'It's more than speculation, it's a prediction.' That, famously, was the tagline for The Swarm - the 1978 disaster movie starring Michael Caine that depicted the impact that a swarm of 'African Killer Bees' would have on the United States. It's a sad reflection that the opposite is now true, and bees and other pollinators are under threat. That's the starting point for Hive- the award-nominated novel by our guest this week, April Doyle. In a fascinating interview, we discuss how she was drawn to the subject, and we also explore her work as a creative writing teacher in her home county of Kent.
Also this week, Adrian and Rebecca discuss the impact of issues created by a new computer system at the UK's leading bookshop chain, and look forward to a busy month ahead for Hobeck Books with three books being released in August.
