The Maleficent Seven


BOOM!

IN YOUR FACE!!

Ladies and gentlemen and Minions of dubious gender, I give you the cover- with text and without- to The Maleficent Seven.

Rejoice, puny humans, for the ArtGod Percival has delivered his most brain-smashing cover yet.


And the world is a happy place.

OHHHHHH.

That was indeed worth waiting for.

I love it.

And the title!!!!

Kribu said...

Hmm. As a friend of mine just pointed out, Tanith seems to have lost her leather.

... I guess a girl needs a change, sometimes?

Derek Landy said...

Well, I figured since Tanith has to go around recruiting seven members for her team, just like the Magnificent Seven had to do...

And let's face it- aren't you astonished that nobody has yet used this title??

Derek Landy said...

She's in a few different outfits in this book, but rest assured she always returns to brown leather...

Miss Cain; The Aussie Ninja Stalker said...

OH MY GOLDEN GOD.
THAT IS FREAKIN' AWESOME DEREK!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Kribu said...

I am indeed astonished.

*bows*

Oh, but it's beautiful... So. Hmm. Only about 3.5 months to wait. And it's out right around my birthday. Woot!

Derek Landy said...

I swear, with all the outfit changes she made, it was like I had my own very lethal Barbie...

DarquesseCain said...

Best cover ever. Can't wait to read it.

Miss Cain; The Aussie Ninja Stalker said...

Lethal Barbie...
*laughs*

Miss Cain; The Aussie Ninja Stalker said...

HI DEREK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Derek Landy said...

Miss Cain- exactly the reaction I was expecting..!

Kribu- we planned that. Just for you. Honest.

Luciana said...

My mum just yelled at me for making a seriously high pitched squealing sort of sound.


I AM TOO EXCITED FOR THIS BOOK, OMG. AKRDABKESHKFJ. *screams*

Kribu said...

"Lethal Barbie."

I don't think I'm going to be able to think of Tanith as anything else now. :-|

Derek Landy said...

DarquesseCain- it is, isn't it? It's just GORGEOUS.

Derek Landy said...

Luciana- tell your mother it is not your fault. I accept full responsibility.

Miss Cain; The Aussie Ninja Stalker said...

I CAN'T SQUEAL CUZ IT'S 11:54PM AT NIGHT AND IF I SQUEAL MY PARENTS WILL HEAR ME AND THEN I'LL GET KICKED OFF THE COMPUTER.

DarquesseCain said...

I am so happy right now. Hi Derek.

Kribu said...

And of course you planned it just for my birthday. I'm feeling... honoured.

Yes. Honoured.

(Now if there was Valduggery in it, I'd be even more honoured. But I digress.)

Miss Cain; The Aussie Ninja Stalker said...

OMGG.
I WANT TO SQUEAL SO BADLY.

Unknown said...

wow.. she looks hot.

Ieni Strider (Ieni The Ninja Aeroplane, Eater of Fabi's armses) said...

Omg, it's amazing! Me loves and me wants, NOW!

DarquesseCain said...
This comment has been removed by the author.
Kribu said...

Even I nearly squealed! Except that it was more like a squeak.

I'm so glad I work at home. Because that would have got me some odd looks at the office.

Luciana said...

NEW PHONE & LAPTOP BACKGROUND, RIGHT THERE

I am too excited for march. March 28th, right?

I SHALL START COUNTING DOWN XD

Derek Landy said...

Rhian- she DOES look hot. See, this is where my attempt to put her in a bikini would have totally worked.

Miss Cain- perfect the inner squeal. It's just as loud, but only your soul can hear it.

Hiya Darquesse.

Ieni Strider (Ieni The Ninja Aeroplane, Eater of Fabi's armses) said...

March 28th? It can be a few days late birthday prezzie for me *nods*

Miss Cain; The Aussie Ninja Stalker said...

Derek.
I'm spazzing instead of squealing.
My face probably looks hilarious.

Derek Landy said...

And here is Kribu's one track mind at work again...!

("many-tracked mind"... pffft yeahhh)

DarquesseCain said...

