Defensive geek argues that some genre or other is being neglected by the mainstream, which basically means the Booker Prize.

Five other posts focusing on aspects of the Booker Prize in which our affected cynicism fails to mask our jejune enthrallment.

Flash fiction: turns out it’s not fiction about The Flash. But is it the future?!

What books do you like to read while paragliding?

Isn’t it time this antiquated author from a bygone era was rebranded as ‘relevant’ and published in new editions with nice covers and enticing blurbs from contemporary favourites such as Ian McEwan or Nick Hornby? Isn’t it?

    The Guardian…I can never quite put my finger on why but so often it manages to make my skin crawl. Having just read Mark Steel’s ‘Reasons to be cheerful’ (and in it an account of his time at the paper) I’m less and less likely to be picking it up or browsing its sites.
    I’m on a Mark Steel mission this year. May even set up that cult.
