The Book of the Year and other beasts

My contribution to the Tablet’s annual books-of-the-year roundup, along with a whole host of far more famous people, is free to view here.

On the VL front, I enthuse about Cardinal Newman here; have a bit of a rant about An Infamous Army here; and talk about a fabulous new collection of ghost stories by the Curious Tales collective here.

Project SJ has been rather quiet due to reasons beyond my control, but I am revving up for a fabulous new start in 2015: details here.

And if you’re so minded, you can buy my very silly Ruritanian romantic-comedy-satire-with-horses-in The Last Prince here.
