Churchill’s Funeral: The End of Empire by Patrick Bishop

On 30 January 1965, the world said farewell to Sir Winston Churchill in a ceremony of the grandest scale, full of pageantry, pomp and grandeur; a historical event to honour a man who had shaped history. But Britain was saying goodbye to an era, as well as a leader. The empire was deteriorating, and with it went the confidence, power, wealth and cultural certainties that underpinned it. Would Churchill recognise the...

Scandals, Intrigues, Family Feuds, Murders, Hatred, Love and Envy: Episode 12

Following on from the 11th instalment in Joy Martin’s blog series, available to read here: The men and women interviewed for Twelve Shades of Black were – mostly – slow to talk at first.  But gradually they grew less shy and spoke to me about their lives.  The priest, Father Samson Kataka, faced with witchcraft in his church.  Sarah Mashele, the inyanga, whose clients paid her on HP for charms they hoped would cure their ills.  Ephraim Tshabalala, the millionaire who couldn’t own a house, or land.  Marjory, the shebeen queen, who went to church on Sunday mornings and not drink alcohol.  The teacher, artist, policeman, actress; the maid, the playwright and the beauty queen. As they relaxed with me I began to feel at ease when I went into the townships, particularly in Soweto.  It was bleak and ugly – yes: devoid of flowers and plants and trees with endless […]

Researching 13th Century China

By Karen Warren It was quite a challenge for me to write a novel about the Mongol Empire. I’d come across the story of the legendary explorer Marco Polo escorting a Mongol princess by sea from China to Persia, and I knew that I had to write about it. But I knew nothing about the Mongols, 13th century China, or medieval ships. I needed to do some research! Fortunately, history and travel are my twin passions (when I’m not writing fiction, I’m working on my travel blog). I started by reading everything I could find about the Mongol Empire and medieval travel – visiting the British Library and scouring charity shops for lesser known titles. There was practical research too. I wanted to see some of the places I was writing about and to find out what it was like to travel across the ocean, so I signed up for […]

The Custom of the Sea, by Neil Hanson

Four starving men adrift in a dinghy for 19 days. Should all die together, or should one be sacrificed to save the rest? Captain Tom Dudley faced that cruel dilemma in 1884. His decision – and his honesty about it – made headlines around the world and led to a trial that split Victorian Britain in two, ranging the establishment and ‘polite society’ against the entire working class. A devout Christian, Dudley refused to lie about or conceal what he had done. His voluntary confession was the only evidence against the men. The Custom of the Sea required starving sailors to draw lots to decide whom should be killed and eaten. It was so deeply ingrained and so frequently used that it was accepted without question by seamen – the dead boy’s own brother publicly exonerated his killers. Desperate to secure the conviction that would outlaw the Custom of the […]

Deadly Return by Daniel Bjork

The Evil One, Henry Chase, the man who drowned his daughter, slit his wife’s throat, and murdered a half dozen more was in an unmarked grave, killed by his own son.  But wait!  His daughter and wife have disappeared from their coffins in Sleepy Hollow cemetery Concord, Massachusetts.  Doubtless some drunk boys stole them as a village prank, or so thought the local sheriff.  But retired doctor Josiah Bartlett smelled a rat.  Henry Chase’s body was not in an unmarked Concord grave and then the skulls of his daughter and wife were found hanging from village porches.  Could it be that Chase was still alive?  Impossible.  The doctor, the sheriff, and Chases’ son had identified the body.  The curse of Henry Chase was over.  Yet once before, after drowning his daughter and shooting himself in Boston in 1852, the sheriff had mistakenly identified Chase’s body.  Could it be that The […]

A Great and Godly Adventure by Godfrey Hodgson

The United States has many public holidays, but two of them are supreme in Americans’ affection: Independence Day (July 4), and Thanksgiving, which, since 1941, is celebrated on the fourth Thursday in November.  Their mood is very different. July 4 is a feast of noisy patriotism, with flags and marching bands and patriotic oratory. Thanksgiving is a quiet time for families and closest friends to get together over a traditional meal of turkey, often served with cranberry sauce and followed by pumpkin pie, and give thanks for America’s peace and prosperity. For many it has come to celebrate specially immigrants and their contribution to American life. In recent years it has been associated with the beginning of the winter shopping season, building up to the mercantile climax of Christmas, and for many with watching American football games on television. Both high schools and colleges play their fiercest rivals on Thanksgiving […]

Murder in Ancient Rome

By Mark Knowles Looking at how various authors’ plots were first conceived within this blog makes for very interesting reading. I remember mine vividly. I was a relatively inexperienced supervisor stood half frozen on a crime scene one morning by a canal in central London. I was discussing with another officer how such scenes might have been handled in early Victorian times, when The Metropolitan Police was still in its infancy. He told me a story (possibly an urban myth) about a constable who had once prodded a body he had found to the other side of a canal so that it entered another borough’s jurisdiction. I can only assume that this officer had a severe aversion to paperwork! This got me thinking about how – or indeed if – murders were dealt with in Ancient Rome by the city authorities. ‘vestigia‘ means ‘footprints’ or ‘traces’ in Latin, from where […]
