Two more days to go and the #TOPcrime2012 will kick off in Harrogate. Hopefully there won't be any roaming cows like the ones I saw on the news this morning marching across Harrogate surburban gardens!

Books read recently:
Shadow of Night by Deborah Harkness - fantastic. I couldn't wait for the paperback so I splashed out and got the hardback from Waterstones (thanks ladies) and I want to re-read it again now. It's book 2 in a trilogy so if you haven't read book 1 'A Discovery of Witches' I recommend it. It has vampires, witches, and daemons in it but there's a nice twist on the mythology there and (unlike some people who reviewed it on Amazon) I found the historical bits interesting rather than dry. Your mileage may vary.

The Apocalypse Codex - the latest in the Laundry series by Charles Stross. Very good; looking at magic with computers and defending the world from the Old Ones and idiots intent on helping them pass through from one universe to another. Reading this reminded me how much I'd enjoyed the others so now I'm going back and re-reading them from the beginning.

And in other news:
After a delay, chapter 2 is under way and ticking along nicely. I'm still in the early stages of a work rosy glow at the moment. It will no doubt wear off shortly.

Did you go to the festival yourself? It sounds like a blast!

BTW, I need to contact you about the forum (lots of changes, none of 'em by us...) but have lost your email. If you see this, can you drop me a line so I can explain? Ta!
