Number two in the Show-Off and Tell feature needs no introduction at all.
A Song of Shadows by the legend that is, John Connolly.
I was lucky enough to pick up this little beauty when Mr Connolly hosted an evening in my home town of Newcastle in April of this year. I hung around afterwards and had a little chat while he signed this for me.
I also met him when he was in town to promote The Wolf in Winter in 2014.
When I met him in April of this year, I thought I would stick my neck out and ask if he would do a short video interview for me and answer The Ten Confessions. Proving what a great guy he is, he said yes immediately and once I had stopped shaking I managed to pull it off.
In case you missed it, the link for the interview is below.
