Programming note: On Monday Steyn returns to UK telly for the first time in decades. He'll be joining Colin Brazier live at 8pm London time (3pm North American Eastern) on the new GB News. You can watch from anywhere on the planet right here.
Meanwhile, in case you missed it, here's how the last seven days looked to Mark:
~On Monday Mark's column considered the demographic death spiral in England and Wales: it was our most read piece of the week.
~On Tuesday Laura's Links rounded up the Internet from vaccine-derived youth myocarditis to national suicide.
~On International Pronouns Day, the midweek edition of The Mark Steyn Show marveled at the US military's effortless ability to make itself even more of a global laughingstock, but put in a word for Colin Powell's record collection.
~On Thursday Mark hosted another Clubland Q&A taking questions from Steyn Club members live around the planet on old Steynian themes (demography is destiny) and new wrinkles (the centrality of Bagram air base). You can listen to the full show here.
~On Friday Tal Bachman discussed Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn and the west's spiritual crisis.
~On Saturday, in memory of the late Leslie Bricusse, Mark presented a special audio edition of his Song of the Week, with Leslie, Don Black, Tim Rice and David Arnold discussing 007 and "Goldfinger".
For his weekly movie date Rick McGinnis marveled at Robert Mitchum doing film noir in the Seventies.
~Our marquee presentation was Mark's brand new Tale for Our Time: his audio adaptation of Jane Austen's first completed novel, Northanger Abbey. Click for Part Fifteen, Part Sixteen, Part Seventeen, Part Eighteen, Nineteen, Twenty and Part Twenty-One. Part Twenty-Two airs tonight.
Tales for Our Time and Steyn's Sunday Poem are special productions for The Mark Steyn Club. The Mark Steyn Club is not to everyone's taste, but we do have members in every corner of the world from Virginia to Vanuatu, and, if you have a chum who's a fan of classic poems on video or classic fiction in audio, we also offer a special gift membership.
The war on terror has ended in shambles and shame, and the global humiliation of a fallen superpower. There is no better book on the war's first year, and the lack of strategic clarity that eventually spelt doom, than Steyn's The Face of the Tiger.
A new week at SteynOnline begins later today with a Tales for Our Time special and our Song of the Week. Please join Mark for the audio edition of Steyn's Song of the Week on the UK's Serenade Radio every Sunday at 5.30pm British Summer Time - that's 12.30pm North American Eastern, or 9.30am on the West Coast. You can listen to the show from anywhere on earth by clicking in the top right-hand corner here.
