Vulpes Libris

A collective of bibliophiles talking about books. Book Fox (vulpes libris): small bibliovorous mammal of overactive imagination and uncommonly large bookshop expenses. Habitat: anywhere the rustle of pages can be heard.

Coming up on Vulpes Libris

Axis_axis_(Nagarhole,_2010)It’s all rather off-the-wall this week: psychogeography, cryptobotany, cyberpunk, talking cats, severed heads, urban fantasy and Lark Rise to Candleford. Hold on to your hats. This is going to get weird.

On Monday, Kate reads D K Mok’s urban fantasy  / cyberpunk / cryptobotanist thriller The Other Tree.

On Wednesday, Kirsty M talks psychogeography, fandom and writing routine with the multitalented Paul Cornell.

On Friday, Hilary hopes that one favourite author (Richard Mabey) writing about another (Flora Thompson) will prove even greater than the sum of the parts.

And on Saturday, Eve enthuses greatly about her latest favourite kids’ book.

    It’s tossed out so confidently–now I feel like the only one who doesn’t know.

    I don’t know what it is either!
    Really like this photo, the colors, the mood, the subject. Lovely.

    Psychogeography AND Paul Cornell – what an absolute treat that will be!
