We are about to hit the official "dog days" of August. For me, that means some minor schedule shifts for this blog - hopefully nothing to cause any of you dismay.
The main change, at the moment, is that next week's review and podcast, normally sent out on Mondays, will be sent out two days early, on Saturday, August 3. (It will be a review of Hamlet, Revenge!, by Michael Innes, so please do come back to learn more.) The next week's review will be back on the regular schedule, appearing on Monday, August 12.
As I'll be in and out this month, working on a few points of interest as well as my summer tan, I may be a bit slow in responding to your comments. Have no fear - I'll see them all ASAP and will respond. There, I'll bet that makes you sleep better at night, doesn't it?
Anyway, if you have anything interesting you're planning to do in August, I hope you'll enjoy it - and come back refreshed. That's part of my own plan.
