News: I don't see it up on their website yet, but the Society of Authors is taking bookings for a talk in London by Axel Scheffler, author of The Gruffalo and lots of other fab books. (Mon, 26 Jan, 6-7:30, £7.50 for members, £10 for non-members. Book here: 020 7373 6642). Last time I saw Mr Scheffler he was wearing the most fetching yellow jumper imaginable.

And a bunch of us LiveJournal people have handmade stuff up for sale here on The Big Shill!

Hey, there's as really good prize today on the DFC advent calender!

Newsflash Edit: Just heard from Andrew Wildman (of Transformers fame) that he and Jason Cobley have set up a website for their upcoming DFC strip, Frontier: the Weird, Wild West. Have a peek, it's all guns blazing! The site includes the ongoing diary of Daisy Adams, the story's rough-and-tumble 10-year-old star.
