It’s been a busy few weeks, so just some short updates.
Review of He’s Just Not That Into You here (Swedish).
My piece on The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo republished by Courrier international here (French).
Visited Nya Vågen with my friend and mentor Roger Wilson to discuss Watchmen, both the masterful graphic novel and the significantly more humdrum movie. The programme is here, we’re on about half an hour in.
If you’re in Oxford, you should check out the Philip Pullman keynote speech for our Place and Space in Children’s Literature conference on Friday, 27th. It is at the O’Reilly Theatre, Keble College, Parks road on 5.30 PM and open to the public; tickets (8/5) at the door.
If you are or can be in Denmark over Easter, I’d like to point out that ticket sales for the world’s best role-playing convention Fastaval have only partly closed – it is still possible to buy entrance tickets, pre-order food, buy a banquet ticket and reserve accommodation. Finding games once you get there is simple, and besides there will be excellent company in the bars. Guest of Honour is Emily Care Boss. If you only want to come for a day, day tickets are available at the door. I would recommend Easter Sunday (Day 5 in Fastaval parlance) because of some great lectures and a gig with folktronica masters Valravn in the evening. If you want the Sunday brunch, however, you’ll have to pre-order – check the website for details.
