From my local newspaper: "If Ray Bradbury and Shirley Jackson had a love-child, it would be Neil Gaiman." He has a new book out, The Ocean at the End of the Land. If I'm not mistaken, there are several Gaiman fans here at DC who'll be interested. I'm thinking particularly of a certain Princess named Fiona.

I have been reading my way through old, stacked up newspapers. The news is no longer current - well, except a couple of items seem new to me at times. There are columnists and food pages and things I keep up with. Those things aren't priority, though, and I have a batch from when I had lots of other things to do. Slowly, I'll see the bottom of the stack again.

Just finished Kate Mosse's "Labyrinth" and started the first in the "Tales of the City" series. It was televised over here some years ago and I loved it so when I saw the books on that website named after a South American river I had to invest.

I always find that with radio plays and series. It's always a shock when an actor or actress from a series on the radio appears in a television programme and looks completely different fom my mind's eye idea of what they should look like.
