News roundup and Waterstones Piccadilly Event

I will be doing an event at Waterstones Piccadilly on the 15th September, with the authors Sally Gardner, Chris Priestley and Taran Marathu. It's at 6.30pm - do come along. We will be exploring other worlds - not literally, of course, but do bring an astronaut's suit should you so wish.

More details here. This event is free but please email to RSVP

I've reviewed three books whilst I've been away: firstly, Cressida Cowell's How To Fight a Dragon's Fury, for the Telegraph, available here. 

Secondly, Tessa Hadley's new novel, The Past, done for the Independent on Sunday, available here.

And finally, Harry Mount's new book, Harry Mount's Odyssey, I reviewed for Literary Review; not available online, but you can go in actual personhood to an actual newsagent and buy a copy of the September issue, which has got reams of other splendid stuff to read.
