So it is true that Jasper FForde is writing a new TN book? Anyone have any idea on the theme?

I am so excited!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! but that means no nursery crime coming out next summer...all well i'm sure a 5th Thursday will be worth it, I really want to hear more about little Friday...if that kid actually spoke english in the 5th book that would be wonderful...he seems to important, I just feel like he will greatly effect the 5th book, I don't know maybe not just a random guess.

At the signing tonight, I asked if he will utilize some Austen characters since they are beloved and in public domain. He replied he's definitely considering Darcy and Lizzy! Hooray!
He also said he's tossing around ideas for a third series apart from Next and Nursery Crimes.

At a signing in Sydney someone asked if there was a chance that Thursday, having had a book written about her, would meet her bookish-self. Jasper said that that was a possibility... hmmm.

What I want to know is if she will ever have the epiphany that the Outland she knows is really just another book in the Library...
