They can’t yet show A Far Light ’cause it’s not yet officially published, so all you get is a few pics and my very first book,  An Index of Theme and Image to the Homilies of the Anglo-Saxon Church (1995).  For completists and the not-faint-of-heart only!  And, ok, the pic to the right is not Amazon books.

Nearing the end of proofing A Far Light and uploading its files to the publisher, I’m getting a bit broody over my next book, The Fetters in the Frost.  16,000 words in, I’ve had to put the manuscript aside to finish current business, but I’m keen to get back to it.  All in good time, my pretty . . .

Greetings from NYC!

chelsea marketFrom the Chelsea Market in Manhattan’s lower west side, to be more specific.  About to begin the long wing home, which should have me back in good shape to get stuck into The Canterbury Tales, the Middle English Mystery Plays, a new run of MLS Refectory poets, and–for the truly heroic among us–Beowulf with my Old English veterans.
