What Will Tomorrow Hold?



Not only on this site, but on the Lemony Snicket official site. (I am forbidden to post the address, since it has links to sites with forums, but shame on you if you can't guess.)


Here's what I got last year in an email from those delightful folks at HarperCollins:


All of us at HarperCollins Children’s Books would like to extend our sincere apologies for yesterday’s surprising public announcement by Lemony Snicket. We discourage our authors from disclosing the contents of a book so far in advance of its publication -- especially a book as highly anticipated as Book the Thirteenth, The End, which will not be released until October 13, 2006.

As a courtesy to dedicated fans, we thought it only fair to share Mr. Snicket’s revelations in an open forum. Below is the key information revealed by Mr. Snicket regarding the upcoming final installment of A Series of Unfortunate Events.

Yes, the Baudelaire siblings’ difficult journey comes to a triumphant end.

Yes, their parents are very happy with their new home.

Yes, Klaus Baudelaire does skip a grade and win a spelling bee.

Yes, Count Olaf gives each of the children a pony.

Yes, Beatrice is actually the hook-handed man.

Yes, they all live happily ever after, a phrase which here means “plus eternity times infinity!!”

Mr. Snicket also revealed that The Beatrice Letters, a collection of personal letters which will be published in September, is full of funny poems and doodles of unicorns.

We hope that none of this information will lessen your interest in Mr. Snicket’s research. Just because everything turns out perfectly in The End certainly does not justify the terrible things that have befallen the Baudelaires over the course of the last twelve books.

Thank you for your support.

Happy April Fool’s Day,


So who knows what tomorrow might hold!


With all due respect,

:vahi: Aanchir: Rachira of Time
