London Churches, Part 4

London Churches part 4 image

"The Bank of England. I've never actually seen it before. Monolithic building, like a ziggurat. Staring blank walls, fortress-like. Two grey-haired bearded men in black overcoats, polished black shoes, pacing the pavement, side by side, both smoking cigars, deep in conversation. Incredible: like something out of the 1920s. Grey-haired men with cigars, controlling the economy."

Dr Hairy in: Appraisal (Part 1)

Appraisal 01 image

The eighth in a series of 10-minute videos about the adventures and frustrations of an ordinary (but rather hirsute) General Practitioner. In this one, Dr Hairy tries to prepare for his appraisal - with hilarious results! The first of four parts.

Nightingale's Playground image

New on The Hyperliterature Exchange and Furtherfield for February 2011 - a review of Andy Campbell's four-part digital mystery-story, "Nightingale's Playground", which appeared online last year.

And, Chapters 25-32

"They heard Dixon's foot. A stern thought compressed her brows, and set her teeth. It was Dixon's measured tread. They heard her walk."

Continuing the abridged version of Elizabeth Gaskell's North and South - abridged on the principle of leaving out all the important bits. The sinister Dixon may or may not be dead. The long-awaited Frederick arrives at last, only to be no more spoken of. Margaret fancies porters.
