‘Slightly Foxed comes four times a year and turns that day into gold’
We’re delighted to let you know that the Autumn issue of Slightly Foxed magazine (No. 63) left the printing press at Smith Settle late last week and should now be with our readers in the UK and arriving elsewhere over the next few weeks. It ranges far and wide in the usual eclectic manner:
Patrick Welland joins the British Council • Jacqueline Wilson puts on her ballet shoes • Michael Barber looks back with gratitude • Miranda Seymour relishes the twilight hour • Christopher Rush agrees ’tis better to have loved and lost • Sue Gee enjoys life without handlebars • Anthony Longden suffers with Lord Alanbrooke • Linda Leatherbarrow remembers Penelope Fitzgerald • Sue Gaisford hears the sound of chariots • Tim Mackintosh-Smith puts a tyger in his tank • Ysenda Maxtone Graham finds time for rhyme, and much more besides . . .
We hope it will provide plenty of recommendations for reading off the beaten track this autumn. With it, as usual, you’ll find a copy of our latest Readers’ Catalogue, detailing new books, our backlist, books featured in the latest issue of the quarterly, recommended seasonal reading and other offers and bundles.
If you’re not a subscriber to the quarterly (and if not may we ask why not? For if you were, as well as receiving a handsome parcel of bookish delights through your letterbox each quarter, you’d be enjoying discounted rates on all books and goods and offers from our partners too!) then you might like to scroll down for a preview of the new issue and the season’s other offerings.
We do hope you’ll enjoy the new issue of the quarterly, wherever in the world you are. If you have already ordered our new limited-editions of Roald Dahl’s Boy and the first two of Rosemary Sutcliff’s Roman novels then they’ll be with you very soon, if not already.
We’ll leave you in peace to browse while we get back to dealing with the delicious flurry of orders, emails, letters and postcards that the turn of the new quarter brings.
With best wishes as ever from the SF office staff
