Crimea…

It’s probably just me, but every time I hear or read something about the current conflict in the Crimea, place names like┬áSevastopol and Simferopol, my mind immediately goes back to Jasper Fforde’s Thursday Next series?

If you haven’t read them, and you love literature, history, science fiction, and absurdity, or some of these, there’s a good chance this series is for you. I’ve read the term “comic fantasy” and I guess that fits…

Looking through my notes (I use Evernote, it’s pretty useful, if you like that sort of thing, I just wish it had an ‘archive’ function) and incomplete drafts on here, there’s quite a lot of things I’d like to or I’ve thought about writing on at some point, and not yet got around to it.

I’ll list a few with some explanation in a minute, but first I’m wondering what you’d like to hear my thoughts or read about? I’m going to make a poll (because that sounds like fun and I’ve not done one before), but I’d much rather comments ­čÖé
