New book signing agreed: Waterstone’s Derby on 9 July from 11am. Never been to that store before, so no idea what it’s like.
Watched the British movie Black Death at the weekend. Set in 1348. Sean Bean plays a soldier of the Church hunting for a necromancer (and any witches who pop up along the way). It’s actually a pretty good script – with a plot and some genuine characterisation rather than the usual low-budget gratuitous horror. The fight scenes are a bit brutal, but fans of the gothic should definitely give it a look. Tim McInnery’s also in it (Captain Darling from Blackadder).
