They Walk Among Us

The other day Spouse of Clam was reading this book which seemed to be perfectly mundane historical fiction when a couple of chapters in she suddenly said, ‘Hey, there’s a golem in it!’ Then the other other day I was reading this other book which also seemed to be perfectly mundane historical fiction when, at the beginning of chapter two- there was a golem! I have held off starting any other books since then, just in case.

You don't have a house golem?

Lucky you weren't listening to Triple J on Sunday night. The topic of conversation on ?John Saffron's? show was... golems.

Also, let me know what Spouse of Clam thinks about Ash. I've read a couple of Mary Gentle's pseudohistoricals (1610 contains Incomprehensible Alchemical Cults and Some Sorcerism) and have very mixed feelings about them.
