What excellent company you are!

I have been devoted to your podcast for over a year; it could be improved only by being more frequent. Every book I have ordered from you has been a delight; nothing disappoints. I receive your emails with pleasure, and that’s saying a lot. Slightly Foxed is a source of content . . . ’

Stumbling with Precision

Stumbling with Precision

According to Dorothy Dunnett’s fans, she is one of Scotland’s greatest writers. They descend on Edinburgh for their annual symposium on Dorothy Dunnett Day. They read the books alongside a 900-page Dorothy Dunnett Companion. They maintain two rival Dorothy Dunnett websites, and a Dorothy Dunnett Twitter feed, squabbling over every detail of the books with a heartfelt but rather off-putting enthusiasm. Since discovering Dorothy’s delights during frequent long railway journeys, I have joined their ranks. What we train commuters require is shaggy-dog stories, the longer the better, funny, intricate and with plenty of dashing about. I close my eyes and listen to the audiobooks, a remarkable performance by the Scottish voice actor David Monteath.

Historical Adventure Novels for the Young at Heart | Last Ronald Welch Sets Remaining

Historical Adventure Novels for the Young at Heart | Last Ronald Welch Sets Remaining

Greetings from Hoxton Square where a rootle through the stock and stationery cupboards in search of more wrapping paper has revealed that we are down to our last 20 sets of Ronald Welch’s gripping historical adventure novels for children. And so, herewith, a hastily thrown-together email from the bookish elves here at Foxed HQ to let you know that if you’ve been thinking of investing in a set as a present for a young-at-heart reader, with stocks dwindling and the last recommended posting dates for Christmas fast approaching, now would be a good moment to do so.

A Calendar of Covers for 2024 | Celebrating 20 years of Slightly Foxed

Our special anniversary Slightly Foxed 2024 Wall Calendar is here, featuring a selection of readers’ favourite Slightly Foxed cover artwork from the past 20 years. We have just published the 80th issue of Slightly Foxed: The Real Reader’s Quarterly and in March 2024 Slightly Foxed will be celebrating its 20th year and and we’ve decided to mark the occasion with an anniversary calendar featuring some more of the seasonal Slightly Foxed covers that readers enjoy so much. It’s a handsome, spiral-bound decorative wall calendar printed on sturdy paper with a board backing, and we feel it will raise the spirits and look good in any room. It would make a charming present for anyone who loves Slightly Foxed, or indeed for anyone who hasn’t yet come across it.
