From Cordelia Flakk: Press Release regarding Thursday Nextreme.
We regret to announce that the Thursday Nextremer, Simon Castle, has died. He was killed during his attempt for the final Thursday Nextreme competition in which he hoped to track down the fabled Bull of the Bullring, Birmingham whilst reading a Thursday Next book, of course. Unfortunately his copy of The Eyre Affair is a first edition with a red cover, which enraged the bull and resulted in tragedy. His friends said ³He died as he lived: blindly ignoring everything around him.²
Note: No Simons were harmed in the making of this entry. Huge thanks to Lauren Parkes for helping with the idea, providing the fake blood and taking excellent photos regardless of the crowd of people staring at us.
