Coming Imminently

(14 comments)

I had, in fact, expected to be doing a book launch post today, but it's slightly delayed due to idiosyncrasy. So instead, we'll just shamelessly tease.


And while we're teasing, I began what I'm, for now, calling Secret Project. Actually, no, I like Warren Ellis's method lately of just assigning codenames to projects he can't talk about yet. So we'll call this project Butterscotch. Here's a paragraph of Butterscotch with roughly 80% of the words removed. Butterscotch will be finished and unveiled in 2014.

That book really does look like it's 50 years old. Nicely done.

An exploration of British culture through a chronology of the occupants of the Saturday teatime television slot?

Oh, wait, that's pretty much something this blog does already....

Excellent cover, makes me a little sad I'm trying to avoid buying books that physically exist and sticking to digital ones. (I'm out of bookshelf!)

An exploration of British culture through a chronology of the career of Noel Edmonds. It includes a redemptive reading of Mr Blobby and exploration of the depiction of ultimate evil on children's television via an interview with Keith Chegwin.

Actually that is the digital cover. The print version is ever so slightly different.

Glad you like it though :)

Am I the only one who initially mistook the cover image as being a blue-coat Colin Baker? :-/

Also... hmmmm. Blake's 7?

I'm changing my guess a little - substitute KINGSLEY/MARTIN for JOHN Amis.
