Wonderous Radish

Rural WTF

It is 20 minutes to 1am in the morning, and someone is employing a tractor, lights and a bizarre swooshing thing on the field opposite my house.    I think it may be muckspreading.   As the valley is otherwise completely silent at this hour, the noise, which would normally be unnoticeable, is quite striking.  It sounds like he is energetically circulating a number of angry foxes in a large metal barrel.

WHY  would anyone be muckspreading at 12:40am?  WHY? 

At least he's unlikely to be very long about it.  It's not a big field.  Which just increases the mystery of the 'WHY AT 12:40am?' question by an order of magnitude.

About Book Publishing

I thought this blog post by Jane Alexander about publishers and the market for books (fiction primarily I think) might be of interest to some of the people on my flist who are in the process of producing books, and for that matter to those of us that buy them.

(I quite like Jane, I came across her on Twitter and blagged a promotional Harry Potter Dobby toy off her, which Oldies Club then sold very profitably on Ebay. :-))
