Friday’s Forgotten Books: Rosencrantz and Guildenstern

No, not the one you’re thinking of, much as I love my Stoppard: I mean in fact W. S. Gilbert’s play: Rosencrantz and Guildenstern A Tragic Episode, in Three Tabloids, founded on an Old Danish Legend I just started reading McCrum’s giant doorstop biography of P. G. Wodehouse, who of course adored Gilbert and at…

Dundee Spring

Hanging out in the Howff on a sunny day 🙂 Always a delight.

Playing in the Mud

Spring may have slipped in while we were all looking at the snow that fell east of us (sorry, Connecticut). Our little spring is flowing great guns but we’re going to be digging it out a little to form a grotto. I visualise something like a Brigit well. I have new wellies and everything. We…

Building Interest

I really do like the blue walls and ceiling and bookshelves in my office. Suddenly it’s a whole new world. More places for books and media, but also a whole different feel to the place as well. Even once I took the blue paint masking tape off the windows and it no longer looked like…

DIY

Kipper is not amused. Kipper and Connor get on well for the most part. The occasional toy dispute ruffles a few feathers. My first NY breakfast with local syrup for local people.

50 Word Fiction: The Clown

THE CLOWN K. A. Laity It was the clown. The party had been lively enough before her arrival. She promised fun on her website, that balloon-littered vomit of Pantone tones with too many gurning gifs. But the children were weeping now and several demanded to go home. Unmitigated disaster. Not everyone could tell jokes, eh?…

Still Audacious!

Me and the Cap’n and the Rev are still here to lead you into the unknown waters of 2014 (as captured in deft strokes by Vincent Holland-Keen). I don’t know about you, but January has flown past for me. It’s about the time that resolutions begin to flag. Time to reassess. What’s working? What isn’t?…

Speeding Along through January

Whoosh — that’s the sound of January speeding past. It feels as if the holidays just ended, yet here we are almost at the end of the month. Which means hey! It’s Miss Wendy‘s birthday today 🙂 Happy birthday, my friend. Bits of news from my frenzied activities of late: publications of course, also knocking…

Friday Friends Folderol

Kate — you say to me so very often — you have fabulous friends! What are they up to these days? I’m glad you asked: Necon E-Books and the New England Horror Writers are conducting a blog tour in honour of the late Les Daniels, a Necon stalwart and indefatigable writer on a wide range…
