Bernard Cornwell chose this, the anniversary of William Shakespeare's death, to announce his next novel: Fools and Mortals. It will follow young Richard Shakespeare as he tries to make his way in the acting world, dominated by his estranged older brother. Publication is set for mid-October in the U.K.
On that note, here's a little piece of fascination I found:
Today -- St. George's Day, incidentally -- starts the last week of Read of England, and it's gone fairly well, I believe. Two books are waiting to be reviewed, one of which is from my Classics Club list, and another I've been sawing away at for weeks is nigh toppled. Fifty pages to go!
