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!

Hi Katie - lots of places! List here - http://www.jurassic-london.com/the-lowest-heaven.html - but all the usual suspects of Amazon and Kobo, plus indies like Spacewitch. Hope you enjoy the book!

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.

In fairness, High Life had some pretty cute infographics about weather words and Washington DC dining. But, um, yeah.

That's a lovely idea! It may be that Give a Book have one set up already - it is worth dropping them a line at: http://www.giveabook.org.uk/contact/ Or keep stockpiling! We're looking at organising another one, maybe January-ish!
