FAIRYTALES WITH BITE
Tonight’s post, Fairytale Jobs You Don’t Want, shows some of the roles in a magical world you really don’t want to be carrying out. That is, assuming you want a nice, healthy life span!
THIS WORLD AND OTHERS
The Unglamorous Side of Magic is tonight’s post and looks at the fact that every world has its lowest of the low. In a magical world, this “honour” is held by the lowly minion, that poor so-and-so who collects eye of newt for his/her witch bosses and so on. (No gender discrimination here either, anyone can be a lowly minion). There really are some jobs in life you don’t want. That includes the fictional life!
I discuss the joy of I-player and music tonight. I also talk about short story collections, particularly The Best of Cafelit 5. I have a flash fiction piece in this, Telling the Time, but felt it appropriate I should have my own Kindle copy of the book! I like the Kindle for all sorts of reasons but feel short story collections do work well on it, especially with the ability to bookmark your position and so on.
