Ever since Estella’s Revenge came to an end I’m been vaguely thinking that maybe a book forum/discussion site might be a nice idea. So, with some encouragement from Anne I have decided to give it a go. At the moment I’m keeping it on the blog’s url until I can figure out if it needs a url/space of its own. So I guess you could say it is in testing.
ISBN: 9781400064717 See also: Excerpt ; Interview with author I’ve read two other books by Russell; The Sparrow, which I loved, and Children of God which was very good, but just didn’t hit me in the same way, so when Heather and Andi of Estella’s Revenge emailed their list of review books and this was […]
I know, I know, for some of you furrin types it isn’t yet winter. But here in Ireland November marks the start of winter. Proof. It is also the start of the Celtic year, and a Holy Day of Obligation. Cafflics, have you been to mass? Today is also the publication date for November’s Estella’s […]
Attn:This will be nothing more than a boring whats going on post. No complaining now:, you’ve been warned. Work is loike, mad busy, roight.

On the face of it, it’s a show about police and drug dealers in contemporary Baltimore – but that’s a woefully simplistic description.

By some margin, this is the most ambitious, complex drama serial ever created.
First of all I’d like to join with Carl and say “I’m a bookaholic.” It was only last week that I’d never been in the brand spanking new Chapters shop on Parnell st., but once I’d been I just kept returning. Picking more books that I know I never really intended to buy. I just […]
Táim, like officially, ró-te. Ró-fricking-te. Also, I forgot to mention that Issue #4 of Estella’s Revenge is up. And focusing on Freedom. I’m supposin’ on account of that holiday all you American types had yesterday. Did I mention I’m too hot? Linknotes: – yeah, that is what the Irish bits mean. ↩
Issue no. 2 of Estella’s Revenge is up. Have I mentioned the webzine here before? Probably not. Well, go take a look and you’ll see what its all about. Honestly, do you expect me to spoon-feed you all your life and tell you that is a zine with no real definite topic, but covers books, […]
A quick round-up of various oddments: So I went to see V for Vendetta last night. It was really, surprisingly, good. Go see. Though I am glad that James Purefoy wasn’t in it, because watching him, but all dressed up in a mask and cape would have been frustrating. Thats all beside the point. The […]
