    I never read much as a kid and going to a massive comprehensive school there wasn't a lot of culture going on except for footy and porn..so I often find books I would have liked to read as a kid...

    Did he same Esq - wasn't allowed to buy books, and the library didn't always have what I wanted - then later in life - actually much later - I bought what I had wanted then.
    Felt like a child again

    Bee quest, by Dave Goulson, about searching for bumblebees, not like my friend Derek thought 'Bequest, is it a novel?'.

    One of the authors I saw at Hay festival, good stuff generally, a bit Lamarkian in his descriptions sometimes 'The young bee has these mandibles explicitly for ...'. Knepp, near Brighton, sounds interesting.

    I love that book. Have owned a copy since I was five or six years old.
    Am currently perusing Neon Golgotha, a collection of short works by Swedish author Michael Faun, and Operation Luna, the second of two pioneering urban fantasy novels by Poul Anderson (likely the basis for the movies Cast a Deadly Spell and Witch Hunt, which feature a similar magickal system if not the actual characters and situations). Both are smoothly written and feature piles of research.
    Faun's work is definitely MA. Anderson's has no graphic scenes but has a certain amount of innuendo. Both are recommended.