I am the girl who went to see you three times last time in Kilkenny. I think it looked like I was stalking you!!

Luciana said...

*laughs crazily* SHE IS NOW LAUGHING AT ME,. G)uimj\ va[wucrybqW_0ae


BUT IT@E+RW(CEidnf0t8\ syerb\a


Derek, your fault

Kribu said...

Hey! My mind had a Tanith track right there.

I mean, I actually lived for several moments without thinking about Valduggery.

Unknown said...

she could so totally pull off a bikini. (no pun intended)

salman said...

this looks soo cool

Miss Cain; The Aussie Ninja Stalker said...

!&#%^)&!(&*$)@(&_$(^&@)(&*(#^(!)*_)#&*)&@_(&#)(&#*)&))@&iPASIFPHBASKFIHASBGFAPOGHFN;DFHAIPPPVNOWIPN



OH MY GOD.
SKYPE PICTURE CHANGED.
SKYPE UPDATE CHANGED.
COMPUTER BACKGROUND CHANGED.
IPAD BACKGROUND CHANGED.

Derek Landy said...

Rhian- I think that was my editor's problem...

DarquesseCain- oh dear. It's you. Oh dear god.

Kribu said...

It's almost tempting me to change my background too.

Except that I can't bear the thought of parting with Skulduggery. On either my computer or phone.

Luciana said...

SPEAKING OF SHIPS AND TANITH...

I REALLY WANT SOME CHINDUGGERITH FANFICTION

AND CHINITH

AND VALITH

and, I kind of don't want Steak to happen, but to be all tragic and she is dying then the Remnant leaves her in her last moments and she tells Ghastly she loves him and then we all sob for eternity.

Yeah, that's what I want. *nods*

Captain Skully the Ossim said...

O:
THIS IS EPIC.
I love the name, you must tour and walk out to the Magnificent Seven music blaring behind.
EILTKEAJRKQWJEJPQKEIJQ
:D Also Hi Derek, it's Skulma'am. Remember me?

Zephr Shadows said...

DEREK THAT IS BEAUTIFUL I can't wait

DarquesseCain said...

I didn't try to attack you on the street Derek it just looked that way. I promise.

Zephr Shadows said...

I'm in my college libary so I'll have to wait a while before I can let myself scream at the awesomeness

Miss Cain; The Aussie Ninja Stalker said...

It's such a shame it's the weekend tomorrow...today.

I WON'T GET TO GO TO SCHOOL AND BE CRAZY UNTIL MOOOOOOOOOOOOONDAAAAAAAAAAAAAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Luciana said...

THERE BETTER BE TANGUINE IN THAT NOVELLA, DEREK

andikindofwanthertokillhimeventhoughitsSanguineandIlovehimlots. XD

Zephr Shadows said...

((also Hi everyone!!!!)

Ieni Strider (Ieni The Ninja Aeroplane, Eater of Fabi's armses) said...

You, Clover, are such a nice person ;P
Omg, Sanguine is such an awesome character! *nods* If he ever dies, I'll go bury myself in a hole and never come out.
Although, don't hold me to that.

Miss Cain; The Aussie Ninja Stalker said...

...TANGUINE...

Zephr Shadows said...

Still though, the one Derek drew was a real contender :p

Luciana said...

*laughs* I'M THE NICEST PERSON EVER, CLEARLY. GAWD, IENI. HOW COULD YOU NOT KNOW THAT!?

8yssdrfb\sce8cdrbtESA8[FY

MOST OF THE 'WORDS' I AM SAYING OUT LOUD ARE MORE LIKE SQEUALS BECAUSE COVER AND NOTHING MAKES SENSE

i think it's time my family accept that they need to read Skulduggery because it's perfect.

Tom is reading it. My brother MIGHT finish reading them (he's on DD). My sister says she might read one over Christmas...! I SHALL MAKE THEM ALL OBSESSEDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD C:

Kribu said...

There, have done my duty as a Goodreads librarian and updated the book details...

Still 3.5 months to go. Ack.

Miss Cain; The Aussie Ninja Stalker said...

*tries to calm down*

*fails completely*

*sends email to friend RIGHT NOW WHICH IS MIDNIGHT XD*

Captain Skully the Ossim said...

I'd much rather have Derek's. Tom's was a bit of a let down after seeing that beauty >_>

Valice said...

Oh. My. Golden. God!
THIS COVER IS AMAZING!!
It's nearly as good as the one two posts below...! :D

Zephr Shadows said...

I have parents evening in two hours I don't think i'll have recovered by then.

IT'S SOOOO PRETTY

Miss Cain; The Aussie Ninja Stalker said...

I'M GETTING MY FRIEND TO READ SP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

She told me today that she'll start them soon.

Miss Cain; The Aussie Ninja Stalker said...

*IS HYPER AND THINKS THAT I WON'T GET ASLEEP VERY EASILY TONIGHT/THIS MORNING*

Luciana said...

THE NOVELLA SHOULD BE RELEASED TWICE. ONE WITH DEREK'S COVER. THE OTHER WITH TOM'S.

THEN WE CAN HAVE THE, BOTH LOOKING SEXY ALONG WITH THE OTHER BOOKS. C:

Valkyrie V. - Ivy said...

DEREK IT'S BEAUTIFUL I LOVE IT AND I'M GOING TO DIE IN AWE OF ITS AWESOMENESS

Derek Landy said...

But look at it again, Kribu... doesn't it deserve a prominent place?

Skulma'am! Good to see you! And that's not a bad idea...

Scream, Zephyr. Let your freak flag fly.

Luciana- Tanguine? Tanguine, you say? Oh there is Tanguine. Oh there is LOTS of Tanguine.

Miss Cain; The Aussie Ninja Stalker said...

YES L.

YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS.

Harriet Lemon Langley said...

So I may have actually squealed...quite loudly. Oh my goodness TANITH XD I can't wait for this now! And that cover is actually amazing, they get better and better each time. *jumps around excitedly*

Kribu said...

Derek's cover was also made of pure awesome.

But I have to admit Tom's almost as good. Plus, well, the title is a teeny bit more awesome on this one.

Miss Cain; The Aussie Ninja Stalker said...

TANGUIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIINE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Oh my God, I'm hyper.

Zephr Shadows said...

OK I SHALL SCREAM!

oh dear. the librarian was not impressed

DarquesseCain said...

Have been staring at cover for the last five minutes.

Valkyrie V. - Ivy said...

Derek, doesn't this come out in March? Around the end of the month?



(As in a few days before I go to the coolest freaking country ever in April?)

SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO EXCCITTTTTTTTTTTTTEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD

Valice said...

Derek, does Scapegrace has magical abilities in his new body?
And if yes are the abilities the same he had in his "old" body? And what were his abilities in the old one?

Zephr Shadows said...

I don't think the librarian's too pleased I'm using the computer for this instead of work

/someone/ clearly doesn't read despite being a librarian!!!

Miss Cain; The Aussie Ninja Stalker said...

THIS IS AMAZING.
IT'S GOING TO LOOK AMAZING ON MY SHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEELF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Kribu said...

Also, it's a pretty cover and would deserve a prominent place, but... Well. How should I put it.

My current desktop has Skulduggery on it. And as hot as Tanith is, Skulduggery is... erm. Well. All... bony, and gorgeous, and... yeah. Sexy, in a word.

Valkyrie V. - Ivy said...

I just clicked on the cover so I could see it better and I literally started shaking in awe of it.


The shouting will begin soon, have no doubt.

Unknown said...

Oh. My. God. That is so cool!

Lethal Barbie *laughs* I want that for Christmas

Miss Cain; The Aussie Ninja Stalker said...

I'M ALREADY SHAKING!!!






THIS IS SO FREAKIN AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Zephr Shadows said...

IT WAS SO WORTH THE LONG WAIT

Ieni Strider (Ieni The Ninja Aeroplane, Eater of Fabi's armses) said...

I ship both Tanguine and Ghanith, because I feel so bad for Ghastly, although, I'd be happy if Ghastly died and then I could ship Tanguine happily :)
BECAUSE SANGUINE IS SUCH AN IDIOT IT'S SO FUNNY AND HE'S AMAZING!

