Amazing Phil

The Spoiler Zone is still the only place you can discuss KOTW, but while you're doing that, this is a book review that Amazing Phil did on Blue Peter. I used to watch Blue Peter all the time when I was growing up, so it's pretty cool to be featured on it, and I reckon Phil did a fantastic job of grabbing the attention of non-Skulduggery readers.

It's also really nice to catch a few glimpses of Skulduggery himself... I think the exploding pillar thing is EXCELLENT... and it really makes me want a Skulduggery movie even more...

Phoebe said...

oh my gosh 4th!!

Sorry ive never been that close to the top before ;)

Phoebe said...

Derek, there SO needs to be a SP movie. ...only problem is, making Skulduggery look real-enough might be a bit challenging...

Colleen McGuigan said...

Yay, cool, I'm so close to the top :3
I LOVE PHIL. I just love him!! So Phil AND Skulduggery was just too awesome! :D

Colleen McGuigan said...

I'm still laughing at the Pippa and Kate Middleton stickerbook, Derek... xD

Colleen McGuigan said...

Testing this....

Colleen McGuigan said...

Ah, Okay it worked :3

Alexander Mythology said...

Tenth!!!

Alexander Mythology said...

This is the closest I've ever been to the top! Oi'm excoited!!

Phoebe said...

:D tell me about it!!

Colleen McGuigan said...

Hi, Mythology :)

Alexander Mythology said...

Hey Derek, since I'm near the top and in case you ever check the comments, may I suggest to you that you make Skulduggery Pleasant into an Anime series? That would be wicked. Like Avatar the Last Airbender.

Alexander Mythology said...

Oh, and hi everyone else.

JonathonMoore. said...

Hello random people!!! ;-)

Alexander Mythology said...

Kia ora.

JonathonMoore. said...

Gidday mate. :)

Colleen McGuigan said...

Hey, guys :)

Alexander Mythology said...

Are you a kiwi?

JonathonMoore. said...

Hello *looks at user name* Colleen.

Colleen McGuigan said...

I wonder if Danisnotonfire is reading SP now... OMG. The thoughts of that are just so cool! :) But, Derek, just to warn you: I know they are "mature" guys in their early twenties... But they WILL try until they die, to do magic. They're Dan and Phil, with the imaginations of two year olds. I'd say Dan already has a crush on Tanith and Phil is sitting there trying to lift a paperclip with air. Yeah, that's what they'll be trying to do :3

Mayan said...

YAY! NEW BLOG POST!

-HB/Joe- said...

Huh, sorry. I'm back. YAY! let's be Kiwi's together.

Alexander Mythology said...

Alexander Mythology said...

I gotta go anyway. See ya!

Luciana said...

I WAS DISAPPOINTED. ;_;

IT WASN'T LONG ENOUGHHHH. D:

i missed it on the t.v. because i was ill and i locked myself in my room to read kotw which was perfect and i felt a little better after reading it.

So, yes. More Skulduggery. *nods*

AND I NOW HAVE 38 SP BOOKS. Another arrived in the post, yesterday. :D

38? That's alot...I will soon have 10.

Luciana said...

Hai.

38 isn't so many. I am getting more soon! :D

Anonymous said...

It more than 3 times the amount I have. And I can't get any more, or my parents will give me a whole long lecture about buying books I already own.

Luciana said...

My parents already did that.

I just told them how much my books are worth.

:D

Anonymous said...

Well, I am 11, so they still pretty much don't understand how obsessed I am.

Eve the ROCK said...

Ah! Hello! We have a whole new good post for the Ball! And I must watch that video!

Helena Ember Sky said...

Helena Ember Sky said...

Eve the ROCK said...

Eve the ROCK said...

Gotta go!

Arcanine said...

Stealing free WiFi to read this at the moment but it won't let me watch videos :(
So I will have to watch this when I get home... Hmmm :)

Colleen McGuigan said...

