Goat Music Review

I was delighted a couple of days ago to stumble across a review of Goat Music, my reinvention of the tale of Apollo and Marsyas, over on The Letterpress Project.

“The gods are largely spiteful, arbitrary, self-centred and generally driven by shabby motives…This is indeed a story of incautious hubris but in Buckingham’s hands its also a tale of the arbitrariness of power.”

The review, by Terry Potter, is also mirrored over on the Everybody’s Reviewing blog.

Chance Pieces on Creative Transformations Asia Blog

A few weeks back Michael Keane, who is a Professor of Chinese Media at Curtin University and who runs the Digital China Lab, wrote a very generous review of my Sixty-Four Chance Pieces over on the Creative Transformations Asia blog. Here’s an extract.

There is so much in the book to savour if you like a taste of magic realism mixed with observations about change and the passing of time. History, scholarship and finely honed literary skills combine to produce a minor masterpiece. A book about philosophy, adventure, discovery, about life and death, yin and yang, it’s also about creative transformations.
