After hearing unsubstantiated and possibly libellous rumours of a newly published novel containing nary a single reference to either vampires or witches, on Saturday I plan on sprinting down to one of London's largest book shops to witness this incredible event. Imagine my ecstasy upon entering, my first time since the fiftieth and hopefully final novel of aforementioned HP, to find not a single adolescent of indeterminate gender dressed like something from my worst nightmare screaming maniacally whilst hoping for a autograph from said imaginary witch. Oh, and I don't want to be pedantic, well actually I do, but shouldn't Harry B***** Potter be referred to as a warlock?
Dare I hope that this rumour could be the actual truth?
Could it be possible that witch/vampire fervour has finally left London? Other rumours from shady web sites, hold that there are other novelists out there actually writing books entirely divorced from the subject of witchcraft of bloodsucking. I can't quite imagine, or remember what those subjects might be, my memory doesn't stretch that far back. However I wait in tremulous pleasure.
