'Thought for a while about starting a news thread, so here it is. I'll post snippets I think may be of interest, and I look forward to reading posts from anyone who wants to do the same. Comments are also welcome of course.

Today's News is Dickens' 201st birthday. Happy birthday Charles, wherever you are.

("...I'll be in rome a few days next week..." mentioned the goblin, not sure of what type of news was expected now, adding "...I don't know if they have WIFI there, but if they do I'll post about my progress...")

("...well if not WIFI, I'll settle for some hot running water for a deep bath and real flushing toilets instead..." replied the goblin, adding "...and chamonix here today is minus -14c, where my mind still is somewhat suffering from a cold and feels like it's a brain barely floating upon the mass of mucus around it, so you can see now how my persona faces these wretched obstacles humans in order to feed the slot here, yet someone has to carry the mantle of forum readership I suppose...", at which point the goblin prudently wrote out a note reading dear humans if my trip to rome turns out the way I think it will I leave my brain to medicine, remembering that when in rome one does as the romans and/or gets done in by them too)

New Today

The British Library has added six historic manuscripts, including Beowulf and Leonardo's Notebook, to its online collection. If you can bear the juvenile blogger the BL Medieval Manuscripts blog has more information and links.

Writer's Block? This could be the answer. Writer's Digest are offering a free download of their Writing Prompt Boot Camp. The idea is to get you to subscribe to other stuff of course, but you might find an idea or two in there.

The news

“...tinky winky and laa laa to file for devoice, read all about it...” shouts the voice as the goblin passes the newsagent, instinctively the goblin hands the money to the man and reads yes folks, sordid photos of tinky and dispsy in very compromising positions leave viewers in little doubt about the standard of british children's television today, as the photographer, who has agreed to this interview on the sole condition that his identity remain withheld, said “...well I had planned to take photos of the brighton tattoo seeing that there would a regiment of the queens first morris dancers, and with david camaron as punch in the star studied cast of the houses of paliament pantomine, not to mention those royal donkey rides then, when I just thought that I'd better try out my new canon Eos5D mk2 camera, the one splashed out nearly £2,000 pounds on, to get the hang of it, so cycling about a bit, I found a nice spot and snapped away before tucking into some sandwiches and a thermos of tea, where it was only later when I looked at the pictures again that I then realized the scoop I actually had, and that maybe with the money I'd get I might be able to buy a new pair of bicycle clips, a stick of rock and/or some thermal undies...”, and remember folks, you read it first here, at which point the goblin wondered it this photographer was someone he knew

The Assyrian came down like the wolf on the fold,
And his cohorts were gleaming in purple and gold;
And the sheen of their spears was like stars on the sea,
When the blue wave rolls nightly on deep Galilee.
Thus did Lord Byron describe the Destruction of Sennacherib, but now the Assyrians themselves are on the verge of extinction, or at least their language is. One of the last strongholds of Aramaic, the tongue of the Assyrians and once the 'lingua franca' of the Middle East, is the North Side of Chicago. It's here that Geoffrey Khan of Cambridge University is recording the dying 'language of Jesus' for posterity. (Smithsonian Magazine)

Elsewhere, the Independent's columnist thinks that poetry slams are killing poetry and likens them to a 'Darwinian Death Match' - whatever that is.

Oh yes, I also heard, and I kid you not, that scientists have found a previously undiscovered language. I'm now waiting for them to find the undiscovered literature. (Smithsonian Magazine)

In Judaism, the Kaddish--most people have heard of the Mourner's Kaddish, but the Kaddish is broader than that and we use it throughout our services--is in Aramaic, so I can recite at least that much of the language! We also use Aramaic in a few other places in our services and holidays.

I hope, though, that Aramaic survives as a living tongue.

