I have enjoyed Welwyn Wilton Katz before. The tie-in of Canadian and Scottish politics with magic in “Come Like Shadows”, made an exceptionally original novel.

Although I really enjoyed this book both as an adolescent and later, I think I got rid of it because it disturbed me so much to have witchcraft equated with Satanism in it. It is a fun horror thriller, pitting a normal boy against his evil stepmother - who in this case is REALLY EVIL. Great, exciting, climactic ending.

Everyone has interests. Some people like my father had very few but he knew everything about them and received an OBE for the work he did on one of them during the second world war. Obviously this anecdote shows that having only a few interests isn't a bad thing. However, sometimes I think that the more things people are interested in, the more chance they have of becoming a traditionally publishe ...more
