John Higgs: Blake's grave, new book

A couple of interesting bits from the latest John Higgs newsletter:

William Blake's grave location was recently found again,  and Higgs will show up for the scheduled unveiling of a new gravestone for the poet: 3 p.m. Sunday August 12, Bunhill Fields, 38 City Road, London EC1Y 1AU.

The William Blake Society lists Philip Pullman as president and Neil Gaiman and Alan Moore as patrons.

Higgs also reports delivering the manuscript of a new book to his publisher, but he coyly omits any details, promising news at a later time. Meanwhile, if you haven't yet, read his Watling Street book, which talks about writers such as Blake, Alan Moore and Steve Moore (read my review.)
