Join me on Saturday at 2pm on North Manchester FM for more News, Reviews and Short Interviews on Hannah’s Bookshelf. Here’s what’s coming up on this week’s show…
A review of a poetry collection by Jean-Luc Champerret… I’ll be reviewing The Lascaux Notebooks by Jean-Luc Champerret (translated by Philip Terry, and out now from Carcanet).
An interview with R.L. Halsall… R.L. Halsall was first on the show back in November 2018, but most recently won the 2021 3 Minute Scares competition on Hannah’s Bookshelf. R.L. is a Manchester based writer with a particular love of macabre Lovecraftian fiction. They have been writing since childhood, landing their first printed story at the age of eighteen. Their debut book of short stories, The Grave Bell, is now available on Amazon in Kindle and paperback format. And in case you’re curious, their Apocalypse Books selections were The Book of Lost Things by John Connolly, The Books of Blood by Clive Barker, and Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov.
A review of a new book by Angela Stienne… I’ll be talking about Mummified: The Stories Behind Egyptian Mummies in Museums (out now from Manchester University Press).
And What Are You Reading?… the section of the show where I ask writers about the books they’re reading at the moment. This week I’ve got another selection of reviews and recommendations. And if you’re a writer who’d like to take part, check out this post with details of how to join in!
Plus… you can hear my round-up of news from the World of Words. If you’ve got a news story you’d like to share, please use the News Form to submit it to the show.
Catch the show on Saturday at 2pm on 106.6FM (if you’re in the North Manchester area) or listen online (if you’re further afield).
