The chief is back: Chief Superintendent Gamache, that is, of the Sûreté de Québec. Missing drugs, an unruly cadet, the folks of Three Pines, and lots of snow feature in Louise Penny's latest, Kingdom of the Blind. Join the discussion in Genre Reading.

The next Book Club discussion is under way: Hogfather by Terry Pratchett. If you're a Pratchett fan, or want to try his work, get yourself a copy and join us in Genre Reading.

Not everything is about books though. Check out Stage & Screen for the TV adaptation of My Brilliant Friend, and the mini-series of Le Carre's The Little Drummer Girl. Have you been watching them? Do you have difficulty with My Brilliant Friend being in Italian?

If you're a writer, or would like to be, Research & Craft has discussions on all things to do with the craft of writing. Join in the Writing Exercises, request feedback on a snippet of your work in Critique Café, and join the Writers Workshop to exchange critiques of your work-in-progress. We have plenty of talented writers, including a number of published authors.

If you're a closet writer, too embarrassed to show your work to others, is the perfect place for you! Get feedback from experienced writers in a friendly environment - everyone had a first time, and lived to tell the tale...

The December exercise is up, and this month it's about ghosts, dark and stormy nights, and things that go bump in them. Come sit by the fire, ignore the roaring gale banging the shutters, and send a shiver down our spines!
