Swifty met up with Jasper Fforde at Dymocks in Perth and got his book signed. (Great post, go read.)
He asks, does the writer have any fans in Malaysia?
Although I haven't read him yet, Swifty, I do intend to: his books look fun. I bought some titles for the British Council library, so if anyone wants to try him out, look there. (And dare I whisper it, there were piles of his earlier novels at a previous Times warehouse sale, going for a song. Poor Swifty.)
Fforde's latest book is The Fourth Bear. And Swifty says he has signed copies of it for the Malaysian market, so I guess it will be hitting the shops here soon. (Wish he'd stopped by himself!!)
Also worth reading on Swifty's blog is Justin's review of Donald Barthelme's 60 Stories.
