Gah! I thought I deleted the extra Harry. He really is the boy that didn't die... That's a fantastic question (how many went from movies to books), and I'd love to know. From everything I've heard, movies and television do have a sales impact (which isn't a surprise, but still, nice to know it isn't a myth). But no not sure how much... maybe we can drag up the GoG figures - that's probably possible. (Goes snooping)

Good point about website and app! I gave up on them right away - I just assumed there was stuff to do and didn't even bother with them after the first attempts. I liked the RFID tap-in-tap-out system, but yeeps. Our most esoteric cosplayer was someone playing Hitler from Springtime for Hitler from the Producers. Which is something like 5 levels of fictional metaness.
Awesome! That sounds brilliant, actually - a designer friend of mine in Melbourne swears by how it is such a fun and bonkers and diverse and up and coming city. Sounds like the cons are following suit!

That's the impression I got as well - very The City & the City!

I haven't read it in ages (and only once), so I may be unduly harsh - but I remember it being really... silly: sort of a gimmicky short story that got over-extended into a brief novel. I will definitely re-read and report back, I don't want to slander a JDM!

Nice point. I'm always sad I never learned how to play that, actually. Maybe the Bloodbowl tie-in fiction will scratch that itch. Which is a weirdly specific itch.
There's a crazy enthusiasm that helps propel the book from one SUPER-AWESOME moment to the next. Continue reading
