A Visit from the Airbrush Fairy

OK, so I still haven't managed to track down a copy of Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell. It was clearly Around at the Worldcon. People tell me it's good. And Big. People tell me it's Big. Meanwhile, here's a picture of Susanna. This is, pretty much, what she looks like, you know, here in England. This picture comes with a little note explaining that this isn't what she looks like in America -- in America, Susanna looks like this. It must be some weird glamour. Ottakar's Yossarian suggests that she's had a visit from the Airbrush Fairy. Update 28/9/04: The book arrived from Amazon yesterday, and I'm devouring it in great chunks, blinking as I return to reality every so often for, eg, meals. It's difficult, though; my doctors have told me to avoid lifting heavy weights.

Yes, I think I bought a copy at worldcon. I can't say for sure because I bought a lot of books and most of them are still somewhere between here and Boston in the mail system. God help'em.

I'm very eager to read it though.
