I'm absolutely appalled to discover that it's been nearly a year since I posted anything here - although hopefully part of that may be excused by the fact that I mislaid the password and only found it again after an extensive search. (The perils of getting older include the infamous Over Fifties Treasure Hunt ... you walk into a room carrying your glasses in one hand and you car keys in the oth... Read more of this blog post »

Adam Fitzroy and 3 other people liked Hyarrowen's review of Ghost Station:
Ghost Station by Adam Fitzroy
"In the hair-trigger world of 1970s Europe, two NATO servicemen go missing within a stone's throw of the border with East Germany. That's the cue for Ghost Station, a shadowy organisation based in an abandoned London Underground station, to become..." Read more of this review »
Stage Whispers by Adam Fitzroy
"A Hidden Gem!

The blurb/introduction for this book does not do it justice. It presents this story as a run of the mill mm romance between two actors and it is so much more than that. In fact this story is going on my list of 'exquisite reads for 20..." Read more of this review »
A Pride of Poppies by Julie Bozza
"What a beautiful anthology.

The stories here are set during World War One focusing on the lives that were touched in some way by this war. Here we meet soldiers and those who wanted to fight but were unable to. We meet mothers, sisters, brothers,..." Read more of this review »

I've rated this book with five stars because of the useful information it contains, but in reality it's more like 4.5 or 4.75 because it certainly isn't perfect. For one thing, all the travel information assumes that you are using public transport, w ...more

Henry Jenkins
“Fandom, after all, is born of a balance between fascination and frustration: if media content didn't fascinate us, there would be no desire to engage with it; but if it didn't frustrate us on some level, there would be no drive to rewrite or remake it.”
Henry Jenkins, Convergence Culture: Where Old and New Media Collide

Terry Pratchett
“There is a rumour going around that I have found God. I think this is unlikely because I have enough difficulty finding my keys, and there is empirical evidence that they exist.”
Terry Pratchett

“... Likewise, Oscar Wilde asked an English journalist to look over 'The Picture of Dorian Gray' before publication: "Will you also look after my 'wills' and 'shalls' in proof. I am Celtic in my use of these words, not English." Wilde's novel upset virtually every code of late Victorian respectability, but he had to get his modal auxiliaries just right.”
Andrew Elfenbein, Romanticism and the Rise of English

Mark Twain
“Good friends, good books, and a sleepy conscience: this is the ideal life.”
Mark Twain

Friedrich Nietzsche
“That which does not kill us makes us stronger.”
Friedrich Nietzsche
