The February Compulsive Reader newsletter has now gone out.  As always the newsletter has 10 fresh links to reviews and author interviews including an exclusive, in-depth chat with the amazing Kaz Cooke, reviews of the poetry books Glasshouses by Stuart Barnes and Appalachian Fall by Jennifer Maiden (which I’ll be launching in Newcastle on the 13th of Feb at Maclean’s Books - you’re invited to join us - it’s free and wine and cheese provided), great new fiction like Eye of the Moon by Ivan Obolensky, as well as a round-up of literary news around the globe, another great book giveaway, and more.  If you’re a subscriber, it should already be in your in-box (or check your spam folder and then white list me!).  Or you can grab a copy here:
