    My bad Justin. I was just joking. Unfortunately I am virtually monolingual - I did French badly at school.

    I remember a similar concern with texting that hasn't quite come to pass. You'd get the usual apocalyptic headlines from the right wing press predicting the fall of modern civilisation when some daft...

    Yes. We had a games teacher like Brian Glover who didn't like losing. Very odd that he though beating 12 year olds important.

    Oh yes.
    I don't think this was handled clumsily but in a realistic manner. The discovery of the fact in retrograde adds poignancy to what for Evans is a significant moment. In a usual novel such a...

    Hi Easy - no I don't know the bit you mean.

    Good review Easy. I'd like to add some more thoughts on the book.

    Agreed.

    It is ostensibly occult based, but this is based upon a view of witchcraft that is a romantic view.

    There's always the overtly occult Dennis Wheatley with such works as The Irish Witch, The Devil Rides Out, To the Devil a Daughter etc. The style is a bit dated, but they make good thrillers

    A good haul of poems. It has made this thread good fun.

    People and Pigeons

    Out in the city
    pigeons wheel, people parade.
    Crowds; a slow flocking.

    After Christmas

    Arse end of the year.
    Sudden chills, flu, a half time.
    New numbers change things.

    Trotsky and Santa

    Clothed in red, alive and dead,
    corporeal and corporate,
    yet seemingly so disparate.

    Red connected, though poles apart,
    the snow and ice pick out their mark.
    Both of them...

    Time now rolls onward;
    not round and round, though my head
    spins- unadjusted.

    Christmas Eve

    Christmas Eve darkness
    full of the blue stars watching.
    Birdsong but no bells.

    Christmas Eve at 12

    A twelve o'clock song.
    The frosty night rings with birds

    Red faced men gather by pubs,
    Red faced women shop.

    Wishes

    Out Christmas shopping.
    Try to buy seasonal joy
    that cannot be bought.

    This seasonal joy;
    the flashing mulled wine laughter,
    lulling stocking dreams.

    And so you sit and talk until
    your day will drift away and then
    the night creeps slow beneath your door;
    night swallows, your face hits the floor,
    and who was then is now no more.
