I love the homage to

Posted on Thu, 10 Feb 2022

I love the homage to Lovecraft, and indeed Poe. And once again you have taken us to Glastonbury Tor and delivered all the atmosphere there. Like Jenny, I wanted more! You say it's a draft - have you got any plans for developing it further? I was...

Oh my goodness, this was one

Posted on Fri, 11 Feb 2022

Oh my goodness, this was one of my favourite fairy tales when I was younger, and you don't often hear about it now. As ever, you have crafted it into something totally original, while retaining the feel and mood of the original. And what a...

Posted on Thu, 27 Jan 2022

I'm loving this, reading with a smile on my face, lots of chuckles, and at least one coffee-spurt each episode. Last time it was 'not all people in publishing are people', this time it's Justin James. Keep them coming.

'The schemer of the faltering

Posted on Sun, 23 Jan 2022

'The schemer of the faltering scheme' - brilliant. Along with all the rest. I can always hear you reading these aloud Sean, whenever a new one comes up. And that makes me smile.

Posted on Mon, 24 Jan 2022

You've really captured the atmosphere of the Tor so well. It's many years since I've been, but this vividly brought it all back. I get the same feelings around standing stones - I was interested to read Jenny's comment about Avebury, which has a...

Posted on Sun, 23 Jan 2022

Delightful! Thoroughly enjoyed it. Some marvellous (no pun intended) superhero and supervillain names and characters. Great piece of writing.

There's always so much

Posted on Wed, 19 Jan 2022

There's always so much meticulous research in these pieces, Jean. I didn't know anything about Newman's interest in music. You always provide an interesting starting point for further investigation by your reader!

Beautiful language. I too was

Posted on Tue, 18 Jan 2022

Beautiful language. I too was particularly struck by the image of the stars scattering, so it's interesting what you say about wolves eating the stars. Also the last two lines, 'together there is a way through the forest' really evoked that image...

This really evoked a memory

Posted on Tue, 18 Jan 2022

This really evoked a memory in me, Jenny - I think I must have gone there as a child, even though I can't actually remember the occasion. Poetry does that for us - brings up memories and emotions that are normally lying just below the surface....
