• Double Acts and Distorting Mirrors by Christopher Meredith
The novelist and poet discusses his translation of Mihangel Morgan's Melog: a book that he describes as 'obsessive in its imagery and patterning' as well as 'crammed with Welsh cultural references' . Literary translation, Meredith discovers, is an intense and interrogative kind of reading.
• Mr Vogal by Lloyd Jones
A humourously honest account of how the author came to write his first novel in the form of 'gonzo picaresque', and a meditation on such subjects as Wales, middle age and being a 'blydi mutant'.
• The Dulling of Ploughshares by Will Atkins
The former fiction editor of Seren looks at two comic writers of the so-called 'dime thriller': Malcolm Pryce and Jasper Fforde. Are they parodists or pasticheurs, or is their work more about farce and satire?
