Darren Shan Tries to Strangle The Opposition!

It all started out so nicely. Mr Shan was signing books at our local Borders store so I thought, "Where's the harm in taking a selection of kids down to get their books signed?"

You have to wait a while to meet Darren Shan. He's very popular. My own theory is that part of his success (apart from writing cracking horror) is that he's so approachable and takes time with every punter who comes up with a book (or in my son's case eight books) to sign. Basically he's an all-round good guy.
So imagine my horror at his reaction when I told him about Mortlock...

I just about escaped with my life!
