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

5021335137_a2b2f3f309_oIt’s autumn now – leaves are turning, the season is beautiful but melancholy. Any day now, the Harvest Moon will be up (almost a misnomer these days, with so much of the harvest gathered in by now. Still, it is a sight full of wonder). Do the Bookfoxes feel particularly autumnal? I know one of them does (that would be me) and the theme of my book choice this week, nature writing at its most raw and vulnerable, feels right for the season. Alongside this we have a review by Guest Fox Holly with the intriguing word ‘fanfic’ in the strapline – I can hardly wait – and some vintage sf from Kirsty D.

Monday: Guest poster Holly writes about Rainbow Rowell’s fanfic novel Fangirl.

Wednesday: Kirsty D confronts one of her reading prejudices and takes on one of Philip K. Dick’s SF classics.

Friday: Hilary loses herself in the deeply personal, heart-on-sleeve nature writing in H is for Hawk, by Helen Macdonald.
