Eve's Alexandria is a group 'lit-blog' orginally founded in 2006 as a way for five university friends to continue their bookish conversations after graduation scattered them throughout Britain and Europe. Over the years it has slowly transformed into a venue for our long bookish ramblings, with some of us writing more regularly than others.

Our taste in books is eclectic, but I suppose our fiction interests are best described as 'literary', historical and sf, with a sideline in the classics. Every year we run featured reviews of the Arthur C. Clarke Award shortlist and the Orange Prize longlist, and have been known to dally with the Booker Prize too.


Our interests are oh-so-various, but it all begins and ends with books. As to our areas of expertise? Medieval and Islamic history, museum ethnography and anthropology, geoscience and English literature.
