The Other Room reviewed

Thanks to all who came to our seventh birthday event on 30th April, which was, in the words, of Judy Gordon, a night of “meltdowns, anthropomorphic puzzles, and other surprises”. Thanks to Judy and Write Out Loud for this review, which you can read in full here.

Lou Rowan: A Preview

LR: In my single-digit years I’d sit on the floor by the supermarket magazine rack reading comics. I felt that Superman and Superboy were more “real” and “normal” than the Marvel Comics heroes. The Superman movies I’ve found pretty average, but liked the Lois character, except for the sanctimonious Lois in the latest movie. The novel uses the basic knowledge any American might have of our primary superhero.

Lou will read at The Other Room 7th birthday, 30th April.
