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 this week on Vulpes Libris: The Writer’s Place

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThis week on Vulpes Libris we’re thinking about the writer’s place of work, where the words get honed and the adjectives get hammered. Three authors and a BookFox talk about where they write their books, what gets in the way, how drinking leads to pencil-boxes, how eavesdropping in cake shops garners good dialogue, and the serendipity of house-hunting.

Monday 19 September: Nicola Griffith, author of science fiction, lesbian noir and the historical novel Hild, talks about constructing new worlds on her desks in Seattle.

Wednesday 21 September: Ann Frasier describes how she found her voice again by writing in a Wisconsin church.

Thursday 22 September: Moira talks about writing in Rivendell (does Elrond know?)

Friday 23 September: Lisa Glass (yes, she’s a BookFox too) talks about writing her YA surfing trilogy in Cornish cake shops.
