• After These Messages … We’ll Be Right Back

    (Remember that old TV jingle. No? Anyone?)

    As I have been wading through manuscripts for the Observer story contest, and Justine has been busy holding down the fort in my absence, our blog has been quiet this week. Tomorrow we will resume our regularly scheduled programming.

    Today I’d like to point you to this excellent and entertaining piece by WBN friend Daniel Kalder: “When Writers Kill,” published today in The Guardian.

    A brief excerpt:

    “Another great author-killer is Leo Tolstoy. It’s been a while since I read The Sevastopol Sketches, his account of his military experiences in the Crimean war, but I do note that in later life he grew a very long beard and took to munching vegetables, so he was undoubtedly much less gung ho about killing than Cervantes.”
