    Original review A couple of days ago, I reviewed Arthur M Steven s The Blue Book of Charts to Winning Chess , one of the most dismally misguided chess books ever written Unfortunately, the author had spent most of his life writing it I d only borrowed him as a hook on which to hang a Twilight related parody I really must stop doing this , and, overcome by rather tardy remorse, I thought I d go to Google and find out what people had to say about his masterpiece After a few minutes, I gaveOriginal review A couple of days ago, I review...

    Five character studies short stories, mostly of writers artists creative types, often with a supernatural bent They reOK Beerbohm had a light comic touch and a lovely name but some of these don t land that well and the one s that do land don t land all that hard I did quite enjoy the first short story, in which a hack writer with pretensions of genius visits the future only to discover his descendants have no...

    A mixed bag between meh and sublime, but sadly with a slow decline towards the former.Enoch Soames already read it seperately and it s possibly one of my favourite ludicrous shorts, housing everything you could possibly want in early British twentieth century fiction Five stars.Hilary Maltby and Stephen Braxton a laboriously slow start, that sl...
