    My favourite is Guards! Guards! The missus likes the Witches series best, but only just. My son likes the Rincewind series best. Funny, I was just reading Terry's final tweet the other day. AT LAST, SIR TERRY, WE MUST WALK TOGETHER. Terry took Death’s arm and followed him through the doors...

    Wodehouse is the master. He is the only one that comes close to Pratchett. Maybe Tom Sharpe on occasion. If you are reading Pratchett, my personal opinion is the Colour of Magic and The Light Fantastic, the first two, are great for introducing you to Discworld, but there is an element of him...

    Withered Hand is on at the Cluny 2 in December. It’s a Saturday. I’ve a spare place if you want to join me. I’d pick you up if you like. There is a matinee and an evening, I’ve chosen the evening. I might have a spare for plastic mermaids too.

    Nice one. I’m seeing him tomorrow for the first time since he went off to Durham Uni and went straight into lockdown as the girl giving out the gowns at the matriculation ceremony had, unbeknownst to her, contracted Covid, which then spread to nigh on all 300 at the college.

    I am still yet to hear a version of this song, by anyone, that I don't like.

    I used to read a lot of fantasy and my son is a big fantasy reader. I managed to introduce him to Raymond Feist and Robert Jordan which he devoured and he also loved the Julian May Saga of the Exiles. He has quite a few others that he thinks are as good. Any you would recommend he read (or me)?

    One of the biggest pissers of this year - apart from the death, illness and financial difficulties, natch - is not being able to see these two live. The music is good, but nothing like the live experience. I really hope Howl & The Hum, Plastic Mermaids and Withered Hand audience with's go ahead.

    Indeed. Possibly the greatest anti-hero in fiction. That reminds me, I must read G M-F's WW2 diaries.

    The Crowe film was an amalgam of a few books, then tweaked a bit. Master and Commander is the first book in the series, Far Side Of The World is the 10th, which the plot is mainly derived from, but then changed from the War of 1812 between Britain and America to a few years earlier against the...

    (y) Iggulden, Bernard Cornwell and Simon Scarrow are proper good boys own holiday reads for me. I'm currently reading Prisoners of Geography: Ten Maps That Tell You Everything You Need To Know About Global Politics by Tim Marshall.

    Ghislane Maxwell

    I reckon it is 400 pages of denying she knew the girls were underage or that she procured them for sex. Will there be any non redacted interesting names though? Probably not.

    Well There We Have It, The Easy 'Oven Ready Deal' that Never Was...

    I know Starmer isn't saying anything about EFTA, he isn't saying anything about Brexit, full stop. He can't stop it, so he is accepting the situation and letting Brexit be owned, lock stock and barrel, for good or ill, by the Conservatives. It's politics, it's tactical, it's about biding your...
