This #PrivateEyeJuly #Podcast continues where the #magic is gone but the #monsters remain: #TheLastSmileinSunderCity by #LukeArnold

Good morning, my fellow creatives! During these cloudy, humid summer days, nothing strikes my fancy quite like a mystery.

Brilliant indie author and book reviewer S.J. Higbee recommended this book a while back, and at last I’ve found the perfect time to try it: The Last Smile in Sunder City by Luke Arnold.

Let’s take a sip together to taste the grit beneath the glitter…well, maybe that’s not the best metaphor here, but let’s, um….oh, let’s just try it.

Next week I’ll actually take a little break from fantasy for a traditional mystery. You’ll see why soon. x

Read on, share on, and write on, my friends!

    • Ha! I wouldn’t mind a bit of cold these days. The humidity here is thick enough to just coat the skin in sweat as one stands. Blech.
      It’s always a blessing to hear from you, my friend! xxxxx


    • Aw, thanks, Neill! I did enjoy a bit of school theater back in the day. Character voices are such fun, though I will say nothing–NOTHING–beats Bo reading Roald Dahl’s THE TWITS as a Pepperpot from Monty Python. Pure joy. πŸ™‚ xxxxxxx

    • Oooo, fascinating! Yes, I’m banking that Fetch may not be quite human-ish, so I’ll have to keep reading. There’s just something about “modern” other-worlds with a history that gets me every time. πŸ™‚ Oh, and I have CANTICLE! I want to use August as a sort of recommends month. My daughter Blondie’s already given me her list of things I HAVE to read, too. πŸ™‚

      • by the sounds of it a bit of a busy month- Canticle is good -although a but dated it has a universality. Definitely try Engine Summer, that is beautiful- although I am not too sure the first chapter is a gripper- more of a puzzler. Currently reading a People’s History of the United States (Howard Zinn). It is powerful, moving and depressing- its lessons inform all our civilisations and much of modern politics too. You would love it.
