Tony, a heads up but gioving nothing away can be found on the amazon site for pre ordering Snuiff.

Like you, I don't want to know any more than I do already! Ooh, roll on publication date!

Thanks meerkat! :D Yes, I've read the blurb, but I'm funny about reading a chunk of a book that I won't be able to read the rest of for some time. Bernard Cornwell sometimes posts the first chapter of his new books on his website and I refuse to read them. I guess it's a bit like trying to work out what your christmas presents are. I never do that. :D

Nope! I used to when I was a kid, but having to pretend to look surprised on christmas day when I already knew what I was getting kind of spoiled the whole thing. :wink:

I did it ONCE :oops: When I opened the SPIROGRAPH!!!!!!!!!! OMG! A SPIROGRAPH!!!!!!!! it had all these pages of completed patterns.... I managed to convince my parents they must have been samples to show someone HOW to do it :oops:

(Well... lovely white paper was in short supply back then... I couldnt throw it out)

I have NEVER ever looked ever ever again. I think it was more the fact I lied to my parents.

But I do read the last page first when I get a book........

And don't worry Tony... the excerp from Snuff is random... reveals NOTHING!