Hi Luce:)
I'm fine :)

Colleen McGuigan said...

I'm great actually, had so much fun yesterday :') (Apart from Mum tripping crossing the road and almost getting hit by one of the Luas Trams...) :P

Phoenix Mithrandir said...

Hello!

Phoenix Mithrandir said...

I think I'm the only one who made my dress.

Phoenix Mithrandir said...

This is it.

Helena Ember Sky said...

Woah. Amazing!
Romantic made her dress.

Phoenix Mithrandir said...

Hello-o?

Phoenix Mithrandir said...

Oh, hi Helena.

Phoenix Mithrandir said...

Doll Divine, Game of Thrones doll maker.

Drew O'Connor said...

Yeah those damn Luas trams will always sneak up on people Colleen lol

Helena Ember Sky said...

Uh cool.

Eve the ROCK said...

Save your dress for Saturday, Birdy!!!

Colleen McGuigan said...

I know, it had stopped to let people on near O'Connell street, and then we crossed the road and it started speeding up. It was actually quite funny :P I live near the country side, so being in Dublin is always like New York to us hehe :P I've been 4 times so far this year :3

Phoenix Mithrandir said...

This one's my favorite. I'm using it as my profile pic now.

Phoenix Mithrandir said...

WBD.

Phoenix Mithrandir said...

Hey guys. What say you we save his post for the Requiem Ball, and use the other one?

Phoenix Mithrandir said...

You know, no idle chit-chat on this one till the Ball.

Eve the ROCK said...

We won't run out of space even if we use this post all night, Birdy :)

Phoenix Mithrandir said...

Yeah, but can you imagine how many people will be there, and how hard it will be to keep track of the comments, and how rapidly they will fill up? I'm just saying. We should save some space.

Eve the ROCK said...

I guess so. But once we run out of space, we'll just go back to the other post. Not everyone will listen to us. A lot will just stay here to talk.

Eve the ROCK said...

I like the picture, by the way :)

Luciana said...

Sorry for poofing.

I'm having to do my brother's homework. >_<

Flame Phoenix said...

Heyy.

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

Luciana said...

R.E is a painful subject...

OHMYGOD. I wish I could do a degree in SP. I'd ace itttt;D

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

Heeey Luce!!! Em really got me in trouble!!

Colleen McGuigan said...

I like R.E, Mainly for the teacher, she's so cool :3 We're supposed to be talking about Bibles and God and Praying, but we always end up talking about bats or something :P And then I always fail my exams... This years I got a B in, which is Okay, I guess :)

Flame Phoenix said...

How'd Em get you in trouble?

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

She went to Eason's* yesterday and told Derek about me exploding Ireland ect. And trying to assibate her. Derek told me to stop blowing up Ireland and thinks I have issues

Anonymous said...

Ordered KOTW on Amazon yesterday because it was only like £6 on there, but now I have to wait for delivery! I'm dying here. Won't even watch this review yet, because I'm worried about spoilers.

I love your Skulduggery series, Mister Landy. Your writing inspired me to create my own novels! You're my favourite author ever, even before myself ;)

Colleen McGuigan said...

There's no spoilers in it Suz :) It's a review of the first book :)

Anonymous said...

Oh the first book! In that case I'll watch away. Thanks, Colleen :)

Colleen McGuigan said...

No problem :)

Colleen McGuigan said...

My Dad keeps asking me who is Darquesse. I refuse to tell him, he must READ. THE. BOOKS. >.<

Anonymous said...

Ohmanomanoman! Awesome video review. I wish the Skulduggery movies would hurry up and get made too! I'd like to audition for the role of China Sorrows please ;)

Colleen McGuigan said...

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

Anonymous said...

Colleen McGuigan said...