Valkyrie V. - Ivy said...

Yes, Derek, I want a lethal Barbie too.



And that door you destroyed. I want to show it to my door, so that way it knows what happens next time it makes me ram my face into it.

Zephr Shadows said...

oops caps!! blame twitter fangirling ;)

Unknown said...

The cover is now my new screensaver.

I am so glad I decided not to go to school today. I would have missed this joyous event.

Harriet Lemon Langley said...

I think there should be a special edition published with Derek's cover, I'd buy that! (:

Miss Cain; The Aussie Ninja Stalker said...

I'm glad I stayed up this late. *nods*

Luciana said...

WE NEED A FILM

AND WE NEED TANITH BARBIE DOLLS, SO SHE CAN BE THE ONLY BAMF OF A BARBIE DOLL EVER (well, there is Katniss but...KATNISS AND TANITH WOULD BE A REALLY GOOD FIGHT TO WATCH BECAUSE TANITH WOULD RIP HER TO PIECES!)

yeah, Tanith dolls. So they can be BAMFs.

AND A FELT TANITH AND SKULLY AND CHINA AND VAL AND SANGUINE AND RENN AND BESPOKE AND RAVEL AND THE DEAD MEN AND EVERYONE AND EY7TRCBqp*wYE we need felt SP characters. I SHALL CONVINCE MY SISTER TO MAKE ME SOME FOR MY SEXY BOOKCASE

I'm Jubilance Glee / Occasional Haiku-er / And a dinosaur said...

OH MI GOD! ITS SO EPIC

Kribu said...

Oh dear god, if there was ever SP merchandise, I'd go bankrupt so fast...

Unknown said...

Yeah, me too.

Harriet Lemon Langley said...

I would kill for SP posters. I may print this new cover out on A3/2 and stick it up!

Valkyrie V. - Ivy said...

I've been forced to make my own Skulduggery merchandise for myself... Like my blanket...


*coughImighthaveaccidentallybreachedthecopyrightsorryDerekcough*

Derek Landy said...

Good girl Harriet!

Valkyrie V. Cain- yep, this has an end-of-March release.

Luciana- Valguine? You are WEIRD.

Valice- yes he does. Magic comes from the person, not the body. As for what Scapegrace's magic IS... we might get to see it.

Kribu- you make a good point. As usual.

Persephone- Lethal Barbie. Violent Barbie. Tanith is all these things and more.

Leni- do you not think that Tanguine sounds like an energy drink, though?

Miss Cain; The Aussie Ninja Stalker said...

SP DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOLLS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Luciana said...

SP MERCH WOULD BE THE MORE PERFECT THING EVER AND I WOULD BUY IT ALL

IMAGINE, LIKE, MCDONALDS TOYS, TOO, THAT'RE SP. AND BOBBING SKUL-MAN TOYS. AND FELT CHARACTERS. AND DOLLS. AND POSTERS I COULD ACTUALLY GET. AND R\WA6C TWG5 XG7EA5XRTVWYWERSCY8Y'WE UTDFYVW'9EYFI

Zephr Shadows said...

WAIIIIT

will ther be posters for this too????!?!?!?!?!?

BECAUSE THAT WOULD BE FREAKING AWESOME

Valkyrie V. - Ivy said...

There already are Skulduggery posters... I have a Death Bringer one from Derek.


(The Melancholia side scares me)

Unknown said...

Where can I get Skulduggery posters?

Miss Cain; The Aussie Ninja Stalker said...

EOUBFVWOABNEOBGVDSNLAD

WE NEED SP MERCH, DEREK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Harriet Lemon Langley said...

SP energy drinks?! DO IT PLEASE XD

Valkyrie V. - Ivy said...

If there's a movie, I know the perfect Valkyrie for it.



*COUGH COUGH*

Unknown said...

Hi Derek!

Miss Cain; The Aussie Ninja Stalker said...

SP ENERGY DRINKS!!!!!!!!


(OH GOD I'M HYPER)

Luciana said...

