Jane Austen with magic? Shades of Milk and Honey by Mary Robinette Kowal

Shades of Milk and Honey by Mary Robinette Kowal

No this is not one of those mashups, like Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. This is an original story, but with the setting, story-line and style heavily inspired by the works of Jane Austen. Except it's set in an alternate Regency period where magic is an art generally practiced by educated women.

Afraid? Me? What of?

Are you afraid of spiders? What about bottom-biting bog monsters? Or

Come and hear stories about a scared knight, a lonely spider and other
amazing creatures at 1pm on Saturday 11th February.

Final Days by Gary Gibson

Final Days by Gary Gibson

You might like this book if you enjoy:

  • action-filled thriller type plots
  • time travel
  • science fiction stories with philosophical implications, but not too much
  • doom and apocalypse

Keep reading if you would like to know my thoughts on Final Days in a context of hard science fiction. 

Happy New Year!

in

Happy New Year, The English Bookshop (2011) We want to wish all our friends and customers a great 2012 and thank you for 2011 which has been by far the best year for The English Bookshop in our entire 16 year history. Never before have we sold so many books, never before have we had so many great conversations with customers, read so many great books or had so much fun.

And it all comes down to you.
So from all of us at the shop(s):
Thank You for making sure we'll be around to see another year.
Together we will make it even better.
You all rock. (In a literary, sophisticated way, of course.)

…All I want for Christmas is a happy ending…

Christmas is coming: the geese are getting fat.

But that’s not all that’s happening.

Tyler is searching for an angel that looks just right. Sam is worried about polar bears. Dylan and Bronwen hear a ghost on Christmas Eve. But what about Bradley? He is setting a trap for Santa!

Come for yuletide yarns where things end well (except for the goose) at 1pm on Sunday 4th December.

Bring your family at 1pm on Saturday 5th November for a giggle.
