Greetings, dear readers. We’re delighted to announce that the new Autumn issue of Slightly Foxed (No. 75) has now left the printing press at Smith Settle and will start to arrive with subscribers in the UK very soon and elsewhere over the next few weeks. It ranges far and wide in the usual eclectic manner:
Galen O’Hanlon goes to the seaside with R. C. Sherriff • Ysenda Maxtone Graham enjoys a housewife’s wartime diaries • Christopher Rush meets Miss Jean Brodie in her prime • David Fleming goes monster hunting in Loch Ness • Sue Quinn celebrates Florence White’s English cooking • Adam Sisman faces a Martian invasion with H. G. Wells, and much more besides . . .
With it, as usual, you’ll find a print copy of our latest Readers’ Catalogue, listing new books, our backlist, seasonal reading from other publishers’ bookshelves and a selection of offers and bundles. We hope it will provide plenty of recommendations for reading off the beaten track this autumn.
If you’re not a subscriber to the quarterly (and we do encourage all readers to consider a subscription, for it comes with a host of benefits – as well as receiving a handsome parcel each quarter, you’d be enjoying free access to the full digital archive of the magazine and discounted rates on all books and goods too!) then you might like to have a closer look at the latest issue and browse the season’s other offerings.
And for those of you on a repeat order to receive the same hand-numbered copy of each quarter’s limited-edition memoir, your copy of Nella Last’s War should be with you soon.
We look forward to the welcome wave of correspondence that the turn of each new quarter brings. Meantime, as ever, happy reading.
With all good wishes from the SF office staff
Anna, Hattie & Jess
‘I have a deep, almost obsessional, love of books and my best friend told me about Slightly Foxed. I’ve listened to your podcast, become a quarterly subscriber and have ordered a few books within my first month . . . and certainly will be ordering more. Every offering is a true gem.’ B.