Valguine ism't that weird. c:

Chinduggerith is probably more weird, and that's my ot3. c:

I BLAME SPARX>

SHE'S CORRUPT ME

GHAVEL IS SHIPPABLE, TOO, GHASTLY AND RAVELLLLLLLL <3

but, yeah. I'm not THAT weird.

Valkyrie V. - Ivy said...

End of March! YAY!


HECK YES I'M MAKING YOU SIGN THIS DEREK

Jed Dark said...

Hi Derek, love the awesome covers!

Unknown said...

Chinduggery is awesome.

Valduggery freaks me out, but I kind of ship Vilequesse

Miss Cain; The Aussie Ninja Stalker said...

DEREK.
YOU BETTER COME TO AUS NEXT YEAR BECAUSE I NEED MORE BOOKS SIGNED.

Luciana said...

MARCH 28TH, A MONTH AFTER KOTW PAPERBACK, THE DAY THAT KOTW PB WAS DUE FOR RELEASE

according to Amazon

Valice said...

Hi everyone!!
POSTEEEEEEERRRRRRSSSS!!!!! :D
I love posters, my rooms are full with posters, including two Skulduggery-Posters i got from the book shop near my house..

Unknown said...

Come to the USA! East Coast please!

Valkyrie V. - Ivy said...

I ship none of this nonsense! Because shipping means kissing! GROSS!


Yep, I'm still that immature.

Harriet Lemon Langley said...

I don't ship much, but I want Ghastly and Tanith to end up together *weeps into an SP book*

I'm Jubilance Glee / Occasional Haiku-er / And a dinosaur said...

YES! DEREK WHEN ARE YOU COMING THE THE U.S.??!?!?

Luciana said...

VILEQUESSE IS MY DB OTP BECAUSE PERFECT AND YEVRHCV\E5RC6WWARTBEYUUXTRRFCVYWartEBXYEHUFI'CBA6DTDVUTAWBE8D9VFCRD7TTR68ESYG

killing each other = sexy. *nods*

Miss Cain; The Aussie Ninja Stalker said...

I HAVE 2 SP POSTERS AND A GIANT SKULDUGGERY CARDBOARD CUT-OUT.

Ieni Strider (Ieni The Ninja Aeroplane, Eater of Fabi's armses) said...

Omg, yes!
I think it should be blue, or orange.
And I think, it should possibly be poisonous in some way and should contain tea for Ghanith lovers...

Excuse me, while I go kill my friend, over Facebook, because she still hasn't read KOTW. Ah, she just pointed out she's too young to die. I don't care, this is an unforgivable sin.

Unknown said...

Val, I still say that boys have cooties. I'm the Queen of Immature

Dragonheart said...

YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!
THE COVER IS AMAZING!!!!!!
Plus, hi everyone!

Unknown said...

So The Maleficent Seven will be the novella Derek has been working to release coming out in the near future.

I read mention of the short stories from the newer publications of SP being rereleased in a new format. will they be included in the Maleficent Seven or is that another book entirely?

Zephr Shadows said...

ASFGVBMBFUAKGBGJVASD

Kribu said...

Other people's ships make mine look so normal. :D

I've yet to work out how to get SP posters. I did manage to get one of those big round things that, I think, were hanging in some bookshops, with Skulduggery and fire and Happy Halloween! written on it, off eBay a while ago, and it's now gracing the wall above my computer.

My mother thinks I'm slightly odd.

She may have a point.

Zephr Shadows said...

sorry i'm still freaking out

Cassidy Clarimonde (Self-Appointed Grand Mage of the Scottish Sanctuary) said...

End of March!?!?!?!??!?!!



BUT

I AM EXCITABLE AND AM CRAZY NOW!

Seriously people! How are you getting this stuff?

Miss Cain; The Aussie Ninja Stalker said...

*mutters*

*types in ebay address*

Valkyrie V. - Ivy said...

Ghastly and Tanith is fine, I guess... Because both characters are good.


BUT NOOOOOOOOOOO, A STUPID REMNANT HAD TO COME AND RUIN EVERYTHING, SO THEY COULDN'T BE TOGETHER, AND NOW GHASTLY IS STUCK WITH A BORING JOB WITHOUT TANITH BECAUSE SHE'S EVIL



Ridiculous rant over.

