Apologies for the lack of posts recently. There are lots of things I’m planning to blog about, but I have been swamped with work. Normal service will resume shortly. In the meantime, here are the details of some events I shall be speaking at in Liverpool. All are welcome:

I’ll be talking about James Ellroy to the Liverpool Gender Research Network at the Siren cafe on Sunday, May 18th at 1pm.

As part of their Lunchtime Literary Classics series I’ll be talking about George MacDonald Fraser’s The Flashman Papers at Waterstones Liverpool One on Wednesday, August 6th at 1pm.

I’ll be giving a talk ‘Royal Navy Films of the 1950s: A Voyage Through Post-War Britain’ on Thursday, October 2 at 126 Mount Pleasant, the Centre Lifelong Learning Building, 6:30 pm, and as a follow-up to that I’ll be introducing a screening of the classic war/noir hybrid The Ship That Died of Shame at the same location on Thursday, October 23 at 6pm.

The these last two events require enough people to sign up beforehand in order to go ahead, so if you are interested please contact the Centre for Lifelong Learning and book ahead.

Oh, and my better half will be giving a talk ‘Ice in the Blood: Women in Nordic Crime Fiction’ on May 3oth, 6pm at the Nordic Church and Cultural Centre.
