It’s quite fortunate that I’ve been languishing in the ridiculous luxury of Cape Kidnappers and attending to other writerly duties for the past four days, because I haven’t had the opportunity to get too anxious about the launch of The Emerald Tablet tomorrow. You know what it’s like when something you’ve been anticipating and looking …
