To celebrate the third #RLSDay on 13 November 2013, we discussed Robert Louis Stevenson with Jeremy Hodges, the author of the new biography Lamplit, Vicious Fairy Land. We find out about Stevenson’s “lost loves” including Kate Drummond, a girl he met at a brothel and who likely lives on as Catriona in Stevenson’s sequel to Kidnapped, his relationship with his cousin Catherine in France and the fact he very likely died of syphilis. The book is available from the RLS Society website. We also feature the track ‘Filly’ by New Archer from the EP Bees Nudge The Mouth Of A Feathered Rose.
