Macmillan reissuing Carroll to mark Alice’s 150th anniversary
Carroll’s Alice novels were a comparatively early success for Macmillan, with Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland published only 22 years after the company’s 1843 foundation and before the similarly epochal likes of Rudyard Kipling, Alfred Tennyson and Thomas Hardy. That book has seen over 100 editions printed in its 150 years. Despite the best efforts of Tim Burton, no one has yet been able to kill it.
He was chief hack and music editor of webzine Brazen from 2006 to 2010, and hosted Left of the Dial on Subcity Radio from 2008 to 2011.
He can be heard semi-regularly on the podcast of Scottish cultural blog Scots Whay Hae ('20th best website in Scotland!' - The List), and in 2011 founded Seen Your Video, a film and music podcast and blog based in Glasgow. He has a Masters degree in Scottish Literature from the University of Glasgow that will never have any practical application. You are on a hiding to nothing if you follow him on Twitter expecting any kind of hot publishing scoop.
