Literary Loitering 34 – Wigs Versus Ruffs

Literary Loitering 34 – Wigs Versus Ruffs

We return for another year of books and other artsy things, and we kick off our first show of 2016 with news about Philip Pullman’s withdrawal as patron of the Oxford Literary Festival, the Bare Lit. Festival, Shakespeare versus , a petition to name element 117 as “Octarine” and more.

Our featured books are Invasion of the Tearling by Erika Johansen and The Pagan Night (Book 1 of The Hallowed War), by Tim Akers.

Co-founder of The Geek Show Podcast Network. Chief Editor and Executive Producer of, and tangentially overburdened host/co-presenter of several shows on the network. When I'm not engaged in production, journalistic shenanigans or the quagmire that is media criticism I watch movies, interesting TV shows and anime, I also enjoy the arts (you know, classical music and stuff), write many, many things, play and collect a lot of video games, read lots of manga, comics and books, and generally enjoy wallowing in the mass of entertainment media like a hippo in mud. I can also cook.

Let us know what you think ...
