Review: Fellside by M.R. Carey

Posted 16 January, 2017 by Rinn in Review / 10 Comments

Well, this was incredibly disappointing. After the absolutely astonishing book that was The Girl With All The Gifts, I expected something just as amazing from M.R. Carey the second time round. Sadly, it was not to be. I wouldn’t call this horror, not in the same way that The Girl With All The Gifts was. […]

Books Inspired By Works of Art

Art inspires and moves, art invokes and demands response. Centuries ago, even those that could not read were able to look at and understand, or interpret, works of art.
