No idea what's wrong with the site right now. I am, of course, vaguely worried that I've broken it.

Did you know that Charles Finney's The Circus of Dr Lao was back in print? It's a strange, and funny, and haunting book that's nothing at all like the Tony Randall film (although that's probably forgotten these days as well).

Somebody wanted to know more details about the Mervyn Peake biography. Here's the Washington Post review, by the inestimable Michael Swanwick.

And, with two days left to go on Archer's Goon, it's Daniel Pinkwater's The Snarkout Boys and the Avocado of Death will be the next book I read aloud to Maddy. And if you think I'm just choosing books I secretly want to read out loud, well, you're right.
