I walk past Waterstones (a bookshop) on my way into work, and they usually have some sort of window display for a featured book. This month I was pleasantly surprised to see the Wayfarer from Becky Chambers' absolutely splendid The Long Way To A Small, Angry Planet (as read here, here but not here) taking centre stage.
While not quite as I imagined it, the Wayfarer is at least recognisable with its tunnelling bore (the drill-like silver pointy thing hanging from the bottom), and the "fishbowl" (the clear dome that houses the garden and kitchen).
As you can see, Becky Chambers is coming to Waterstones in Norwich on the 26th July as part of a publicity tour for her new book Record Of A Spaceborn Few which is published next month. I can hardly wait!!!!
And now for the cygnets that I promised Mistress Maddie:
These photos were taken from the Blackfriars Bridge in Norwich (aka St George's Bridge) next to the art school that I attended in my yoof.
|I watched the pair of Mute Swans and their seven cygnets glide towards me on Monday, only thinking to get Phone out to take a photo after they'd passed under the bridge!|
|This photo (and the following two) were taken on Wednesday morning with the swans gliding the other way.|
|The seven cygnets were cheeping away constantly. I think mum and dad must have corks in their ears!|
|Here they are having just emerged from under the bridge.|
Have any of you walked past anything of note recently?
Chalk beds up next. Possibly. It depends on how distracted I get with Ms Scarlet's "exciting new series of posts" that she slaps up!
