This is about as close to the outdoors as I'm willing to get during this stifling heat wave, at least during the daytime.
Robin Furth, the author of the Dark Tower Concordance & co-author of Marvel's Dark Tower comics, has written a review of 'Five Wounds' for "Gramarye: The Journal of the Sussex Centre for Folklore, Fairy Tales and Fantasy".
"erudite, gruesome, and self-consciously postmodern"
Robin Furth's very in-depth review of Five Wounds is both constructively critical and encouraging.
'Gramarye' is edited by Prof. Bill Gray, Professor of Literary History and Hermeneutics at the University of Chichester.

Sketches of wild flowers from the outskirts of Barcelona, catching the spring sun rays. I had the pleasure whilst sketching to see a longhorn moth (below), which I made a few attempts to sketch, but it resulted to small and swift to capture, so here is a photo from wikipedia.
