Notes from extinction


I have the new Diana Wynne Jones book! And it's a sort-of sequel to Howl's Moving Castle! *does the dance of squee* I re-read Howl again last night in preparation. I also have the new Felix Castor book. And the new Danny Wallace book.

Met my ex-flatmates for dinner tonight, which somehow turned into drinking pitchers of cocktails till closing time. Mmm.

I was looking at a collection of Faraway Tree books in Borders, and the blurb was:

When Joe, Beth and Frannie move to a new home, an Enchanted Wood is on their doorstep. And when they discover the Faraway Tree, that is the beginning of many magical adventures! Join them and their friends Moonface, Saucepan Man and Silky the fairy as they discover which new land is at the top of the Faraway Tree.

WUT? "Joe, Beth and Frannie"? Bring back my Jo, Bessie and Fanny. Apparently it's been abridged, too. I can't think what was remotely offensive - will have to dig out my old paperbacks at my parents' house and re-read them!