("...ours is to witness what the news won't admit..." went the goblin suspecting that things would get worst still, saying "...and besides, why does ourdearmedia look the other way each time, perhaps because they are not in the business of giving us the news for their lame distraction instead, their agenda then, where apart the obvious tectonic awakening today with all sorts of climatic happenings, together with the likelihood that mali will be a reenactment of the vietnam war with the same old french colonialists pulling in UN again for their lost cause of a hand picked democracy at the end of a gun barrel, etc., not to mention this global fiscal fiasco of a rampant currency war in a race to the bottom, oh but no, ourdearmedia is telling us that we're suppose to actually care about is why the pope resigned indeed, I mean who cares then, perhaps he too had had enough of their agenda...", in fact, the goblin was not a writer, any more than he was a journalist neither, but what he was outspoken, where forumland just meant that one could be outspoken, in that one could voice what ourdearmedia was covering up, no wonder then why established media was losing ground to the internet here)

If you like reading about writing then this could be for you. Jon Gilbert's new book 'IAN FLEMING' is not a biography of the great man but a bibliography of his works. Gilbert takes us through the manuscripts, proofs and production changes of Fleming's novels. (Times Literary Supplement)

Is writing torture? Phillip Roth seems to think so, according to Avi Steinberg writing in the New Yorker, while Elizabeth Gilbert say's it's "fucking great". Perhaps they're both right?

The British Library celebrates 'Pancake Day' by offering us an extract from Thomas Dawson's 1585 recipe book 'The Good Huswifes Jewell'. If you can make any sense of it you could cook yourself up some authentic Elizabethan pancakes - enjoy.

The 'Workers Solidarity Movement' of Ireland has announced the 8th Dublin Anarchist Book Fair, to be held on 6th April 2013 at Liberty Hall. Don't miss it folks.

In the Writer Magazine, Phillip Lopate discusses his book 'To Show and To Tell: The Craft of Literary Nonfiction'.

To celebrate Charles Darwin's 204th birthday, which actually was yesterday, the British Library remind us that they have a first edition of On the Origin of Species, perhaps the most influential book ever published.

Had enough of Harry Potter yet? If not you might be interested to know that all seven novels will be re-issued in the US with new covers this September.

Yes, one's almost inclined to the suspicion that Henry Tudor had him buried in a future car park as a mark of disrespect. That can't be right, can it?

Ian Cobain, the guy who revealed how Britain tortured the Nazis, is at it again. In his latest book, Cruel Britannia, he spills the beans on torture methods used by the British from WWII up to the present day. Liverpudlian Cobain is at pains to convince us that British torture was something more than overzealous individuals overstepping their authority, but doesn’t quite succeed according to Calder Walton writing in the Times Literary Supplement.

Sunday Times book reviewer Camilla Long has won Omnivore’s ‘Hatchet Job of the Year’ for her review of Rachel Cusk's Aftermath: On Marriage and Separation. Pictures from Omnivore.

In Chile they're going to dig up Pablo Neruda, the nation's greatest poet, to see if Pinochet had him murdered. (Time Magazine Newsfeed)

If you're a fan of crime fiction then you'll be interested to know that Europa Editions is launching a new imprint World Noir. Michael Reynolds, Europa editor-in-chief, explains why this is not just more of the same. (Publisher's Weekly)

Why are there so few foreign translations on our bookshelves? (Hasn't that got something to do with the enormous volume of English literature?) Anyway, Joanna Zgadzaj and Nancy Roberts of Stork Press think we should have more translated stuff. (Publishing Perspectives)

Ploughshares Magazine has advice on getting your book out of the slush-pile.

Double Man Booker prize winner Hilary Mantel has been slated by the British press over remarks she made in a recent lecture. Criticising Kate Middleton, however gently, was always going to make Hilary a target for the tabloids - but has she been misrepresented? You can read, or listen to, the entire lecture here and make up your own mind. (London Review of Books)

Writers of historical drama must tread a careful path between fact and dramatisation. Jocelyn Noveck asks "how much fiction is OK?" (Associated Press)

You've gotta try this Oscars literary quiz in the LA Times. If you get all ten answers right (without cheating) pop a post on this thread and let us know; I only got five out of ten.

Staying on the Oscars, it's noteworthy that Argo won both best film and best adapted screenplay. I haven't read the book yet, but I'm going to.

Anna Baddeley describes self publishing as a revolution for writers but says "To get noticed, you either need to be very lucky or spend every waking hour manically self‑promoting." (Guardian)

Which means that Chuck Sambuchino's advice on How to Publicize Your Book may come in useful.
