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.

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