A short, sharp summary this week...
Fancy a trip to a Sherlock Holmes Theme Park? And more Sherlock Holmes - this time in court.
Talking of Holmes, I have no idea why, but David Cameron thinks Conan
Doyle's going to help him in the fight against Scottish independence.
Iain Banks' final book is to come out in 2015. Here's an interview with Irvine Welsh about Filth.
Alexander McCall Smith talks about beginnings. And the jet-setting Smith will be in Australia in March.
A Q&A with Aline Templeton.
An article on how difficult it is for authors to get rid of fictional heroes, including Ian Rankin's Rebus and Philip Kerr's Bernie Gunther. And here's Ian Rankin being interviewed by Craig Ferguson.
Craig Russell on his characters' cars. And Val McDermid with her finger on the pulse.
Yes, I should say it is...
And, finally, Winnie The Pooh apparently lives up to his name. You might want to save this until after dinner.
Have a lovely weekend, dear Reader.
