Twas Dublin’s annual day of sunshine yesterday so I toddled into town to see the RHA annual show and some lovely paintings by Al Freney, Cian Mcloughlin and Francis O’Toole. There is also a big Colin Davidson portrait, which was some conciliation to see as I stupidly missed his Jerusalem show in Oliver Sears Gallery. The lively sculpture of Michael Quane is always a highlight; how he makes stone look malleable as clay is beyond me. The best draftsmanship, secondo me, is to be found on the ground floor in the exquisite form of two small pencil drawings by Sahoko Blake. See it before the 9th August.

“I love when a book that wasn’t on my radar comes my way and takes me by surprise.”  That’s from Tenacious Reader’s review of Irenicon. Reviewer Lisa Taylor focuses on protagonist Sofia, as does Carlyle Clark from Heroines of Fantasy.  Finally, my interview for Epic Stream with the terrifically-titled Jake Vyper, can be read here.

Cheerio! AH

I just had an illuminating chat with Brian Staveley about Fantasy, Faulkner and fightin’. Brian is the author of The Emperor’s Blades, the first book of new trilogy, recently published by Tor Books. Here it is: Zen and the Art of Fantasy.