I'm Jubilance Glee / Occasional Haiku-er / And a dinosaur said...

Valkyrie V. - Ivy said...

Magpie, I only have mine because I won a contest on here last year.


OOOOH I MADE A RHYME!

Derek Landy said...

You're all so very odd.

Dragonheart said...

I'm so excited right now, no joke. I'm in school, in math actually, reading this behind m teacher's back as my friend glares...

Dragonheart said...

hi derek!

Harriet Lemon Langley said...

I consider that a compliment good sir! *dips top hat*

Unknown said...

Yes. I am extraordinarily odd. YAY ODDNESS!

Valice said...

Derek I really love the name 'Tanith' it sounds so cool... where did you get the idea for it?

Niamhy Jay said...

OMG I AM IN LOVE WITH THIS COVER!!
It is amazing!
It is so great!!
Tom should be so proud of himself!!

I'm Jubilance Glee / Occasional Haiku-er / And a dinosaur said...

ODDNESS IS AWESOME :D

Luciana said...

I'm still sat here in my uniform....

DEREKKKKKKKKK, your fault.

Did you ever find any rainbow dust, by the way? IT'S AMAZING

Miss Cain; The Aussie Ninja Stalker said...

I LOVE BEING ODD.

Luciana said...

i'm not odd! I'm even! :D

I'm Jubilance Glee / Occasional Haiku-er / And a dinosaur said...

AND I'M A PRIME NUMBER!!...

Why would anyone want to be un-odd?

Valkyrie V. - Ivy said...

Derek, you don't know the meaning of odd minions until you see this.

Zephr Shadows said...

Derek, will there be Tanith posters?? *hopes you will say yes*

I'm Jubilance Glee / Occasional Haiku-er / And a dinosaur said...

well, the odd one is actually my friend who REFUSES to read SP....


HELP

I have to go. Bye everyone!

Friend - She has the perfect evil smile.
Me - I know...

Friend - You know the lightning's going through the hill, right...

Me - It's a tree.......

Friend - I wouldn't recommend holding a metal sword in the middle of a lightning storm...

Miss Cain; The Aussie Ninja Stalker said...

BYE PEOPLES THAT ARE GOING!!!!

Ieni Strider (Ieni The Ninja Aeroplane, Eater of Fabi's armses) said...

Bye, Jubilance! *waves*

Kribu said...

Dragonheart - my Tanith-loving friend said the same thing about the sword and the lightning!

Well. We can but see and hope the book won't end with fried Tanith.

Valkyrie V. - Ivy said...

I kind of wish Tanith was older because then, if there's a movie, Alex Kingston could play her...

Dragonheart said...

Hey guys!

Harriet Lemon Langley said...

*waves frantically* Bye!!!

Dragonheart- Never actually considered that...that would be the best ending:D

Luciana said...

Hello, anyone that appeared!

Bye, anyone that left! *hugs*

Derek uou NEEEEEEEEEEEEED to come to Jersey!!! It's part of the UK, so when you go on a UK tour, INCLUDE US!!! We're pretty mental over here, too.

Valkyrie V. - Ivy said...

HI PEOPLE THAT HAVE ARRIVED!


*chucks chipmunks at people*



Sorry, I'm a bit insane right now. Well, right now meaning all the time. So.. uh...

Dragonheart said...

Harriet - Maybe it would kill the remnant!

*Crazy Grin*

Miss Cain; The Aussie Ninja Stalker said...

*mutters*

*continues to search for SP stuff*

Luciana said...

DEREK

I'M NOT THE ONLY ONE THAT SHIPS VALGUINE, AHAHA! I'M NOT SO WEIRD, NOW

Ieni Strider (Ieni The Ninja Aeroplane, Eater of Fabi's armses) said...

Have to disappear now, anyway.
Came on here to do homework and reply to some emails, before disappearing, BUT NO I GOT DISTRACTED!

Dragonheart said...

Valguine?
*Scarred face*
No, no, no, no, no!
Now I can't get it out of my head!

