About Mark Newton

Born in 1981, live in the UK. I write about strange things.


  1. Wow. They seem quite serious about that.

  2. Funnily enough, I’ve got a few seriously old books — from the 1920’s — that have a similar notice on them, for sale only in Europe. Which only goes to show that restrictions are nothing new — it’s just that publishers used to be less able to implement them.

    What’s that? I can get it here for only $196?

    As a cash-strapped American, I feel excluded.

  4. Ah shucks! That was on my TBR list, too. 🙂

    Jonathan – never mind, your circuits will remain shoddy…

    TK – It’s all right, the ending was rubbish anyway.
