Apparitions/ Father Jacob

News (I Hope) You Can Use

* My latest "Looking Back on Genre History" segment is a review of the centuries-spanning "Destroyed London" exhibit at Loncon 3/Worldcon. It's available on Episode 353 of StarShipSofa. If you listen, I hope you enjoy!

* Here's a petition to ask that Jamie Lloyd's current production of Richard III at Trafalgar Studios (with Martin Freeman in the title role) be recorded for either broadcast or DVD release. Here's hoping!

* In other news, the latest episode of Who Do You Think You Are? focuses on the ancestors of actor Martin Shaw. If, like me, you're a fan of Mr. Shaw -- or, like me, you're interested in 19th-century British Industrial history -- this episode is well worth watching. There's also an outtake scene available here.
