New British edition of The Good Fairies of New York

Piatkus will be publishing their edition of The Good Fairies of New York on the 10th January. Although this book has been available here as an import from America, it's quite a while since it actually had a publisher in Britain. Waterstone's are promoting the book in January and February, so I hope to see bundles of the book lying around on tables in their shops. It's good if you can get your books lying around in bundles on these tables near the front of the stores, but it can be a difficult thing to achieve.


My heart raced as I read that Scarlett Johansson's marriage has come to an end. The poor woman will definitely be in need of some comforting. It's time to relaunch my plan of hanging round in hotels looking forlorn, in the hope that I can meet the beautiful Scarlett and establish some sort of Lost in Translation-type relationship. I have the camouflage t-shirt ready and everything, and can do the Bill Murray ageing desperation part no problem at all. I have Just Like Honey ready to play in a big final scene. As long as Scarlett has the pink wig with her, everything will be just perfect.


  1. perhaps you can get her to do a part in the "Lonely Werewolf Girl" movie, and who knows... Such things have happened before.

    Wow, that edition looks nice! Once Scarlett reads it she'll kiss you right there in that hotel bar. I miss New York.

    I got a copy today, from Waterstones in fact. Unfortunatley there weren't bundles of the books stacked at the front of the store. I caught a glimpse of the cover as I was walking past the fantasy section, read the title, laughed, read the blurb, laughed some more, and decided I had to buy it. That decision killed my resolution not to buy any more books until I was done with my huge 'unread' pile.
