The vigil for Sarah Everard on Clapham Common, 13 March 2021.

While this blog has been quiet over the last six months or so, the Frightful Hobgoblins collective has been active, meeting weekly and writing for a range of publications. In future, we will be making a blogpost whenever one of us releases an article, but in the meantime, here is a selective chronological digest of articles, reviews and interviews published by participants in recent months.
