This is a much belated post. Remember when I mentioned I was going on proper vacation at the beginning of the month? We were in Vancouver. We’d been planning it for awhile, Adam hadn’t been out to British Columbia in a few years and I’d never been anywhere Canadian beyond Toronto, so we spent a […]

This is an announcement regarding New York Comic Con. Saturday October 12th I will be signing copies of The Night Circus from 4pm-5pm at the Random House Booth. #2205, I think. Books will be free (as far as I know) until there are no more books and then I will still likely sign whatever until there […]

flax-golden tales: pumpkin picking

pumpkin picking You must pick a pumpkin. You are not allowed to leave without one. (And trust us, you don’t want to stay here.) The pumpkins are more or less identical, relatively similar in size and shape with subtle deviations in stems and shades of orange. Their contents… vary. Three contain fulfillments for wishes which […]
