I just finished The Big Over Easy and loved it. I stumbled upon it while looking for another book in the library. I've been trying to access the special features page but have had no success. I keyed in the answer to the 'aide-de-camp' question but I'm still unable to open the page. Is the special features page still up? Is there a special way to key in the answer. Thanks for the help.

Hi haptown,

have a look here which may help you. You wil;l have to look through more than the first couple of posts, though!

Hey SkidMarks,

Thanks for the help. I finally figured out the reason I couldn't get the special features page to open up was because I had the wrong answer to the question. I sent an email directly to Mr. Fforde and he was kind enough to help me out. I went back through the end of the book and found the answer - somehow I missed it the first time through.

No problem!

As you have probably seen, most of us are more active in Nextian (although expect a mass of posts when there is a "Shades of Grey" thread).

Our Mr. Fforde is a very helpful chap and I can only think of a couple of other authors who take as much interest in their fans. He even posts here occasionally, but seems happy to let our mild-natured anarchy live on pages for which he pays.

Sorry, only registered users may post in this forum.
