Sayers Fans Alert – Tony Medawar (ed.): Bodies from the Library 2

This collection concludes with a previously and otherwise unpublished, privately owned Lord Peter Wimsey story!!  And it’s a good one, too.  (Pre-Harriet, but with, inter alia, a spirited exchange between Peter and another young lady on the prevailing clichés about women.)

Woohoo!

On a largely unrelated note, I’m going to use this book for Genre: Suspense, not Darkest London (as I had originally planned) as my 15th extra square.  Turns out that the settings are all over the place, from various parts of England to North America, with only a small part of the stories set in London — too much of a stretch for a square named for that city specifically.  Plenty of other books more noticeably set in London to fill the Darkest London square (which I’m still planning to do as well, though).

J.R.R. Tolkien: The Lord of the Rings – Performed by Andy Serkis

In another online community, we recently talked about the new Andy Serkis Lord of the Rings recordings.  Well, it turns out that the pull of The Ring is still mighty strong, for however much it may have been destroyed in Mount Doom. I had barely gotten my hands on these audios and I found I […]
