Just unutterably cool, this. I’m not even sure I have all the words. Here’s one pic:
Here‘s the whole page.
I think I might be this Thomas Merrilyn, slightly reincarnated.
That I’d have missed without being passed the link on Twitter—thanks. This one’s over on Amazon UK, and . . . so cool, right up there with that Will Byrnes write-up on Goodreads. I’ll link it then screencap it in as well:
Hey, look what’s sneaking onto the book tables in Australia here at the end of 2016:

I know, I know: been a while since one of these, yes? Thus this one being a long scroll. But, I mean, I’ve been writing a novel, and being in California for ten days, and being some other places too. I seem to vaguely recall an injury as well.

Was so cool A) to get to intro it, and B) to get to SEE it on the big screen. I mean, was cool just even seeing it on the wall (I’m like Cher in Colorado, yes: just one name):

And, yeah, that poster: I guess I see what people are talking about—that Attack the Block owes more than a little to Wolfen.
