I've been hearing about reports in Sudan that soldiers have started protecting demonstrators from the security forces. Hopefully this means Omar al-Bashir will be going the same way as Bouteflika.

one can only hope....

Dear Brexit Agony Aunt I am taking the bike to Holland on the 17th apart from needing an EDP do I think this will affect me in any way?

I love the way people think that a trading group, interested in money and little else will change their lives whether they are part of it or not. You are really not that important to Brussels as an individual.

finished One Word Kill. Very different to Marks usual style and not as descriptive as it's a real world setting.
Good though and I will review as time allows.

The Guardian were pretty damning, I think? Will give it a try at some point.

Yeah I tend to look at the guardian reviews for tech and buy stuff they never consider, for writing there is some crossover but I never reject a read just because they do.

So Ed was publicly vilified by multiple (fictional) sources and various influencers within the SFF became involved as did his publisher. Potentially career ending stuff and I am not just talking about his writing. meanwhile there is speculation within the community as to the nature of the allegations.
Luckily evidence was found to exonerate him or at least cast doubt on the validity of the allegations, and if it hadn’t been?

Finished a pest of a book and a boy in trouble by PF chisholm/Patricia Finney and both were very good short historical fiction. I found One Word Kill was free on my kindle so read far later into the morning than I should have done. Marks writing is excellent as ever. I found the description of a 1980's Oncology ward was depressingly real.

Adrian Selby is none to gentle with his and puts them in out of control situations and positions of helplessness.

Looks like his publisher has given up on Scott

Finished Meddling kids a marvellous read with surprisingly good prose. The action scenes let it down mildly but overall a great and compelling read if a little lighter than I tend to go for.

Will start A pest of a boy on Kindle by PF Chisholm and The Cold Commands by Richard Morgan as a real book.
