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

Fox in summerErm, where did the summer come from? Suddenly – in Oxford, at least – it’s turned into a blaze of sunshine and summeriness.

Now this, of course, is an excuse to read outside. We’re still going to be reading, whatever the weather. Obviously. And we’ve got our usual eclectic mix of posts to help tempt you.

But we’re keeping the titles and authors pretty mysterious for now…

Monday: Moral panic, Satanic worship, teen suicide. Cath reviews a pitch black tale of 1990s coming of age.

Wednesday: Is there such a thing as a modern day Golden Age murder mystery? Simon reviews one possibility.

Friday: Sharon is entertained by a biography of one of the 19th century’s most important figures.
