Garth Nix and Sean Williams signing Have Sword Will Travel
Garth Nix and Sean Williams will be signing Have Sword Will Travel: Magic, Dragons and Knights at the Forbidden Planet London Megastore on Wednesday 24th October from 4 - 5pm
Odo (seventh child of the village miller) and Eleanor (always looking for adventure) stumble upon a sword in a dried-up river outside their village. Eleanor (strong and able) tries to extract the sword but is unable to, and it is Odo who is surprisingly successful. It is even more surprising that the sword, once pulled free, starts to talk. And rather annoying when the talking sword turns out to be rather grumpy, stubborn, and, at times, catastrophically wrong.
