*** TOP CARABAS RECOMMEND *** ALAN MOORE IN CONVERSATION WITH ROBIN INCE at Waterstones Islington! * UPDATE: NOW SOLD OUT *  “Alan has just completed a work of a lifetime, Jerusalem. Described by Alan himself as the most important book he will ever write, it is already getting some fantastic reviews, being compared in some quarters to Joyce and to Danielwski by way of Dickens; an ambitious book to say the least, its world of demons and river monsters are firmly rooted in a world which owes a lot to our own. In a very rare public outing, Alan will be discussing his new book and all things magical with the wonderful Robin Ince. Tickets are £5 to be redeemed off the price of the book. We expect huge interest in this event so advise that you book ahead.” Waterstones Islington, 11 Islington Green, London, N1 2XH
