It's been an entire half-season of Doctor Who since I last blogged, and since I last downed an entire bottle of Chilean rosé (there is no coincidence there. Seek and ye shall find not) . The former has been variable and idiosyncratic, but that's precisely why I love it, and the finale was pretty damned excellent. The latter... well, it was much the same, and half-price at Tesco, so no complaints there.
I have been quiet, and this will be short, for the same reason - a new book. Not The Vagrant And The Snowflake (although I have been making good progress with it) but a new project, nonfiction and to be published under my real name for a change. I'm an old-fashioned bookseller at heart and for me it simply does not do for a fiction author to also write nonfiction, or vice versa, without giving or taking a pseudonym.
Anyway, more on that in due course. There is much to do, and now that Green Wing is suddenly available on 4OD I am distracted. I'm kind of in love with Lucinda Raikes.
