The Submarine, March 2009

The new edition of the Library magazine, The Submarine, has just been published (after a period off the news-stands - the Editor Tom McConville compares it to the Asgard, saying that it seemed to have 'struck an unidentified semi-submerged object', but is now 'eminently seaworthy' again).

It will be fully distributed at the start of next term. Again, it's an interesting and eclectic mix, including:-
  • A first in the form of a recipe from Hal Downer (chicken, rosemary, tomatoes ...)
  • Reviews by Molly Dunne of Jenny Valentine's Broken Soup, and by Emma Moore of Stephenie Meyer's Twilight,
  • Richard Brett's review of The Thieves of Ostia by Caroline Lawrence,
  • A recommendation of Nicholas Gage's A Place for Us, by our Chaplain, Rev Michael Heaney,
  • David Sowby's comments on Pierre Berton's Klondike,
  • and two features which have already appeared here - Milo Reddaway's short story 'Regal Surprise at Tibradden' and John Fanagan's piece on Richard Yates.
The Editor thanks particularly Sebastian Stephenson for his work in laying out and designing the magazine. Read it above via Issuu. Click on the pages for a larger view, scroll through by using the arrows, and click again for a close-up.
