A comical thing.

Well it has actually happened: MBT has been mentioned in a comic context over at my elves are different and I am as pleased as punch.

Thank you, Steve, you are a cunning pundit, sir.

I was wondering if you plot your novels at the kitchen table ...

Lamplighter was great, thanks. Reminded me of China Mieville and James P. Blaylock.

Yes I do - and by the spice rack, too, wearing a thrice-high and a frockcoat while I do.

I think I'd pay money to see the video of that...

Howdy Ben, welcome sir.

I am hoping the third book will be of a descent length - if the forces that be shall let it. Where I am at at the moment I cannot see how it will be short anyway...

How goes the Evil Overlord [TM] business?

i hope for your sake it isnt quite as long as the novel in Wonderboys.

[not that anyone else has the slightest inkling what im talking about, but i mean well]

2,611 pages! Phew - I think I might hav driven myself mad before then!

If it's that long, I don't think I'd have the money to buy it! Mind you I'd still try to persuade my mum... lol...
But yes I do agree with more length... it just makes you look cool reading an awesomely big book in front of people... and the fact that theres more storyline in larger books (no duh), and that means more suspense, more characters, more uh... coolness!!!
lol I'll stop now :(

I totally agree susan, yet I still encounter with montonous regularity reviewers who baulk at and criticise Book 2's length - it's like they've never seen a thickish book before. Leaves me wondering what they normally read, Little Golden Books?

Susan said...

Haha! Yes... it does make you wonder... But what's wrong with a big book? Once you've read a small book you're just gonna go get another book, and eventually you buy 10 books which are the same size as one big one!
and theres never enough in small books... but I s'pose they are strange (and I wouldn't be surprised if they read golden books...lol...) and for some reason a long book is a bad book...
but in my oppinion, if a long book has too many boring bits than yes, its bad to be long, but if they are like your books, and are full of adventure, then why not be long?

Ahh, bless you; what a lovely thing to say - I am all a-glow.
