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.
Hallowe’en has been and gone, Guy Fawkes Night (here in the UK) is fast approaching and the clocks have gone back. Long, dark evenings are upon us – the perfect time for a little genre-bending. From comedy-sci-fi-romance through suburban gothic to mayhem in a tower block, this week it’s fiction with a twist on Vulpes Libris – just how we like it.
Monday: Thanks to a timely reminder from Cath, Eve has found the superb Resistance is Futile by Jenny Colgan buried on her Kindle.
Wednesday: Kirsty D has chosen the perfect time of year to visit The Loney.
Friday: After a visit to Le Corbusier’s Cité Radieuse and a passing glimpse of Goldfinger’s Balfron Tower, Hilary feels ready for J G Ballard’s High Rise.
