I need to get back to blogging on this site, I’m amazed how much time has passed since I last posted. Unfortunately not a great deal has happened in the interim; I’ve been steadily working, and I haven’t read any new fiction that I feel interested in writing about. In the last two months I have re-read my way through thirteen William Golding novels though, so I may at some point post about the cumulative effect of doing so (which is mainly to make contemporary fiction seem badly written and unbearably thin), and I have embarked on the quixotic project of attempting to teach myself ancient Greek, a subject which is obsessing me more than any other at the moment. I may write about that, even though it would be strictly from an amateur’s perspective, and probably of interest to very few people. And there’s a chance I may, possibly, perhaps, might, have interesting news in the next few weeks or so. But other than that, not much is going on.
