Updated: a review in Library Journal just popped up online. Yay! Now watch the ellipsis in action!

 “This curio-cabinet of literary works is … a bit like an otherworldly Farmer’s Almanac…. Its charming and eclectic sensibility should appeal to readers of fantasy or literary fiction.”


Hold still, I'm reading.

The Best of LCRW has arrived! To our new office! We are overcome! New York Times list: here we come!

Please do remember to buy your contracted-for 40 copies on Aug. 29th or just after. You don’t remember signing that contract? Please ignore the note below.

The quote you can’t read on the front cover is either (where are my glasses?) either from Oprah or Matt Derby. Those two are so hard to keep straight.

By reading this note you agree you will purchase (either from a New York Times reporting store or an indie bookshop or at least Amazon) 40 (forty) copies of The Best of LCRW on or about August 30, 2007.

    Ok, I read this post twice – the original one, and then the updated version. Does this mean I have to now buy 80 copies of the book?

    Livia, thanks for being such an enthusiastic reader! If you read the contract you will see that you now need to buy 120 copies which should be enough to wallpaper at least one room with. But why stop with one room when they all cry out (noisy noisy walls!) for such lovely treatment?

    Hmmm. It’s note showing up on Amazon yet (even as a pre-order). Is Lib Journal that much ahead of the game?

    Sadly my bank balance cannot withstand the blow of 40 copies. I thought I’d make at least a token gesture towards the contract, though, and pre-ordered one copy from amazon.co.uk… (I can’t wait to read this book.)
