Oh, but it's not this brilliant piece of Shaun Tan bookcover art (she purrs):

This edition is coming out, in Australia, in February next year, from Allen & Unwin.

Oh! How lovely!

This is by far my favorite cover art I have seen of your book. Truly. It has been on my wishlist the minute I saw it. I am sorry for the way of contacting you, but I never saw an e-mail address.

My name is Harry Markov, editor of the review blog Temple Library Reviews http://templelibraryreviews.blogspot.com/. I am just a humble reader and a reviewer, who is very intrigued by your work. I hope that sooner rather than later I would have the opportunity to read your work, but until then I would like to invite you to a small Halloween feature. I realize that perhaps your schedule is filled with other appointments, but I am on the upswing to creating this special Halloween feature with 13 horror and dark fiction authors. And I wanted to approach you for an eventual participation, because nothing ventured nothing gained.

Here is the Halloween question:

It's undeniable that Halloween has had quite a sway over mainstream culture. Apart from giving a push to many formats from Halloween special TV episodes to Halloween themed books, movies, comic books and even music, I think it has popularized and helped spread the horror genre around the globe as well as the desire for a chill thrill and a hefty scream. Halloween has established a pantheon of monsters used for scaring small children and grown-ups alike. Whether you yourself celebrate this holiday or don't, can you say what monster or paranormal concept scared you in your youth and fascinated you at the same time?

The feature will list all author's answers with a short bio and covers of their work and will be published on Halloween. I hope that you would have the time to answer this question and participate in the event on the 31st.

Best,

Harry
