Magnificent Music

I've known Karin Leitner, the distinguished Austrian flautist for some time now, but somehow never managed to hear her play in a live performance... until last night. I managed to get along to a recital partnered with the Irish harpist Anne Marie O'Farrell largely featuring the music of O'Carolan. It was, simply, magnificent. Some of Karin's CDs are available from Apple Itunes and and she's well worth a search on YouTube.

Comments on Faerie Lord

Faerie Lord was published in the States on St Stephen's Day (U.K. early next month: Feb 2008) and I'm delighted to say I came home from a short Christmas break to find lots of emails from readers who, so far, have liked it. One of them, Iya, asked me to make a special post so people could discuss the book. Sounded like a good idea, so, Iya, this is the post you asked for. I promise I'll respond to comments as quickly as possible.
