Holborn Talk

I shall be giving a talk about 'Tunnels Under Holborn' on the evening of Thursday 13th July.  It's for The Friends of Lincoln's Inn  Fields, but I understand that anyone who's interested can come along.

The talk starts at 7.00pm and is FREE.  You will need to book through Eventbrite.  More details can be found there.

It will be held at No.32 Lincoln's Inn Fields (the Old Land Registry building, now part of the London School of Economics) - more here.

Books will be for sale at the usual discount.  I shall have copies of my books that have recently gone out of print.

10th July  This event is now fully booked.  However, in my recent experience with Eventbrite at least 50% of those who book don't show up - so if you're really keen it may be worth a gamble if it's not too much trouble.

I shall also be doing a walk on Decadent London towards the end of August.  Details to follow soon.

Publishing and Event News

Today in Hastings I had an enjoyable lunch with an interesting chap called Gareth Brookes (not to be confused with country superstar Garth Brooks).  He's a graphic novelist/comic artist based in London who produces his work with linocut and embroidery - it therefore takes years to complete one book.

Take a look at his work here.

Work on the republication of one of my most popular recent books is continuing - I am hoping to have more news in the next month or so.

I have discovered this week that three of my books with Historical Publications are now out of print:

London's Coffee Houses, a Stimulating Story details

Decadent London details

Folklore of London details

There are a few copies remaining and I will be selling them at talks this year, or online when I have hopefully set up the facilities later in the year.

Don't forget the two London talks (tickets still available):

Christopher Josiffe on Gef the Talking Mongoose on 23 June.  Book here.

Kieron Tyler on The Damned on 7th July.  Book here.
