21 to 30 August 2014

"…fast-mouthed and funny…It has the old-fashioned Broadway virtues of brightness without pretensions and sentimentality without morals." —Village Voice

Life is not going well for LA TV star Andrew Rally. His popular medical drama has been cancelled, his girlfriend is clinging to her virginity, and he’s accidentally bought a medieval duplex in New York. The duplex turns out to be the former home of the renowned actor John Barrymore – the greatest Hamlet of all time. Andrew has, however, been offered the chance to play Hamlet in Central Park. The only problem is, he hates Hamlet…

Gordon Campbell: Classics - Tales From Moominvalley
Can’t speak for the reading end of it but the Moomins ( or maybe the story about Margaret Wise Brown) were the most enjoyable subject to think about and write about during these whole first 50 issues of Werewolf. For that reason – and because the Moomins always reward re-reading – I’ve decided to reprint it. The only added element is a link to an interesting hour long documentary about Tove Jansson. More>>
