In Memoriam Peter Dickinson

2324

Peter Dickinson the author of around 60 books, has died at the age of 88. He is a children’s book author, fantasist and mystery writer.

 

I read The Changes years ago, and then later on read EvaAK and Tulku,  before discovering some of his adult mysteries.  He has such a fluent imagination. HE’s one of those writers who keeps working year after year, and none of the books I have read have not been worth reading.

Jessica SageMy friend, Jessica Sage, who welcomed me into the Department of English Literature graduate programme at Reading, has published an good article on the new cover for C&tCF. Not only does the cover, seem to be for the wrong book Valley of the Dolls and Lolita were both guesses, but it just out creeps the adult Dahl stories, let alone his kids ones.
