Newsie bites (dreaded lurgy edition)

Maudlin Self Pity Section

There has been a dearth of updates lately, my lovelies. Apologies to you all. Assorted unwellnesses of the most tedious kind have been keeping my writing down to a minimum, and I’m particularly overdue on many reviews (will have to do a round-up). It’s been all I can manage to keep up with the Gig Guide. If I haven’t responded to an email, please send a reminder. If anyone wants to take my sinusitis, bronchitis and conjunctivitis, I am intrigued by your views and wish to subscribe to your newsletter.
