Found this funny.

There have been some very good things in the New Yorker lately (who knew?). Adam Gopnik on geography and history, and John Cassidy on the useful effort George Osbourne is putting into showing the world that austerity economics is just as bad an idea as almost all economists think it is, however satisfying headlines like 'tighten our belts' and 'live within our means' are to people who have no idea of what it is like to have to seriously decide whether or not they can eat or heat their houses.

As a public service announcement: Robert Hudson completists who have read The Kilburn Social Club and Warhorses of Letters, and who have pre-ordered The Dazzle must just be satisfied that they can do no more. Don't go buying Beyond the Dragon Temple or The Christian Writer's Manual of Style or Memorials of a Warwickshire Parish. Ok, maybe buy Beyond the Dragon Temple, but don't do it because I wrote it.
