Given the way things work in these parts I tend not to buy much non-fiction these days, and what I do buy often mends up sitting on the shelves for reference purposes or set aside to be read at some indeterminate point  down the track rather than devoured in the immediate future.

Most of what’s there relates to the Interesting Times project or is related to Hughesy’s listening habits, and given the fact that the first of those two items has been shelved for a while until I can get the website transfer and assorted fiction projects sorted out and much of the second is something I’ll get around to some day, this section of the site probably isn’t going to be undergoing a radical expansion any time soon.
