Ramblings

#indieluv

This was supposed to be a brief and jolly post, just enough to point you to this fantastic listing of independently published and small press books, available right now for your reading and gift-buying pleasure. … but then, I was going to talk about #indieluv, as well. I don’t often talk about #indieluv (I usually […]

A terrible admission

I’m terribly bad about leaving reviews. Yeah, me: I should know better. The worst of it is that when I run through my list of stock excuses I realise very quickly that they are all things that I know are not really true. For my own future reference, then, and for the benefit of anyone […]

Little acorns

Where does inspiration come from? That’s one I don’t expect to ever work out. Often, I don’t think I even notice it as it happens. If I do, then the moment is long forgotten by the time I’ve kicked the idea around a bit, married it to something out of the maybe file, failed to […]

Must try harder

There are a few books, books that I’ve known for a long time, books that I’ve read again and again (books like Nevil Shute’s Lonely Road, for example) that I’ve actually thought about enough, over time, to write a bloggable review of. There are […]

I have picked up a project that has been on the backburner for a while, and as a result I am in a position to report that the Alex Brightsmith of six months ago – who it seems was far too busy to type up her notes – was an extraordinarily irritating person to transcribe […]

Pirates of Industry

I think I’ve commented before on the risk that should my writing ever be liberated from the need to pay the mortgage by other means it might suffer from the lack of stimulation (it’s a risk, for the record, that I’m more than willing to take). I had a beautiful example of the sort of […]

A rebellious imagination

On the link you’ll find a web page devoted to a working replica of the Matthew, the ship in which John Cabot first reached Newfoundland in 1497. She’s only a best guess, because the information about her namesake is frustratingly sparse, but she’s a caravel of the correct tonnage, so she won’t be very far […]
