The hardback under the wrapping

The hardcover is big and very dark blue and, as you can tell, has gold hieroglyphics on the front.

Launch Event Tomorrow Night!

There is a Launch Event tomorrow evening in London to meet some of the contributors. I will not be there. But egyptologists, authors, and readers will be turning out in force, and it looks like it will be a great evening ~ I hope you can join them and report back to me. I demand pictures!

"Egyptological flair" is encouraged but not mandatory

P.S. seems to like my offering:
The Curious Case of the Werewolf That Wasn’t, The Mummy That Was, and The Cat in the Jar” takes the cake. In addition to bearing the best title of all The Book of the Dead’s short stories, Gail Carriger’s narrative is one of the standouts of the entire affair. I haven’t read any of the Parasol Protectorate books, but I’m keen as can be now, if this terrific tale of a mummified werewolf is any indication of their greatness.
