Time for some more bad films…

You may have spotted our brand new show The Really Bad Film Podcast where Rob and Rich re-watched Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. Considered by many to be a flawed film, they tried to find its redeeming features. But that isn’t the only bad film they’ll be watching this month.

Confession time: epic fail on Literary Scotland podcast

We have a confession to make – it looks like we should have done a bit more research before setting ourselves the challenge of recording a podcast about Literary Scotland when on holiday on the shores of Loch Fyne, a hour away from Glasgow. Please accept our apologies for not putting out a podcast today but we hope the two bonus podcast last week – Rob’s new venture with his brother Rich, The Really Bad Film Podcast, and Kate’s interview with Tom Pollock on Adventures With Words Young Adult Edition – will go some way to making up for it.

Our Lady of the Streets

Review: Our Lady of the Streets by Tom Pollock

Usually, I would start my reviews with the blurb from the back of the book. In this case, Our Lady of the Streets is the third part in The Skyscraper Throne trilogy. If you’ve not read parts 1 (The City’s Son – review here) or 2 (The Glass Republic – review here), the blurb will contain small spoilers that I don’t want to give away. However, please do go ahead and read my review of The City’s Son and then read the first two parts of the trilogy – they’re fantastic! If you’ve read those, or you’re not worried about small spoilers, go right ahead and click Read More – here’s my review of Our Lady of the Streets.

Stay Where You Are And Then Leave

What I’ll be reading before #LightsOut – Stay Where You Are And Then Leave by John Boyne

Everyone in the UK is invited to take part in LIGHTS OUT by turning off their lights from 10pm to 11pm tonight, 4th August, leaving on a single light or candle for a shared moment of reflection. The inspiration for LIGHTS OUT comes from a famous remark made on the eve of the outbreak of war by the then Foreign Secretary, Sir Edward Grey: “The lamps are going out all over Europe; we shall not see them lit again in our life-time”. Britain declared war on Germany at 11pm on 4 August 1914 ushering in one of the darkest periods in our history. When the lights go out, and the candles are lit, I’ll be picking up my copy of Stay Where You Are And Then Leave by John Boyle.
