Ghost Writer

Ghost Writer is an incredible but true story as told to Tim Mackintosh-Smith. Most Slightly Foxed readers will be aware that books, as Milton put it, are not absolutely dead things. Few of us, however, realize quite how alive and talkative our libraries are. Ghost Writer is the voice of an insider, 800 years old but going strong – an autobiography straight from the shelf.

Between the Lines

Linda Leatherbarrow’s short story Between the Lines features Rose, a recently retired museum curator, her landlord Mr Aldridge, Mr Aldridge’s cat Izzy, and the changes wrought in all their lives when Rose, on impulse, acquires some old wooden type and Mr Aldridge begins reliving his past in the print business. Its author Linda Leatherbarrow, one of our regular contributors, is a distinguished short-story writer whose work has been published in many magazines and anthologies and won many awards. Her take on life is quirky, her voice humorous, and her penetrating eye misses no detail, as is evident in this new story. We loved it and believe you – or indeed any bookish friend or relative will do too.
