For those that haven't listened to me yet and gone to buy it yet, the winner of this years World Fantasy Awards best novel? Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell, Susanna Clarke (Bloomsbury). It's definately my favourite book of the last few years, I plugged it a bit here and everyone I know that's read it loves it. That includes Neil Gaiman, although I haven't met him yet...

Currently reading the Dark Materials trilogy by Pullman, very good so far, but keep getting distracted by the evil intorw3b so am only on the first book. I'm, um, succumbing to the lure of Harry Potter, and am going to see the film when it comes out. That's the 00.05 showing Friday morning, ([livejournal.com profile] faeriecween already has the tickets) and I'm being dragged along with [livejournal.com profile] aliennurai, [livejournal.com profile] byteback, Logan and Lucie. Lucie's the crazy one who thinks the Palace of Westminster should be painted pink.

But before that, am travelling to Germany with [livejournal.com profile] granjero to attend KoHIT, the Warlord worlds, which will be fun. I'm one of the few that's been to every event so far. Travel back Monday, stay, hopefully, with [livejournal.com profile] nadriel for a bit before trotting off to Reading for the random insanity that always seems to occur there.

There's a chance I'll be posting either via SMS or LJ2ME to [livejournal.com profile] warlord_ccg while I'm at the event itself, if anyone's interested...

Hehe have fun in Germany
And to be honest, I want to see the HP film too..
I'm nowhere near as big a fan as certain people you know..
But I'd like to see what they do with translating the book to the screen.

Tournament in Germany, eh...?

Um, is this the time to say that i won't be dressing up? No costume and no money makes it a little difficult. logan's not going because he didn't answer his phone when i rang him. Unless he rings me before then of course and suddenly is going in which case he will be going. sense I make.

Yay Harry potter!!!
