Rhesus Negative

Talent and ambition are fine things, but when unforeseeable impediments repeatedly stall their progress and threaten to stymie their fulfilment, desperate measures may be taken. In the case of B.L.

Again, his efforts were rewarded with the ruthless application of the most extreme prejudice against him. In an excellent re-telling of these events, B.L. MacKinnon also describes […]
