Aw, sorry your thread's so lonely, Terry. I don't really follow blogs and reviews and things like that, but I wanted to post something here so you know at least one person is reading your thread. I'm sure others are too; they're just rendered speechless, that's all!

Actually, I might read your review of Bob Lock's book - I was most impressed with his stories in Des' Nemos.

I'm all right, you know, I get by. I have my telly and pet cat and a comfy chair. Cccasionally the postman calls with a bill or two or I might shuffle down to the corner shop for tin of soup and a paper. Just get on with your own lives and have fun, I wouldn't want any of you to feel guilty on my account. I mean, why should you? Sigh, I'll be okay here all on my own.

Cheers

The trouble with the internet is that there are so many *able* to think they are competing for the same channel of attention.

Thanks folks.

"Rank Poison" is next on the list Ally. I try to post at least one review per week.

I have to say what this is the livliest and most intellectually stimulating message board I have been on.

I'm enjoying your reviews too. It might be worth popping each one onto a separate page, to make it easier for authors and publishers to link to them. That's by far where most of my hits come from.

Dear Caroline

I also share my birthday with the day Donald Campbell had his fatal accident on that lake. Thank you for not asking my age. That means I don't have to confess to being 54.

And, Frankie boy, bring it on...

In that case, you also share your year of birth with me!

And have you noticed, you're not lonely on this thread any more?

I've just posted reviews for "Way Home" and "Run Free", a pair of novels by the intriguing, beguiling Andrew Fisher. Not a name many of you will have heard of but his books are witty, ambiguous (particularly "Run Free"), possibly children's stories, possibly not, and worthy of your interest.

The publisher, Opel Press don't have much of a presence on the web so contact me if you're interested.

A review of "Sein und Werden: Pharmacopoiea" is now on my Exaggerated Web Site at http://exaggeratedpress.weebly.com/index.html

If you haven't tried "Sein und Werden", then I suggest you get yourslef a copy (4 only!) or go to their website for an on-line version. It is an adenturous, edgy and often highly entertining publication.

I'm about to review their new chapbook, "A Tour of Beaujardin" by Marc Lowe, which I would also highly recommend. lowe is a writer I am fast coming to love.

Next will be Gary Fry's "House of Canted Steps", halfway through it, great ghost story so far.

Cheers
Terry

Thanks for the kind comments. The review was well-deserved Gary.

It is a little strange when the reviewer gets a good review for a review. A bit like a night club proclaiming that they have "'Live DJs' in da house". I mean, are there clubs with dead ones? Do the DJs actually play the musical instruments? Did they write the songs? Since when has a mere purveyor of other people's art earned the right to be proclaimed? Anyway, what's that got to do with this book, or thread?

My review output has slowed down lately due to my other writing committments, but I will soldier on because I think books deserve reviews.
