North Manchester FM: Hannah’s Bookshelf, Saturday 4th June, 2-4pm

Join me on Saturday at 2pm on North Manchester FM for more News, Reviews and Short Interviews on Hannah’s Bookshelf. Here’s what’s coming up on this week’s show…

An interview with RJ Dark Back in August 2017, I interviewed fantasy writer RJ Barker. Today I’ll be talking to a crime writer who bears a strange resemblance to Barker! RJ Dark is the author of the Mal & Jackie crime series. His debut novel A Numbers Game and its sequel Incy Wincy are both published by Wavesback. He lives in a crumbling ancient mansion somewhere in Yorkshire and is surrounded by books, music, animals and his family. And in case you’re interested, here are the books RJ’s evil twin selected for Apocalypse Books: Consider Phlebas and Look to Windward by Iain M. Banks, and Watership Down by Richard Adams.

A review of a book by Anita Sethi I’ll be talking about I Belong Here: A Journey Along the Backbone of Britain (out now from Bloomsbury).

A review of a book by Simon Bestwick I’ll be reviewing Black Mountain, a novel by Simon Bestwick (out now from Independent Legions Publishing).

And What Are You Reading?… the section of the show where I ask writers about the books they’re reading at the moment. This week I’ve got another selection of reviews and recommendations. And if you’re a writer who’d like to take part, check out this post with details of how to join in!

Plus… you can hear my round-up of news from the World of Words. If you’ve got a news story you’d like to share, please use the News Form to submit it to the show.
