More great listening

On the BBC iplayer:

The Brothers Faversham - half hour episodes, each telling the life story of a fictional Victorian gentleman. Episode 1 was a famous soldier, 2 a great detective. Season 2 started playing this week:

The Consultants - 15 minute sketch shows that are brilliant. Episode 3 of season 1 is available at the moment. Apparently they made 4 series.

Frosty morning walk

The playground was covered in a light layer of frost this morning - very pretty, but very dangerous with a little guy who likes to run around, walk on fence posts, and jump up and down a lot. No injuries sustained but we did all come home a little chillier than when we left. Thank goodness for heat pumps, hot drinks and blankets :-)

Anthology preorders open



The 'Future is a Foreign Country' anthology is now available for preorder from Random Static Press. It's got short stories from a whole bunch of kiwi writers including Anna Caro, Matt Cowens (that's me!), Dale Elvy, J.C. Hart, Tim Jones, Ripley Patton, Simon Petrie and many others whose names I am not yet familiar with. The anthology is being released at Au Contraire, so they're expecting it to be in stock around August 2010.
