Francis Spufford, Red Plenty (2010)


I'm perfectly well aware that Punkadiddle has latterly been host to a surprisingly lengthy run of positive reviews. If I'm not careful, this blog will lose its carefully won reputation for bile, cynicism, sour-grapeage and vitriol. Still; not much I can do when a book is as good as this one. My review of Francis Spufford's Red Plenty is over on Strange Horizon now.

The solution is simple: you must review some paranormal romances and/or Terry Goodkind.

This looks like a fine, fine book. Thanks for the tip-off.

"Advertisements for a firm of slave-traders" - V. Nabokov.

The particular firm in question is out of business, but as can be seen - say by K. McLeod's enthusiastic boosting - nostalgia for it continues.
