Unashamed plug for my lovely friend

My friend Andrew Hickey is a software engineer, musician and writer. After many years of writing for an online audience for free, he’s decided to try his hand at doing the same thing but for money, because even writers need to eat.

He writes funny and wise short stories, books about music, comics and Dr Who. You should totally go check his work out and if you like it, buy some!

George Whitman, founder of Paris’ Shakespeare and Company bookstore, dies at age 98 - The Washington Post

A bohemian traveler, Whitman was once nursed to health by Mayans in the Yucatan during a 3,000-mile (5000-kilometer) trek across Latin America and sometimes bragged that he had lived in Greenland with a beautiful Eskimo woman.

At home, Whitman was best known as a pillar of Paris’ literary scene. For more than half century, his eclectic Left Bank shop was a beacon for readers, who spent long hours browsing its overflowing shelves or curling up with a good book next to a drowsy cat.

Shakespeare and Company was also a haven for every author or would-be writer passing through the City of Light.

For them, Whitman reserved a welcome that turned Yeats’ famous verse — “Be not inhospitable to strangers / Lest they be angels in disguise” — into deed: He took in aspiring writers as boarders in exchange for a helping hand in the store.

Whitman died Wednesday in his apartment above the bookstore, two days after his 98th birthday and two months after suffering a stroke, the store announced on its website.

You know someone has paid attention to what you really like…

when they visit Switzerland and bring you back horse meat jerky and a book about bears.
