I read Red Light, the third in the Katie Maguire series by Graham Masterton a few short months back but have only just got around to reviewing it after pretty much giving up with what I have been reading after it and still have on my sideboard now. More on that in a later review […]

Okay, first up I have never seen the play of An Inspector Calls and from what I can remember never studied it at school sadly, instead having to pick through the well eaten corpse of Shakespeare and Dickens, so when I saw this advertised on the BBC a few days ago I thought I would […]
