The Call of The Weird

[image error]

“There was a little boy, who wouldn’t go to sleep.”  Thus began my older son’s favorite book in the entire world.  It’s called Night Cars and I read that book so often that until very recently I could recite it all from memory.  Not so much now.  It’s been too long.  But I probabl...

You should know that I will be joined by BOTH @chompersthecorgi and @linusthecorgi when I roll through San Francisco on my #MEDALLIONSTATUS tour.

Matthew Dicks Matthew Dicks's blog:

Compliments?

I hear from readers and listeners and audience members every day. Most are kind and thoughtful, even when they are also challenging or ornery or disagreeable.

Some of the things written to me bring me to tears. They are messages that I will save for the rest of my life.

Sometimes trolls visit me,...

Why do people believe the Earth is flat?

I have an op-ed in today’s Globe and Mail, “Why do people believe the Earth is flat?” wherein I connect the rise of conspiratorial thinking to the rise in actual conspiracies, in which increasingly concentrated industries are able to come up with collective lobbying positions that result in ev...

নাস্তিকতা একটি (অন্ধ)বিশ্বাস !!

নাসতিকতা হলো হাল আমলের ফযাশন, অনতত আমার অভিজঞতা তাই বলে। তারুণযের মনচাহি জিনদেগীর সামনে বাধার মতো দাঁড়িয়ে থাকে ধরম, তাই ধরম ছেড়ে দিলে খালি মজা আর মজা (যদিও নাসতিকদের মাঝে আতমহতযার হ...

would you stay if she promised to you heaven?

It's late, my dears. Time to unwind, sip on some chamomile tea, change into your most comfortable silk chemise and slide right between those covers into a wonderfully restful bed.

Being the contrary beast I am, however, I come alive at night. I love to see the world when the daylight folks go to... Read more of this blog post »

Inspiration Behind Nilay's Wish

Nilay’s Wish grew out of the lack of stories in the English language surrounding the original people of India's Saurashtra region. The history of Saurashtra’s silk weavers who migrated to south India’s Tamil Nadu is rich and fascinating.

From fleeing repeated raids in 1027 CE to earning the illus... Read more of this blog post »

Tana French Interview with Tana French
Dublin crime novelist Tana French has the kind of critical reviews that other writers would…well, die for. Her debut murder mystery, In the Woods , won rave reviews and multiple literary prizes upon its release in 2007. Since then, her books have tended to haunt the bestseller lists, on both sides of the pond, and for months at a time. British newspaper The Independent has dubbed French "The First Lady of Irish Crime," and The Washington Post says she is the most important crime novelist to emerge in the past ten years. ...more
