On a dark and blustery night, with nary a Christmas twinkle to be seen, our readers came out in force for an superbly rejuvenating Readers’ Salon (the first of the year).
There were some tremendous recommendations from some new faces and regulars, plus a spirited discussion on various topics, including (but not limited to) the size of Africa, the dispiriting effect of small town support for their local sports teams, Irish historical accuracy from British correspondents and the annoyance of writing supplementary novels in the footnotes.
Enjoy our readers’ excellent selections below, all available either within Golden Hare or upon order!
