Simon into fox

A quick post (and sorry for the sparsity of updates this week) to say that I have an exciting piece of news to share - I have become a fox!


Yes, the lovely folk at Vulpes Libris have asked me to become one of their number - and I didn't even know I was under consideration!  You might have spotted the guest posts I've done for them over the past few months (on my favourite books, foxes in literature, and failing with poetry) and I've loved it, so I'm thrilled to be one of their number!  They'll be making mention of it soon, but I thought I'd give you guys advance notice.

In practical terms, I will probably still be posting around once a month there, but in a more official capacity.  Thanks for having me, foxes!

  1. Congratulations, Simon, that is great. You did give me a little heart attack, because I first read you would only be posting here once a month! I am glad to see that is not the case!

    Kind regards,

  12. Just now caught up with your Fox posts. Nicely done! Caught the reference to Laurence Fox and wonder if you are an Inspector Lewis fan?

    1. I've actually never seen it! Except seeing it being filmed - I've walked past Kevin Whateley and Laurence Fox quite a few times in Oxford.

Thanks so much for taking the time to comment - my favourite part of blogging is reading your comments!

Annoyingly, Blogger often messes up with comments... try refreshing, or commenting Anonymously (add your name in, though!) or using Firefox/Chrome instead of Internet Explorer. (Ctrl+c your comment first!)

Failing everything, email me: simondavidthomas[at]yahoo.co.uk - or just email me anyway :)

Thanks!
