The Outcast Blade (The Assassini book 2) by Jon Courtenay Grimwood (book review).

‘The Outcast Blade’ is the second ‘act’ of ‘The Assassini’, an alt-historic fantasy focusing on the political and romantic intrigues of fifteenth-century Venice; it follows on from ‘The Fallen Blade’, which I didn’t really enjoy and is considerably more assured than its predecessor.

Burying Brian by Steven Pirie	(book review).

Humour is a very transitory thing and each of us have a different idea of what we find funny. Our tastes change as we get older. Visual humour can be reasonably universal. Whether we want to, be all tend to laugh at the pratt-all, partly out of embarrassment, partly because we are glad it wasn’t […]