Derek Landy said...

Wayne- the plan is to release The Maleficent Seven (TMS) in hardback (and ebook) form only, and not follow it up a few months later with a paperback- because that'd only make some Minions want to be buy two versions of the same book... TMS will then be republished as part of the SP short story/novella collection which will be out in 2014.

Hiya Dragonheart.

Valice- the name Tanith Low was inspired by the author, Tanith Lee...

Zephyr- I'm discussing Tanith posters as we speak...!

Bye Cassidy!

Emerald Melody said...

That actually cheered me up...
It makes the hospital bed feel more... Dereky
thank you Golden God!!

Valkyrie V. - Ivy said...

Derek, is it bad that when I grow up I plan to have a ton of pets to name after SP stuff? Because right now I particularly want a hedgehog named Fletcher, and-


OW HEADACHE OW SOMEONE MAKE IT GO AWAY OWWWWWWWWWWWW-


Okay, headache gone.

Kribu said...

Ha! I knew Tanith's name came from Tanith Lee! Well, I was pretty sure of it, anyway. (Speaking of whom, everyone should read The Silver Metal Lover because it's awesome.)

Valkyrie V. - Ivy said...

DEREK YOU SHOULD DO PAPERBACKS! I LOVE BUYING MORE BOOKS THAN I NEED!

Melica Frost said...

DEREK!! OHHH DEREK! question - will there ever be an SP movie made? (im being peer pressured...)

Miss Cain; The Aussie Ninja Stalker said...

EM!!!!!

*HUGS*

Melica Frost said...

and derek, I know I have asked you this before but if you come to Scotland can you come to Glasgow please?????

Valkyrie V. - Ivy said...

*frowns* I just fell over... Again...


Derek, I make a request that at some point Valkyrie runs face-first into a door, so that way Skulduggery can prove how terrible doors are. And because then I could shriek madly about how Valkyrie is clumsy like I am.

Luciana said...

DEREK, I THINK YOU KILLED EMMA

I just realised something weird... Maybe not weird to YOU, but definitely weird to ME...

Amanda is going to be fourteen when we go to Ireland and I'm still going to be thirteen. THAT'S NOT FAIR! IT'LL MAKE HER SEEM NOTICEABLY OLDER!

Harriet Lemon Langley said...

Dragonheart, if that ends up being the actual storyline I will be in awe of you forever!

And Derek, POSTERS?! You just cheered me up so much.

I showed my friends a page of 'Dark Days'today and one of them said 'Well now we know where your sarcasm comes from' :D

Derek Landy said...

Valkyrie V- out of all the weirdness that is you, what you name your future pets is sincerely the LEAST of your problems...!

Hiya Jubilance!

Melica- hopefully there'll be a movie. Hopefully.

Luciana said...

I think my mum might be dragging me out of the house, soon...

but I might be able to get another SP book! I NEED DD WITH THE NUMBER ON THE SIDE!

Harriet Lemon Langley said...

Hey Derek, any chance of replica Tanith swords? :P

And you should totally do a tutorial on how to get hair as silly as Fletcher's!



Valkyrie V. - Ivy said...

I like showing people the pictures for the chapters, because whenever there's the S with Stephanie on it I shove it in their face and shout, "THAT'S MEEEEEEEEEE!" and they're stunned at how it actually looks like me.

'Tis amazing.

Melica Frost said...

Is it wrong that I prefer Derek's version? Derek's version had a pretty flower, and everyone loves pretty flowers!

Valkyrie V. - Ivy said...

YAY! I SHALL GET A HEDGEHOG NAMED FLETCHER!



I shall tell my mum that you said that wasn't a problem with my weirdness.

Valkyrie V. - Ivy said...

Derek, my sisters say HI!

Kribu said...

Jubilance, some people are just stubborn.

I quite purposefully avoided telling any of my friends that they must/need to/really should read those books.

Instead I just kept talking about them. Incessantly. And about how awesome they were. And I think after a while I managed to wear them down and now most of them are reading the books. :D

Miss Cain; The Aussie Ninja Stalker said...

I'M UP TO CD 8!!!!!!
