oh no, I just looked at the link for Paul's website and found the comment about Dr John Hicks replacing the bursar in the cover illustration.

It's like you said in Budapest after you'd been talking to your friend Dave Suchet, Pam... oh..., you'll have to explain it to John as he wasn't there!

(Does that help?)

It's quite a bit bigger role in this one as well. Although you need to change your name to Hix.

I don't think they are available just yet - presumably when the book comes out. You should then be able to get them from the shop in Wincanton or the website HERE. :D

I got an incling of that when Terry signed one of my books to Dr Hix.... and then later joked about the character changing his name as it sounded "cooler". I'm fine with that.....
