JK Rowling has been found out. She wrote a debut crime novel cloaked in the invisibility of the name Robert Galbraith. The book enjoyed mediocre sales. And then the invisibility ran out, and now the book has gone straight to the top of the book charts. Watch this video report from Channel 4 news here:-


Cinefringe is the film side of the Fringe. It aims to put the Fringe onto film and put the film back into the Fringe (if you see what we mean!) A little bit of a reaction to the Film Festival being moved off to June the whole programme is here.  And this is the trailer… of course you have to have a trailer. It’s a film festival!
