A local fair for local people

I haven't been thinking much about the London Book Fair, even though it's next week, because my role tends to be less to do with moving and/or shaking and more in the line of holding people's coats. But it has been drawn to my attention that with no flights entering British airspace recently there might be a marked shortage of foreign visitors to the fair. Presumably it will be a strangely quiet, strange provincial LBF. I think we'll still be able to do all the things we planned to, but what about you? Is this a disaster?


The SnowBlog is one of the oldest publishing blogs, started in 2003, and it's been through various content management systems over the years. A 2005 techno-blunder meant we lost the early years, but the archives you're reading now go all the way back to 2005.

Many of the older posts in our blog archive suffer from link rot. Apologies if you see missing links and images: let us know if you'd like us to find any in particular.
