gothic with a buzzard on my head

Thanks for The Kitschies for a lovely Gothic Evening on the Charing Cross Road at Blackwell's! Here are Jared Shurin and Anne Perry, who run the award and lots of fab related events. (Come see them at our Worlds of Tomorrow children's & YA Sci-Fi panel talk at Foyles on 22 May!)



This was my slightly bizarre take on 'gothic'. I should have put a beak and eyeballs sticking out of the hat, that would have been even more fun. With Penny Schenk.





And the most excellent comics gang was out in force! Here are Emma Vieceli, Nana Li and Kate Brown.



Philip Reeve, John Aggs and Kate Brown:



When writer Sarwat Chadda met Philip Reeve, he immediately tweeted: Omg I have just met @philipreeve1 ! #fanboywipeout Ha ha...



Photographer, journalist and writer Joel Meadows with his album, Spooked:


Here's Philip in the tube, looking mighty fine in that hat.



Oh, and just one more thing, have you seen Lucy Knisley's comic of a cookie recipe? Go have a look...

That last picture? That is a classic.

Thanks so much for coming - it's always a delight to have you (and your hats). Last night I was talking to a woman who's a fan of Philip's when you two came in - she stopped mid-sentence and gawped at him, literally open-mouthed, as he walked by, then whispered to me "that's Philip Reeve.

That's... a fabulous hat. It's like a feathery version of these big hairy things worn by the Queen's guards.

It wasn't a chicken, it was a boa constrictor! Of the black feather variety. Amazing what one can do with a bit of fluff from the back of the wardrobe... ;)
