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.

This week on Vulpes Libris …

5292932136_9dc0146a15_oHallowe’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.
