The summer is here because the rain is warm and the thunder is louder than usual. It's infuriating but this is Britain and the weather ignores instructions from forecasters as a matter of tradition.
So I have ordered some books, which have now arrived.
Night's Black Agents by Daniel Ogden promises a view of the ancient world's approach to witches and the dead. We shall see. The book of English magic, by Philip Carr-Gomm and Richard Heygate is a weighty tome, even in paperback. That'll take a while.
So. Reading in the rain sounds good for the time being.
