For questions, comments, concerns, criticism, or effusive praise of my magnificence, DM me @BatJamags. Actually, the latter should be done frequently and highly publicly, but I won’t be offended if you also tell me how great I am privately.
And actually there’ll be plenty of time for Questions in the actual book clubs, but only during Charlton weeks.
