Bringing in the May

Today is Walpurgisnacht, or May eve. Tomorrow comes the May. Beltane fires will burn in Edinburgh; 'Obby osses will parade in Padstow. In Birmingham, someone may remark upon the rain.

There appears to be something of a dearth of traditional festival celebrations in the second city and immediate surrounds. It's a tad depressing, really. All I'm asking for is a big bonfire, a bit of May blossom and a Read more of this blog post »

The Apocalypse Codex by Charles Stross

I liked this. There were some language awkwardnesses (a bit like that) that distracted me at first, but once into the story, these were forgotten. Good characters, good premise, lovely imagery. Tech-y but not too tech-y. And as a nearly-civil servant ...more

I really wanted to like this more, but, as the rating says - it was OK. There are some really nice ideas in it, but the story drags more than it should, and some of the strangeness seems more forced than it should. Have a read. But you may not be bot ...more

I enjoyed this. The world was built well, the characters well constructed (the torturer was my fave) and the whole thing hung together very well. One of those books you race through because you want to know what's going to happen. Then, of course, yo ...more

An enjoyable romp through the darker side of fairy tales. We all know how various folk tales were sanitized for family consumption - this heads back out into the lesser charted forest. It retains the narrative style that makes it read as if being tol ...more

Mind Over Matter by Ranulph Fiennes

Another warts and all tale of ridiculous endurance and how people in close constant proximity start to not like each other much. The author doesn't pull his punches. It seems impossible that man could manage such endeavours. Reading this, it seems ev ...more

Blitzcat by Robert Westall

I rarely bother with 'children's books'. Regardless, this caught my eye, and though it's a very easy read, it's a surprisingly good one. Blitzcat moves through the narrative like an amoral compass. The war may rage, but she is Cat, and above such thi ...more
