52. Cult author Will Carver (part 1) joins We'd Like A Word hosts Paul Waters & Stevyn Colgan to discuss the nature of evil, in front of a live audience inside the historic & beautiful Milton's Cottage in Chalfont St Giles, where John Milton dictated the epic poem, Paradise Lost. This event was for a select audience as part of the Chalfont St Giles & Jordans Literary Festival. Being there in person was great - and there was wine - but now you can eavesdrop on a very personal & existential session with searching questions from the audience. (And some "other" questions from Paul & Steve.) Will Carver's prolific output includes Girl 4, The Two, Dead Set & The Killer Inside (all part of the Detective Inspector January David series), and for Orenda Publishers, his current series - Good Samaritans, Nothing Important Happened Today, Hinton Hollow Death Trip (narrated by EVIL itself - or should that be, himself?), The Beresford, Psychopaths Anonymous & The Daves Next Door. Will writes crime fiction but always with a weird twist. Some fans of Will's books - well, Paul specifically - say they make them deeply uneasy, but they can't look away every time Will writes another disturbing and compelling thriller. You should read them to. You can get signed copies from Four Bear Books in Caversham, near Reading. The shop website is https://www.facebook.com/fourbearsbooksuk/about
You should also visit Milton's Cottage Museum in Chalfont St Giles. It's the only place still around where John Milton lived & worked. Very atmospheric. Listed building. The beautiful garden is listed too. Friendly & knowledgeable guides too. A good day out in a chocolate box English village - pond, ducks, green, half-timbered houses, v good deli/cafe.
The next episode of We'd Like A Word will be about Independent Bookshop week - with author Conn Iggulden.
