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.

Sam Ruddock

Sam1smallA former bookseller, Sam now works for Writers’ Centre Norwich where he helps promote, develop, and explore the artistic and social power of creative writing. If it didn’t sound so glib he might say it was his dream job.  He lives with his beautiful wife Megan and their two cats in Norwich.

Put simply, Sam loves books. No, it’s more specific than that. He likes stories. He likes stories that take him on a journey he doesn’t ever want to end. Then he writes about them in the hope that somewhere in the plethora of words there will be an an image to cling to, and remember the joyous experience.

He then post his musings on his book review blog, Check it out, and please comment. He loves to hear from bibliophiles even when (especially when) they disagree with everything he says. After all, how else is he to learn?

He is waving at you now, through the information superhighway, and hopes you are waving back.
