Come vi avevo preannunciato un mesetto fa, ho terminato la scrittura di una novella fantasy intitolata Un duello per l’impero. Ora l’ho anche rimessa a posto per bene ed è pronta per essere pubblicata, cosa che avverrà a brevissimo.


Intanto facciamo un po’ di hype, che è cosa buona e giusta. A com...

Well, the exercise at the gym has been knackering me. I’ve done an hour plus in the morning seven out of the last eight days. I’ve then come back, done some work, eaten at about midday, then fallen asleep for one or two hours. Okay, I’m fifty-five so there’s that, but I am seeing quite rapid chan...

When you rhyme "handkerchief" with "mantlepiece"
It's just a way of showing that you know
Not rhyme but scansion, that you have the lease

And June moon dune's due soon -- ah, all t... Read more of this blog post »

Our Western affluence is a double-edged sword. The technological advances and creature comforts that come with it are certainly a great blessing. But too often, that blessing is abused as we are swept up in the quest for more, bigger, and better. In a culture dominated by ramp...

Historical NuancesThe world changes, sometimes very quickly. So it’s easy to forget what life was like in the not-too-distant past. That’s one advantage of reading well-written novels from different eras: they offer a look at life at a certain time and in a certain place. And sometimes they include subtle nuances...

Writers might flog themselves to blog, tweet until they turn blue, but months in, the magic hasn’t happened. Where are the book deals, the viral quantities of fame? Is it worth all the trouble...
