The Hanging Tree

Due to an unfortunate visit today, I didn't get to do a write-up...but I'd still love some discussion:

Talk to me about The Hanging Tree here?

You know what to expect from me by now

Brief notes on 'Foxglove Summer' and links to some discussion with folks in other blogs:

6 x Peter Grant Icons, no spoilers

I saw that someone had fancast British actor Elliot Knight as Peter Grant of Rivers of London aka RoL fame; I really like this look for Peter as he describes himself at several points. Thus, icons:

Total Icon Count: 6

Teasers:

Find an overall of six (6) icons of Peter Grant over yonder in my blog!

conversations elsewhere

For those who aren't on Tumblr, there have been some really interesting conversations there lately on Lesley, HTD and how it works, aging backwards, the magical education system, Nightingale's social life, and all sorts of other things, and I thought I'd link them here for interest and/or continuing conversation here. There are Foxglove Summer spoilers in the discussion.

Lesley, the Faceless Man, Lady Ty, magical education
Nightingale and Peter's social lives, Frank Caffrey, HTD, backwards aging

Molly

As other folks maybe wonder about this too:

Do you think Molly can read and/or write?

Personally, I think so, otherwise, she may have problems ordering groceries to be delivered to the Folly, as she seems to never leave the house.

Foxglove Summer discussion

Since copies of the book are making their way out into the world (I got mine today!), here's a place for discussion and reactions. It's probably safe to assume that the comments will be full of spoilers.

Foxglove Summer teaser

So Ben Aaronovitch did an online thing talking about his books and reading the first chapter of Foxglove Summer today. Here's the whole conversation and reading:



Also, because I am enthusiastic, and the toddler took a long nap this afternoon, and I like having text, I made a transcript of the first chapter, which is behind the cut.

Chapter One of Foxglove Summer )

ETA: Aaronovitch has now put a correct version up on his blog, with a few extra paragraphs on the end as well. The accurate and longer version

Foxglove Summer speculation

So here's the official cover for Foxglove Summer! Also the blurb from Waterstones, and an awful lot of speculation and rambling from me. All behind a cut to avoid spoiling people.

Book five!

Something I spotted on Twitter a while back: Aaronovitch posted a picture of his current outline notes for book five. You can find it here. Tantalising rather than informative, but fun all the same.