So far, this is probably the best year ever! :D :
KOTW, I get to go see Marina and the Diamonds in October, The Script '#3' is out on the 10th September! 'Electa Heart!', Interviewing Derek yesterday :D And I finally learned to play the piano... (Uh...A wee bit :P) The Hunger Games movie!
2012 Is awesome :)
2011 was the end of Harry Potter, so that was probably the saddest year ever :'(

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

Video time if Dad is up by Mom im making my video. Im hoping Derek watches it. He'll hear my accent

Eve the ROCK said...

Hehehehe. I'm actually very interested in reading your books though. Are they available anywhere? My local bookstore? Dymocks, maybe? Or can I just pluck them randomly from magical fountains?

Colleen McGuigan said...

How is everyone? :)

Eve the ROCK said...

I'm pretty goose, Colleen, how are you?

Colleen McGuigan said...

I'm fine thanks:)

Colleen McGuigan said...

My books are somewhat available. Book 2 is an eBook on Amazon, but I'm having trouble getting the first book published. It should be ready by tomorrow. Writing the 3rd book in my Bedeviled trilogy, Eve Eden vs. the Devilish Demon, right now! :D

Anonymous said...

Any other writers on here? I had a look at some Skulduggery fanfic, and I loved what I read on those forums. I prefer reading fan fic by anyone who reads the Skulduggery books, for obvious reasons ;)

Robin Snowscar said...

I LOVE AMAZINGPHIL I'VE BEEN SUBSCRIBED TO HIM FOR LIKE EEEEVER OMG *dies*

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

O.o i just saw this yesterday

Robin Snowscar said...

SP and AmazingPhil in one video *hyperventilates*

Robin Snowscar said...

*fangirl scream* AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH

Flame Phoenix said...

ROBIN YOU LIKE PHIL TOO?

Eve the ROCK said...

Yeah, Zafmira, I was trying to test my picture for the Ball, but I have to do it on the computer and my ROCK disappeared. It'll be fine by tomorrow :)


Oh okay, cool!!!!!! The story sounds awesome, and I'm not just saying that because her name is Eve. ;)


I've written a few shorts, but I don't plan on trying to publish any. I looked at the fanfics the other day, and I accidentally read a Valduggery one. I fear I am losing myself.

:P

Robin Snowscar said...

I keep watching this EEEEEEEEEEEEP! So exciting I can't breathe OMG *skips happily*

Luciana said...

*frowns*

Internet hates me..

Robin Snowscar said...

I want to see him so I can kidnap him and - I mean so he can sign my copy of SP... *shifty eyes*

Robin Snowscar said...

Hello Zaf and Luciana

Robin Snowscar said...

Faceless ones is still my favourite one... I wonder whether that will change after reading KOTW *muses*

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

Hey least Derek doesnt think you have issues. I know I have issues

Luciana said...

Tomorrow is going to be hell.

I use the pictures everyone has to tell who said what. I hate having to look at names. After all, a picture is worth a thousand words..

Robin Snowscar said...

*frowns at Luciana*

Whut?

Luciana said...

*laughs* The pictures people have tell you something about them. You can tell plenty about someone from their proflie picture here in Blogland. That's how I first work most people out...*shrugs* I thought it was pretty normal..

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

Hmmm

Robin Snowscar said...

Zaf -Oh! I just didn't get what you meant. I don't personally, I like words.

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

Im proud of myself!! I made mac and cheese all by myself and ddnt blow up my house :D

Taia, Raisin, A Good Bear (actually undead) :) said...

LOL
That video is hilarious, Derek.
I think Skulduggery's impeccable dress sense could've been captured a little better, though. :P
Even so, I'm sure that'll be right when (And I mean when, not if) you get that movie out. :3

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

Im going to make the video bout 10-15 minutes. Waiting for computer toturn on

My sister has not yet grasped the beauty of Skulduggery. She SOMEHOW did not find it funny.

Unknown said...

NO not possible Skulduggery is funny any way you look at it Hi Zaf! * hugs*

Mayan said...

I was... disappointed in her. But as she now has the essence of Derek Landy nearly-bite on her I can forgive her.
