Well I hope everyone has a good night tomorrow to whoever is attending a midnight party. I will be at one in Picaddilly, London. There’s a costume contest at my one too but I dont have any costume. I got a Harry Potter wand somewhere, though so I’ll take that and do some swishing and swashing with it!

I just wanted to add a “PS” to anyone who will be coming. I’ve printed up some color Giclee prints of the original cover to FACT, FICTION AND FOLKLORE that was not used by the publisher—they only used a portion of it. Tim will be signing these and giving them away randomly as door prizes—we have about 40 of these, so we hope some of the regulars at The Leaky Cauldron stop by and pick them up. (Tim will, if you ask him nicely and he’s not overwhelmed with other requests, do a small sketch on the print.)
