Hello all

So we're well into the last 24 hours, and unless something remarkable happens this will be my last update until we're finished. A very short one, then.

SFX magazine ran a short piece about us here:

We're very close to 400% of my original goal, which is just astounding. I promise you won't be disappointed with the final result.

But, more importantly, tomorrow is the end of this campaign. I will be in the Phoenix Artist Club, 1 Phoenix street, just off 100 Charing Cross Road, tomorrow from 4pm. If you're free to watch the numbers (hopefully) tick over for the last half hour of the campaign on a big screen, and perhaps meet an Uncle fan or two, please do pop along - I'll buy you a drink! Here's the website:

Hope to see some of you there, and thanks again to all of you!

      I'm sorry that I can't be with you at the Phoenix Artist Club, but I'm virtually there and raising a theoretical glass in toast to you from the other side of the world. Huge cheers from me. I remember when Red Fox brought out the "Uncle" hardback after having already bought out the softcover double edition, I asked them how they thought that would sell and told them they should be bringing out the other, hard(er) to get titles. Their answer was very weak. It will be great to get hold of these books at last and read them. "Let joy be unconfined!"

      I'd love to be there but I'll be too busy cooking pizza for the kids - and about 400 miles north. Have a fun time! Sink a bottle of Black Tom for me.
