Forgot to mention that I got a box of finished, bound, wonderful HarperCollins copies of Coraline today. The cover is astonishing -- seeing it in its finished form, with the Dave Mckean art reproduced in top quality form, with the overlay done unvarnished so it's a ghostly thing that appears and vanishes once more, I was astonished at how fine it was, and I'd always expected it to be good. On a first thumb-through, I didn't see the normal embarrassing typo I normally find immediately on opening a finished copy of a book for the first time. Happy. Good night.
