For the last 18 months, I've maintained a companion blog, the explodedlibrary bunker. It's been a place where I've kept the occasional draft, discard, aside and rant which never made it to the here, the main blog. It's been a space for venting and experiments. I'm thinking of taking this blog in a slightly new direction and a part of this would involve making more use of the bunker. Because there's going to be more interplay between these two blogs, I've decided that it's time to announce its existence.
