    Roxbrough's Leger

    So I am now up to page 118 on my book of the month which is Clive Barker's - Mr. B Gone. The archbishop had just burned the girl upside down, her hair catching fire and Mr. B having to leave because of her screams. Barker write the entire think like black comedy to dull the horror and it works well.

    October / November 2014: Clive Barker, Mr. B Gone

    I've read the part where the demon is burned in a fire made from his own curses. Then kills his father before being dragged from the bowels of hell up into the world of men. He kisses the beautiful girl who falls into a boiling vat and has the flesh boiled from her face. Not really as horrible...

    The Clive Barker looks promising. Lovecraft is unreadable, flowery and incredibly dated. Gaiman sounds like 'young adult' fare. Clive for me.

    Lovecraft is incredibly dry and I doubt many would read it now. It is very dated.

    So next week Scotland votes for independence from the UK

    Speaking as someone who served in the British Army for many years and served along side Scots, Welsh and English, my feeling is obviously that Wales and England would be only too happy to wave the Scots goodbye. I don't think for one second that they will have the guts to go independent and lose...

    Fake reviewers on the attack on Amazon

    Does anyone actually read the reviews of others? I have a mind of my own and think critics are a waste of time. One man's meat etc etc.....

    Is the internet being used too much by authors?

    I agree with the statement that personal information on the net is dangerous. As only 25% of actors use their real names, it would also be best if authors all used fake names, for simple safety's sake.

    Roth - Divergence. Very disappointed with this. it's a children's book but contains some scenarios that are not suitable for children. I suspect that the tag 'young adults' was Roth's excuse for poor writing. Very little descriptive passages and poor character development, not recommended. I...
