New Books: The Art Of Satire?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on April 2, 2015 in Publishing |

Whilst it may be reasonably quiet on the Internet front it certainly isn’t so behind the scenes, and this is one of those times when I am relieved to be working with other people to keep my small publishing venture alive and kicking. My co-director has laid a new proposition – in the form of […]

Review: Am Meer Damals

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 1, 2014 in Articles and Reviews |

Where do you go when it’s time for a relaxing, sun-soaked vacation? For many, those who don’t want to travel too far, use their dollars rather than exchanging for foreign cash, and not leave America somewhere like Mexico or even Belize probably comes as a possible choice. Long, clean beaches, few tourists, but with a […]

Review: The Orphan Master’s Son

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on September 26, 2014 in Articles and Reviews |

It’s always the little people who suffer, not those of smaller stature, but the ordinary folk, the workers, those who keep a country functioning by their hard work and dedication in the face of all odds. Within those masses there are those who stand out, and those who are singled out for better, or for […]

Tim Parks’ References, Please: A Reply

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on September 16, 2014 in Publishing |

The Internet is good for many things, but it should never be considered an adequate substitute for research, for reading and for learning from – where possible – original sources. It is a mass, if not a mess, of thoughts, learning, quotation and misquotation, false paths and short-cuts used by students all over the world […]

Review: Straight White Male

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 18, 2014 in Articles and Reviews |

The life of a bestselling author is an easy one: rest on your laurels cashing in on the success of your last work and, occasionally, write something new. The real life of a bestselling author is something completely different: not so much resting as searching for a new work which will hold that level of […]

Review: Essay Oder Stirb

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 2, 2014 in Articles and Reviews |

It is amazing how few people sit down and think. I mean really think, consider the big and the small things in life and not just what is happening to them, why, and why life is so unfair, but moving events and powers of our modern world. People in general no longer seem to look […]

If I Can Criticize Others

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on July 30, 2014 in Publishing |

Time, I think, to do a little self promotion. The thing is, I write reviews. I take the works of other people and criticize them, rip their writing or editing or spelling to pieces. Sometimes the books I receive to review are good, sometimes I am incapable of reading through the whole thing. As a […]

Review: Cicero Orations

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on July 1, 2014 in Articles and Reviews |

It is difficult to get a real grip on history, on the times that have gone before us, by just reading through a modern analysis of what happened, who was involved and what, if any, the repercussions of a particular action were. Biographies of famous figures, accounts of battles, famous crimes and trials, political landmarks […]

Review: By Its Cover

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on April 12, 2014 in Articles and Reviews |

Anyone who hasn’t come across Donna Leon yet, and I cannot imagine that there are many who have not – is definitely missing out on good crime stories. It is one thing to look through photographic books in Venice, with its beautiful architecture and long, well documented history, quite another to read works by someone […]

A Few More Days

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on February 16, 2014 in Publishing |

It seems like an absolute age since I first wrote my short story The Temptation of Words and uploaded it to Amazon. In the meantime Amazon have decided not to accept it any more, although I see that it is still there, because we haven’t managed to get our tax indemnity from the IRS yet. […]
