Real Classic - - News -

REALCLAS­SIC has mys­te­ri­ously as­sem­bled it­self this month, be­cause Rowena Hosea­son and Frank West­worth of The Cos­mic Bike Co Ltd are on hol­i­day. Don’t worry; by the time you read this we’ll be back. Pos­si­bly. While RH and FW were gid­dily gadding about, Mike Baum­ber and the pro­duc­tion team at Horn­cas­tle worked ul­tra-ef­fi­ciently to de­sign the pages and get the magazine to press on time. Thanks for all the ex­tra ef­fort, folks.

THIS MONTH we’ve been read­ing THE IN­TER­ROGA­TOR (te­dious WW2‘thriller’ which bogged down in the sup­posed nos­tal­gia of ro­mance in the Blitz); A GRAIN OF TRUTH by Zyg­munt Miloszewski (bril­liant EuroCrime, set in small-town Poland); THE PYRA­MID by Hen­ning Mankell (short sto­ries telling Wal­lan­der’s early his­tory); ONE WAY by SJ Mor­den (sci-fi romp com­bin­ing The Mar­tian and Agatha Christie’s Ten Lit­tle In­di­ans), and THE THREE-BODY PROB­LEM by Cixin Liu (en­tirely baf­fling Chi­nese sci-fi story which could use­fully have been 75% shorter…).

MEAN­WHILE AT THE MOVIES we were flat-out as­ton­ished that THE SPY WHO DUMPED ME was ac­tu­ally jolly en­ter­tain­ing (be­cause it looked like the worst kind of rub­bish from the trailer); were mostly dis­ap­pointed by EQUAL­IZER 2 which fol­lowed the rules of se­quels in be­ing half as good as the first film; tried to like (but failed) an in­die thriller called 88 (which isn’t any­thing like ‘Me­mento meets Kill Bill’, no, not at all), and are still ut­terly gripped by Grimm…
