My Nephew Joel Buttle's 21st Birthday Party was held last night at Anna and Finlay Thompson's house. After a speeches and boiled Scallop (chocolate) birthday cake there was a performance from a fantastic band whose name I do not know but whose presence at the party was a secret for fear of the party becoming unduly enticing to their legions of fans!

In August this year Samantha Shannon's debut dystopic immersive fantasy novel The Bone Season was published by Bloomsbury Press- the publishers of the Harry Potter Series.

By November when I spoke to the young author the book had been translated into 28 languages and 20th Century Fox had signed on with Andy Serkis's Imaginarium Studios to make a movie version of the book.

I was hugely honoured to conduct this email interview with Buddhist philosopher and peace builder Daisaku Ikeda over the New Year. The simplicity and clarity of his  views on the role of human dignity, passive violence, religious cooperation, the internet and the water hemisphere in the quest for global harmony are inspiring and hopeful. I hope others optimism in the future is buoyed by his answers as much as mine has been.
