Wiffle Lever To Full!

Daleks, Death Stars and Dreamy Sci-Fi Nostalgia…

Macclesfield Wifflage

OK, this is the last one of these, I promise! Thanks to Adam, who snapped this sensational sighting of Wiffle Lever To Full! in the Macclesfield branch of Waterstones…

Macclesfield Wifflage

I’ve never been to Macclesfield, but it’s always had a place in my heart because it’s mentioned in passing in Alan Garner’s fantastic children’s novel The Weirdstone Of Brisingamen, which I still love to bits. And since mentioning The Owl Service on this blog two months ago, I now get a steady stream of traffic from people Googling for Alan Garner sites, so… hello! Alan Garner fans unite. We should have a meeting every year in a remote Cheshire farmhouse before going out onto Alderley Edge at midnight to hunt Svarts.

Anyway, the picture…. you’ll notice that yet again I’ve been pictured alongside Anne Frank. I have no comment to make on our relationship at this stage, and I’d also like to distance myself from reports that I’ve become ‘close’ to Marianne Faithfull.

Right, off to do something useful with the afternoon… don’t forget I’m at the PM2008 Prisoner convention in Portmeirion this Sunday. I’ll be hanging around all day flogging books and doing bits on stage as well, I think. So if you’re there, come and say hello – and bring me a dark chocolate Kit-Kat, I’ll be famished by 4pm.
