I promise there’ll be several proper posts this week (two book reviews, a comics post and probably a politics one). In particular, I’ve decided that I’m going to do at least one comics post every week from now on – I’ve been neglecting that side of things too much. But for now, some links:
Lawrence Miles (that link will almost certainly break – he takes his blog posts down after a few days) talks about his problems with the Welsh Series, many of which I share.
