Two copies of the Australian edition of Magic or Madness just arrived. They’re beautiful. All tradepaperbacky and shiny and lovely and Australian, complete with the unique-to-the-Australian-edition afterword. It’ll be available in book stores there next month. My birthday month. Yay! Only sad thing is I won’t be there to see ’em till November. Sob. Why am I never in the country in which my books are coming out when they come out?
Here’s what it looks like being read by Marlowe, one of our Aussie house guests:
Marlowe thought the book was okay, but a bit lacking in train engines and explosions. I shall attempt to correct that in the sequel.
Can’t say as the little lad doesn’t have a point. While your book was rather entertaining I don’t remember a single choo choo train. Nor an explosion. Makes a fella think.
