Shot's website. He's also a friend of Len Deighton himself and reader of his works.
Like the Deighton Dossier, Shots has a separate blog - Shotsmag Confidential. Up on the blog recently Mike has written an appreciation of one of Len's ventures into the crime and 'what if?' fiction genres: SS-GB. This is the story about a Great Britain which has lost the Second World War and is under Nazi occupation. Mike's review highlights that such is Len's attention to detail, the reader asks less 'what if?' and more 'did that really happen?'
Check out the post here.
This is a blog about the books, film and world of British thriller and spy novel author Len Deighton, writer of The Ipcress File, Funeral in Berlin, SS-GB, Bomber, Berlin Game and many other books. This blog also covers the spy thriller genre and the Cold War more widely. It is a companion website to the main Deighton Dossier archive (link on the right). It is the only website + blog endorsed by the author himself! Content (c) Rob Mallows 2008-22 unless otherwise stated.

Mmm, re read this last week - a thought provoking book if ever there was one. Great read.ReplyDelete
I am a huge fan of historical fiction and alternate history. Very few of them nail it quite like LD did here.ReplyDelete
