It's that Christmasy time of year again.

More On Book Titles...


It occurred to me yesterday, thinking about what I said in my last entry here, that I can illustrate the kind of situation that authors and publishers encounter all the time, when it comes to the names and titles of books.

Exercising privilege: Blogs, Tweets and Podcasts

Today marks the three-months-to-the-day date since I went “under the knife” to remove a tumour from the upper lobe of my left lung on November 30th last year. Hallelujah! Three months down and I’m feeling better—stronger, healthier and more optimistic—every day.

Camulod Goes to Britain: Part One

There’s an eight-hour time difference between London and British Columbia, and that makes it inconveniently difficult to pick up the phone and make a spontaneous call, in either direction, during business hours.

Does anyone here read/write/speak Brazilian Portuguese?

That's not a silly question, nor is it an idle one.

UPDATE on U.K. status of things to come...
