After a brief review of the phenomena expected in cold dense quark matter, colour superconductivity and colour-flavour locking, we sketch some implications of recent developments in our understanding of cold dense quark matter for the physics of compact stars. We give a more detailed summary of our recent work on crystalline colour superconductivity and the consequent realization that (some) pulsar glitches may originate in quark matter.
