A Guest Post from Tom Abba on The King in Yellow
Gollancz is delighted to welcome guest blogger, Tom Abba to the blog. Tom Abba is a specialist in narrative theory and practice, working within interactive media, and across film and television. Today, Tom shares some insight into The King in Yellow, HBO’s True Detective, digital books and beyond. You can find out more about Tom on his website.

The Three Musketeers
I’ve always adored The Three Musketeers. As a book, an animation (Muskehounds are already ready . . .), a film (the Disney bratpack version has a special place in my heart, because it’s wonderful). . . and now it’s a TV series. Of course, I love it. For me, this is perfect Sunday night viewing. […]
