Now at the top of my reading list, the new Bronte juvenile ImagiNations in lively graphic novel form – Glass Town by Isabel Greenberg:

There is more about the author here and sample pages on her website:

This book is all very useful and inspiring for my ongoing Bronte inspired ImagiNations game. I am currently about halfway through this pleasingly hefty full colour hardback graphic novel:

  1. I am glad you have some diverting reading on the go. Funnily enough I was in Glasgow a few weeks ago ,saw it in a bookshop and had intended mentioning it to you but forgot. I thought it was well produced and looked interesting. I am looking forward to seeing more of your Bronte Inspired gaming.


  2. Found it thru my library on the Hoopla app. The illustration and text is sketchy and not suited to a tablet, unfortunately. The style reminds me very much of the webcomic Hark! A Vagrant.


    1. Glad
      You tracked it down. I like the style, others may not, and I look forward to rereading it again in the next few days. I shall have to keep an eye out for Hark A Vagrant. My local library has free digital subscriptions to graphic novels, comics, magazines (no modelling hobbies) and ebooks or audiobooks. Good for a Lockdown.


      1. I’ve found two wargaming-related books on Hoopla so far – One-Hour Wargames by Neil Thomas, and a history of toy soldiers by Luigi Toiati. Several of Thomas’ books are available for Kindle, but sadly not all – I am intrigued by his book on wargaming Europe 1815-1878, as that covers a lot of ground I’m unfamiliar with.


      2. Neil Thomas’ One Hour Wargames is a modern classic, a 21st Century Featherstone? It is valued I think by many more for the Scenarios than his simplified rules. It is already shortened to OHW, one sign of its rapid acceptance.

        I have not read his others but find I OHW a good starter set for a couple of boxes of plastic figures and simple terrain. A good complement to Stuart Asquith and Charles Grant’s simple rules and scenarios books.

        The Toiati book: I have read mixed reviews – I would be interested to see what you think.
