  1. Thanks for visiting my blog. I just dipped quickly into yours and got derailed before I could really get started by the Goodreads mention of ‘The Worm at the Core.’ I shall return to your blog with interest later but just wanted to expressed my thanks for this unexpected benefit. I attend a Death Cafe regularly, as you may know from my blog, and this book looks like obligatory reading for me.

    1. Thank you for your kind words! I find that really interesting, since I have an academic interest in death–in fact, next month I’ll be giving a conference at the Universidad Complutense on the subject! Some other very interesting books are Becker’s “The Denial of Death” and Fran Kermode “The Sense of an Ending”; they are my primary sources. I would love to discuss this topic further!

      1. Thanks for the heads up on the two other books. The Becker one, which I had never heard of, looks particularly intriguing. I’ve ordered ‘Worm at the Core’ which is on its way. I’m at the beginning of a journey in terms of such perspectives about death as my interest so far has either been personal (death has been at the centre of many of my experiences since childhood) or psychological (usually in terms of what strange experiences close to death might suggest about the nature of consciousness.)

      2. I’m glad to be of help! Death is indeed fascinating, and I feel intrigued by your perspective on it. All the work I’ve done on it has been on a social or an anthropological level—I like to see what defence mechanisms whole civilisations put in place when faced with such a strange and intriguing event in our lives.

  2. You went and done it. You went and followed Uncle Bardie’s Stories & Such. You are now one of Uncle Bardie’s Band of Merry Followers. Just so you know, Uncle Bardie’s a hoot, and he’s got quite a few whoppers in his bag of stories. Some funny, some not so funny. But all told for your entertainment. Thank you for following his blog.

  3. I’m very impressed by your list of professional qualifications, and your present occupation in the Oxford bookshop sounds wonderful to a book lover like me. Where would we be without our books? I adore Oxford, too, having once lived in a nearby village for six years. I try to review the books I’ve read, and have written quite a few reviews in the past. Unfortunately both my reading and reviewing is at a much slower pace nowadays due to lack of time.
    I’ll enjoy having a browse through some of your posts as soon as I can. 🙂

      1. My pleasure! Well done for self-publishing. How’s it going and how are you finding the process? Do you have a plan in place re marketing – surely one of the hardest aspects? All the best with it – I hope it goes brilliantly 🙂

  4. Hi. *steps in, circles the floor with tippy-toes of one foot, blushes* I saw yesterday that you followed me, and even liked my blog-post. Thank you so much for that. How on earth did you find it?? You are my first real follower (website-wise) and I am absolutely flashed by your site. Your blog is very extensive, I can only hope mine will grow into something similar:) I’ll check out what you have done on wattpad so far 😉 All the best to you!

      1. Haha! Thank you! I started with Wattpad about two years back, and it has been a very rewarding experience, although I don’t have a huge following:) But those that do read my stuff are amazing people. (And not just cause they read my scribblings)
        Tell me what you think about TSR if you get a chance to pick it up. I started reading your work, it has amazing artwork! Loving the whole concept so far. Laters!
