To all Admirals, Commodores, Captains and Commanders of Households:

 You are hereby required and directed, if resident in or near Durban, to proceed with all speed in order to attend without fail the following engagement with a    man-of-war    aircraft carrier   battleship    battle cruiser    frigate    gunboat     pirate schooner and launch:

Direct your vessel to the following co-ordinates:

29°49’36.24” S
31°00’47.29” E

You should arrive prepared for action at any time between 10h00 and 15h00 on Friday, 17th June 2011.

The vessel to be attacked is the Adams Booksellers flagship, in the Musgrave Centre Fleet, which will attempt to overcome you with salvoes of bloggers’ books.

If resident in KZN and owning a fast car or superbike, the same orders apply.

For those anywhere else with access to a handy Lear Jet or similar, the same orders apply.

Signed for the Lords of the Admirability (-in-Writing),

Hugh Bettah-Beatheh.

(Seriously, any bloggers who would like to meet Colonialist and kalinka, and see the brilliant first novel of Arkenaten, would be most welcome. You will only be expected to buy books if you really, really, really want to – otherwise your arm will be twisted to abstain!)

P.S.  *excitedly*  See the book at the top of my badges?  Well …
*glumly* it won’t be there.   We couldn’t get it out in time.  Coming, though!
