By Singing Light

Pretty much everything here originally appeared at my actual blog: By Singing Light. I particularly focus on upper middle-grade and young adult books. I also enjoy adult genre books, especially speculative fiction.

A Shilling for Candles - Josephine Tey, Robert Barnard One of my favorite Tey books, of which there are many. (March 2008)


Another Inspector Grant mystery, this one far less memorable than the others, in my opinion. Tey’s crankiness on certain subjects definitely comes out, and the story isn’t remarkable either for the mystery, or for Grant’s introspection. [July 2011]
