Discworld December Group Read: Guards! Guards!

 

In all the Festive Tasks excitement, let’s all not forget that our December group read also starts today — and it’s a truly great one (IMHO one of the best books in the entire series): the first book of the Night Watch subseries, and though actually written almost exactly 30 years ago, Pratchett could have published it, essentially word for word, as his comment on today’s world.  I read it for Halloween Bingo 2019 and was completely and utterly blown away.

Speaking of Festive Tasks, however, it of course does also qualify for the “Hogswatch” book task … as well as “Festivus”, “All Saints’ Day / Día de los Muertos”, and “Guy Fawkes Night”.

(Gosh … […]

Dorothy L. Sayers: The Five Red Herrings

Dorothy L. Sayers is occasionally accused of having gotten too caught up in her research for a given book; and the two mysteries that routinely come up in this context are The Nine Tailors (bell ringing, published in 1934) and, well, The Five Red Herrings (1931), which, although chiefly concerned with fishing and painting, also […]
