Brand New Details on J.K. Rowling’s First Not-A-Harry-Potter-Book The Casual Vacancy
from themarysue.com .................... About a month ago, when J.K. Rowling announced that she was moving publishing houses and penning her first novel that wasn’t a part of the Harry Potter series in some way, that was pretty much all we knew. Little, Brown would be putting the book out, it wouldn’t be tied to the Boy Who Lived, and it was going to be written for adults, rather than the children’s or young adult market.
Today, however, Little, Brown has delivered a synopsis, release date, pricing and even a hint at how long the book is going to be on its own website . So read on, for some juicy details on J.K. Rowling’s The Casual Vacancy.
I’m pretty sure I’ve stripped the listing of all its relevant information, but if you’d like to take a look yourself (of course you do) you can right here .
(via Flavorwire ]
"There is also a river called Helikon [in Pieria]. (...) But, they go on to say, the women who killed Orpheus wished to wash off in it the blood-stains, and thereat the River sank underground, so as not to lend its waters to cleanse manslaughter."

Synopsis doesn't sound super awesome, but JK's use of words, completely aside from the story and character in H.P. were great to read. I suspect I'll pay for this.
Frag hard, laugh harder.
