Congratulations to the Conservative party on at least another 20 years of uncontested government then. Bye then, NHS, BBC, etc etc

Brilliant idea - I can't think of a lovelier place to work, nor lovelier neighbours (that was my pitch, btw) https://t.co/dCvua9pLyD

Very late to this party, I know, but loving @amy_may's brilliant The Outrun & dreaming of wintry northern isles while sweating my face off.

Hello - it's been a busy summer with lots of book festivals (great to meet some of you at those!). I've also written this essay for Aeon magazine about the historical Bruno and why he's still a hero (if you don't know what happened to him, I'm afraid it does contain spoilers - though the books are a long way off the ending yet!). Hope you'll enjoy it. SJP View link
For anyone who dares to voice dangerous ideas and risk imprisonment or exile, Giordano Bruno remains a hero

On the eve of the EU referendum, I jotted down a few thoughts on my website about Bruno and what it means to be European... View link
Tomorrow, June 23, the UK will vote on whether or not to remain part of the European Union. Like everyone…

Well, here it is folks - Conspiracy is this week's Number One bestseller!! Thanks a million to all of you who've bought it and left your kind comments - really appreciate it. Now, if you could just persuade all your friends to buy it too, we could stay at the top for a second week (!) 😉 SJP.

Happy Birthday Bill! And Happy #WorldBookNight too. If you're giving or receiving copies of Treachery, I'd love to hear about it - please feel free to share your stories and pics here or over on Twitter - I'm @thestephmerritt.

It’s also World Book Night - a celebration of words and reading which has become a hugely popular annual event. It sees passionate volunteers give out hundreds of thousands of books in their communities to share their love of reading with people who don’t read regularly or own books.
