In case of book launch…

March 17, 2014

So, as April (and The Moon King) approaches, the pre-launch ducks continue to be put in rows. This weekend’s task was Choosing A Reading Passage. In case, you know, an occasion should arise where a reading might be called for (and there might, there might…I’m working on it). This is a new challenge for me. When […]

I like a good fiction podcast from time to time. They’re good company when you’re working through something long and drudgey at work, and when they’re done well, they’re excellent. My paragon for audio presentation of fiction is BBC4extra. Understandably, since it’s a huge, professional organisation. But there are a lot of skilled independent and […]

On St Andrews Day, 1872, the first ever official international football match was held at West Of Scotland Cricket Ground in Glasgow. The game, of between Scotland and England, was watched by 4000 people, and ended goalless. I’m very much hoping (and would be HUGELY surprised if it does) that the score won’t be the […]

Round about this time every year I start to check the calendar to see how many weeks are left until Eastercon, one of my cherished biannual breaks spent in the company of my excellent friends in the genre writing community.  And, on finding out that it’s still six weeks distant (*sigh*!) I’m always a little […]

Kudos to those plucky few – performers and audience alike – who braved the weather, thanks to Fressh for being wonderfully generous hosts and special commiserations to Santa for severe image-blackening he received on several fronts. All the readings – from Mo Blake, Ian Hunter, […]

Christmas Entertainment!!!

So, you’ve done all your Christmas shopping, crammed half of Tesco’s into your freezer, trimmed the tree, wrapped the pressies and performed a complex mathematical analysis of the Radio Times in order to programme the PVR to make sure you don’t miss anything important on the telly over the next couple of weeks. Now you […]

Various Variety

Being, in the main, a round-up of random stuff from the last week. It’s been one of those weeks. Life is so a Cabaret - spent the weekend in London watching various varieties of cabaret performance. Most especially lovely to see Miss Leggy Pee taking her unique brand of charming on the road to such […]
