A relatively short and spoiler-free post about the ninth historical novel in The Last Kingdom series by historical fiction virtuoso Bernard Cornwell.
The Man Whose Teeth Were All Exactly Alike is a non-science fiction story set in suburban American in the early 1960s. It is a dark comedy of misunderstanding between two troubled married couples.

Humpty Dumpty in Oakland is another one of Philip K Dick’s non-science fiction books. It was written in 1960, but not published until 1986, posthumously.
The Crack in Space is not one of Dick’s best books, despite it being written in a very productive period of time (1963-64). However, it does contain numerous interesting ideas, not least of which is America’s first black president.
This series was inspired by the near-futuristic paintings of Swedish artist Simon Stålenhag, so perhaps it’s no surprise that sometimes watching it is akin to walking around an art gallery.
Anyone who follows me will know that I have a real soft spot for anything to do with Ghost in the Shell, even when it’s a decidedly non-Japanese Hollywood adaptation. So it was with some trepidation but a glimmer of excitement that I watched the trailer for the new Netflix show.
In 2017, Siggy and I went to Santorini, a Greek island I had been dreaming about visiting for years.
In 2015, Siggy and I were in Kos and we took a boat trip over to the neighbouring island of Nisyros.
In 2013 we went to Skaithos – like many others before us, not for the first or last time. We went on ‘around the island’ and ‘Mamma Mia’ boat trips from Skiathos Town on a boat called the Kalypso.
