A review of a novel by Jonathan Young and Dennis Houghton… I’ll be talking about Key to Yesterday, a new novel (partly set in Manchester) by local authors Jonathan Young and Dennis Houghton.
An interview with Lucy Hounsom… I first interviewed Lucy in August 2017. She is the author of The Worldmaker Trilogy, and her first book, Starborn, was shortlisted in the 2016 Gemmell Awards for Best Fantasy Debut. Her fourth book, Sistersong, a reimagining of the folk tale ‘The Twa Sisters’ is set in Devon and is published by Pan Macmillan in 2021. And in case you were wondering, Lucy’s Apocalypse Books selections were The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by J.K. Rowling, and Middlemarch by George Eliot.
A review of a new book by Ramsey Campbell… I’ll be reviewing The Searching Dead, a new novel by horror legend Ramsey Campbell (out now from Flame Tree Press).
