I received a most excellent communication this morning via PaperTape from the charming Professor Elemental (who sometimes masquerades about town as the dashing Paul Alborough), who had this to say about the new book:

A ripping yarn! TICKER grabs you from the first page and doesn’t let up until the book is done. Packed with imagination, mystery, humour, excitement, and heart made of solid brass.

And now, if you’ll excuse me, I need to have this sky-written FOR ALL THE WORLD TO BEHOLD!
