Welcome to my blog, where I write about all manner of things... 

books and stuff

Bought recently (Buffalo Girls by Ursula Le Guin, We by Yevgeny Zamyatin, The Tiger's Wife by Tea Obreht and A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness): Tres excited. And these... Have Space Suit Will Travel is one of my favourite titles of all time... and isn't that Sean Connery on the left? It is! The book of a John Boorman film? Excellent.

I LOVE BOOKS. Especially weird 60s and 70s science fiction and fantasy books.

I also ordered a copy of War with the Newts by Karel Capek. I can't wait for it to arrive.

On another note, here is a great set of articles here about Mervyn Peake and the Gormenghast trilogy. A fabulous, convoluted, rich, complex... I don't even know how to describe this set of books. Just read them.
