Just a quick explanation – this is my 100th post on my blog. It’s been running now for about 10 months and seems to be doing a wonderful job of curing my reader’s block. One of the recent discoveries of mine is the huge back catalogue of Dr Paul Doherty aka PC Doherty aka Paul Harding aka Michael Clynes aka some other names as well, so in order to have a minor 100th post celebration, I’m declaring this week on my blog “Paul Doherty Week”!
Admittedly this is partly due to the huge pile of unread books of his that I seem to have recently acquired, but also because I do consider him my primary discovery from my blog so far. A thank you to Sergio, by the way, for pointing me in the right direction with the recommendation of The House of the Red Slayer, a review of which will be appearing in two days time.
So for the next week, you will hopefully be getting one review per day of Dr Doherty’s work – starting with Crown in Darkness, the second Hugh Corbett book, and then alternating in and out of the series, visiting Ancient Rome, Brother Athelstan and Roger Shallot along the way. There will also be a special review of An Ancient Evil, one of the Canterbury Tales, but that won’t be appearing here, exactly…
Hope you enjoy the reviews – if you do, go out and harangue your bookshop until they stock Dr Doherty’s books. It does work!!! And I promise, I’ll take a bit of a break when the week is out… possibly.
