Taking arms against a sea of troubles…………..

Since I started writing this blog, the subject I've written about most often seems to have been the imbalance between men and women in book reviews and journalism.

So it's very exciting to find that somebody is doing something about it.

There is a  brand new online magazine called BOOKOXYGEN which “has a mission to help correct the imbalance in book journalism which sees some sixty percent of literary coverage written by men and devoted to male writers. At bookoxygen, the coverage is weighted sixty percent or more in favour of women writers and critics.”

On its site, writing and writers,  in particular novels and novelists will be celebrated. The first issue has just launched. (

Wish it luck!
