On the BBC 4 program Open Book, host Chris Power is joined by writers Lavie Tidhar, Margie Orford, and Andrew Harding for “The Ethics of Writing Crime,” where they discussed the ethical questions authors confront as they research and write about crime.

Following a retrospective reading of Peter S. Beagle’s The Last Unicorn, Judith Tarr on Tor.com praises the classic.

Many favorite books of one’s youth don’t make it intact into one’s maturity. For me The Last Unicorn not only survived, it showed itself to be even more wonderful than I had remembered. As a young reader I loved the words and the story and the characters. As an older reader and writer of my own books, I have a much clearer sense of what it takes to write a book of such beauty and power. It is wonderful in the true, old, magical sense: full of wonders. Marvelous. Immortal, like the unicorn herself.
