My week: Horowitz Crosses Swords With Shan :)

Anthony Horowitz and Darren Shan cross Swords

In his My Week column in the Sunday Times, Anthony Horowitz revealed a (hopefully good-humoured) sparring with Darren Shan...

While I'm in Borders I browse through Darren Shan's new opus, Wolf Island. You may know Shan as a moderately successful writer of horror novels. I'm shocked to discover a character, a mad scientist, named Antoine Horwitzer in his new book.

Antoine, although described as handsome and charming, is soon revealed to be a cad and meets a particularly horrible end. I have known Darren for years, but this is a Jonathan Ross moment where the envelope has been pushed too far.

Fortunately for Darren I'm not the litigious type, but I must draw his attention to a book of mine being published in 2009 - Aaagh: Ten Unusual Ways to Die - and in particular to one story: The Man who Killed Darren Shan. Let's see who has the last laugh.
