little plugin has given you the synopsis which isn’t too bad for a description of the contents of this little tome. I bought this some time ago wanting to support the author, I’d known of him for some time but this is the first time I’ve managed to actually hold his book in […]

Through my email

Yes, I’m just like anyone else and need a good headline but I object to clickbait. Today I have the good, the […]

Cary Grant: Haunted Idol – Geoffrey Wansell

Cary Grant is one of the most well-remembered movie stars from the 20th Century despite the fact he hasn’t appeared in a movie since 1966. If you haven’t seen Arsenic and Old Lace, His Girl Friday or Topper then your education is sadly lacking and I suggest you go and remedy that post haste and tout […]

Sales of 1984 skyrocket

I’ve casually mentioned 1984 in a brief article by George Orwell only a few months ago. What far too many of us couldn’t anticipate is that this book would now be rocketing up the charts and selling out. If you want a particular copy you might be waiting a while as Signet has sold out, but […]
