During my quiet phase over the holidays, Dave Lull has been his usual creatively active self. I have pretty much caught up with him now over at Librarian’s Place. Many of the articles he has sent are worth more than simply putting up over there, but realistically, I don’t have time to comment on them all. So let me instead urge you to go over there to look at the articles. Here are some of the highlights:
- A fascinating interview with the talented, unique author Clare Dudman, friend of Petrona and, of course, Keeper of the Snails.
- Mary Jackson’s “Google-thwart” — the realisation that you are not as clever as you thought you were, and that minds far greater than yours, and sometimes an embarrassingly large number of them, have got there first.
- A moving article by Prairiemary about Steve Solovich, her brother, survival and loss.
- Why so many detective stories are set in churches. (One answer is that they aren’t, particularly, you can find tens or probably hundreds of detective stories in virtually any context you care to dream up.)
For all these and more, please visit Librarian’s Place and partake of the feast of articles and links provided by our ever-vigilant OWL.
