Currently I am reading The Amazing Dr. Darwin : The Adventures of Charles Darwin's Grandfather a book of short stories by Charles Sheffield.
Sheffield obviously had great respect for his subject and that respect shines through in his writing. Each of the stories I have read so far have been well crafted and, as with any good story, they make you feel like you are really there. The setting in the stories, 18th century Britain, often evokes a wistful almost nostalgic feeling in me and it does not fail to do so here.
I will write more about this and other books in this blog, as the post title might imply it is my intention to post regularly on the books that I am reading.
