What I read recently
Over Sea, Under Stone by Susan Cooper
This is the first of The Dark is Rising Sequence, five books that tell the story of a group of children who join the age-old fight against the Dark. It’s a classic good versus evil fantasy, with Arthurian legend woven through it.
One of the authors whom I edit, and who has become a friend, surprised me yesterday by telling me that he had ordered the Folio Society edition of this book for me. It’s has beautiful illustrations by Laura Carlin and, like everything published by the Folio Society, looks absolutely stunning, from what I can see on the website.
What I’m Reading Now
Under the Pendulum Sun by Jeannette Ng and Dead Man’s Bones (Inspector McLean series) by James Oswald
Christian missionaries in fairyland and bloody ritual murders strike a nice balance.
