News...the I HAVE SHAKESPEARE edition

Hello everyone! I hope you're all having a good time. Mocks are nearly over now-I have more time to write and read!

So, after a trip to Islington's Oxfam, I got this
I have Orange is the New Black by Piper Kerman, Rosencrantz and Guildernstern are Dead by Tom Stoppard and the Complete Works of William Shakespeare by William Shakespeare. I love charity shops. That all came to less than £10!!!
Yes, I know I have the Shakespeare on my kindle. But now I have it on my bookcase. So it's easier to read. And annotate. And force on to people.   This will be very useful in my "Read at least 3/4 of Shakespeare's Works by the time you finish Sixth Form" goal!

Also, thanks to Quercus and Angry Robot, I have read Red by Allison Cherry and Last God Standing by  Michael Boatman. Reviews coming soon...

News! Kim Curran has things coming out- not just Delete, but also Glaze! I love the whole concept of this, and look forwards to May. More info at Kim's blog.

You know how I love Tom Pollock's The Skyscraper Throne? Jo Fletcher are organising a reread of everything in preparation for Our Lady of the Streets, which comes out in August. More details here.  Also, I don't think I ever fangirled properly over the covers. The City's Son and Our Lady of the Streets are set in this world, so they have white backgrounds, while The Glass Republic happens in London Under Glass, so it's black. Cover designers, don't ever stop.   Tom can be found on Death Books and Tea and on his website.

Chelsea Pitcher has a cover reveal for The Last Changeling. I really enjoyed The S Word (review here), and this looks completely different, but hopefully it'll be good. It comes in Autumn, from Flux. There's a US giveaway here, if anyone's interested.

Awesome of the week- Pulp Covers for Classics.  Here's my favourites-there's more at its website.
