Grumpy Old Man

By Maurice1948

A winning combination

It's not often I find myself unprepared with no Blip ready, but I came in from an afternoon outside with nothing! I'd been repairing the deck and cutting back ferns down at the roadside and when I came in at 5pm I had to think quickly.

So here are a few books of one of my favourite crime authors. Edward Marston, who real name is Keith Miles, also writes under the pseudonyms of Martin Inigo and Conrad Allen. What would you choose if you had to invent a nom de plume? He has written several series of books, many set in times gone by - the First World War, for example. The Railway Detective series, my favourite, is set in the mid1800s and has some wonderful characters - there are a few of the series that I don't have yet , but I'm in the middle of reading again those that I do. Anything with steam trains and detectives is fine by me!

Quote of the Day:

Fergus Henderson - "I think Isambard Kingdom Brunel would be a good chap to have supper with. Anyone who builds a railway and then builds a steamship when he gets to Bristol and can't go any further must be a good chap."
