The Life and Times of Algernon Swift is out today!

and, as you can see, Mavis and the Reverend Hawker have already got their copies.

As well as being an ordinary sensible sort of book that can be seen around town in a jacket, and which, when it takes its rest, does so under the covers, The Life and Times of Algernon Swift is also available as an e-book for one’s Kindle.

Hard as it is to imagine anyone as stalwartly stuck-in-the-mud, as retrospectively-fixated as Algernon engaging with the tidal wash of digital media, here he can be seen struggling to keep up to date with the technology:

Continuing this unwonted technological excursion, here I am (via BBC iplayer) talking to BBC Radio Gloucestershire’s Nicky Price about the book, and also choosing some records and being unnecessarily pedantic about The Clash.
(3 weeks remaining to listen)
while here I am giving a brief introduction to the book on Head of Zeus’s YouTube channel (with some dancing girls in the background).

I’ll be also signing copies at Stroud Booskhop on 11th February from 11am, and at the Suffolk Anthology Bookshop in Cheltenham on 25th February, also from 11am.
