Looking forward to purchasing my copy at the Cambo event.
I think it ends 'Long Live Fence'  :)

Tuesday night at 8:30 Vic is talking about the book. Not sure if there are still tickets available. Might be worth checking the book festival website. Tickets are a tenner.

I look forward to reading it. :)

See you there... and on Sunday as soon as Neil Gaiman's talk is done :D  I started the book this weekend and I'm really enjoying it so far, well done Vic!

Top night with Vic last night. Some very funny anecdotes. An hour was nowhere near long enough. I got the feeling he could've talked all night. He took time to chat to people at the book signing as well. He told me that KC and JY will be appearing with him at the Jura Unbound event on Sunday night.

Sounds great.  8)
Looking forward to this event done in September at the Cambo Estate.  :)
I'm going to the Jura Unbound event as well.  ;D

We're coming down on Sunday too, we should wear name badges or carnations in our buttonhole (no euphemism).

I will be the half-cut bird trying to sneak in late after Neil Gaiman's talk  :o

Baldpar, how did I miss you again??  ::)  I got talking to Rosti (who got a hug from Vic during the talk cos he owned a Deaf Mutes album  ;D ).  I was too shy to start shouting your boardname in the room and hoped you'd notice the loud midget, sorry  :-[

I was keeping an eye out for you. Obviously missed you  :(
Will try again on Sunday. I'll be the bald man with glasses, probably wearing a denim jacket.

What's the craic with the Jura Unbound thing?  Is it really JY and KC and whisky on a bank holiday Sunday for free???  That seems a bit easy and too good to be true, Shirley?
