Details Accumulate

Ash-Tree Press, 2013.
A favourite of mine since I first read it in the 1970s, Edward Lucas White's "The Snout" is a good story burdened by a frame.

Frames can be effective when they bracket a story that the narrator has failed to understand, or when they add further implications to a story that mi... Read more of this blog post »

Guarding Your Emotional Life

“Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life..” Holy Bible: Proverbs 4:23


What is more important than keeping our thoughts clean? The Bible says they make our life. If I dwell on hate, I become hateful. As a writer I must be careful not to let blackness enter my bloodst...

Urban Hiking at Tryon Creek with Finn McSpool

My usual exercise routine of running and walking sometimes gets, well, a bit too routine. Mr Husband and I mix it up now and then with an early morning round of stand-up paddle boarding (with Finn McSpool joining in, although he’s not very helpful in the paddling department as you can see HERE).

Павел Пепперштейн. Предатель ада.





Решил я тут ознакомиться с творчеством Павла Пепперштейна. Решил потому, что в последнее время мне то и дело попадется на глаза его имя. И те, кто его упоминают, говорят о нем непременно в превосходных тонах. Он и самый лучший современный автор, и чуть ли не гений русской словесности. А в книжном...

Trump and “It’s a Wonderful Life”

Remember George Bailey? He’s the guy Jimmy Stuart played in It’s a Wonderful Life, that classic feel-good film that we’ve all seen so many times.  The whole point of that movie is to underscore the idea that one good man like George Bailey can have an incredible impact on the well-being of a comm...

A Nostalgia Trigger From the Grotty Floating Hovel: Slipknot’s We Are Not Your Kind

So Slipknot have released a new album and it’s a winner, beating even Ed Sheeran in the charts and delivering a slice of post-nu-metal that satisfies this nostalgic punter on so, so many levels.


But beyond the simple enjoyment of tucking into the fresh material of a band with whom you’ve intermitt...

Fish ‘n’ Faith

“Put out into the deep water, and let down the nets for a catch.” —Luke 5:4 NIV


I’m not crazy about fish, but I am crazy about my husband, so a few years ago we took a family vacation trip to Canada—to go fishing, of course. Terrified of deep water, I strapped on my life vest as tightly as I co...

I do love words and truly enjoy coming across words I’m not familiar with.


So I’m sharing a word a week—many of which seem to have fallen out of common usage, alas, although others might be familiar. I’m also including words that appear in my books that readers have told me they didn’t recognize.

范佩西:桑切斯仍然有气力 他在曼联需要找回快乐

范佩西但愿桑切斯昏倒 范佩西但愿桑切斯昏倒


  自从加盟曼联后,桑切斯的表示犹如灾难。曼联如今也骑虎难下,桑切斯状态不佳,球队也迟迟无法将他洗濯归队。曼联名将范佩西则认为,桑切斯还能够抢救一下。


  范佩西:“桑切斯仍然是一个很棒的球员,他需要找到一种体式格局重拾快乐。当你过得开心,你会有创造力,并且享用足球。他刚加盟曼联时就是如此,现在我需要找回这种体式格局。”


  “桑切斯仍然有气力,仍然是一个很棒的球员。他只是看起来不开心,至于缘由,我不知道。我只能猜想,从外界看来,他看起来很不开心,他需要在曼联重新找到刚来时的那份快乐。”

Agujas de tristeza 2/54 (Ciudades de sal)

Agujas de tristeza,

inmensas, desgarradas.


Un cielo cubierto de dragones,

de luminiscencias aserradas

que hienden la montaña.


Este grito sin destinatario,

torrente sangriento de los dioses,

perversa sinfonía de lamentos.

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
