Derek Landy, author of Skulduggery Pleasant (voted the Irish Book of the Decade), is here to talk about his life, his work, and his plans to build his own private munchkin army, just in case.... In case you’ve been living underground, Skulduggery Pleasant is a wise- cracking detective, a powerful magician and a master of dirty tricks (all for the greater good, of course). He’s also the ally, protector and mentor of Stephanie Edgley, a very unusual twelve-year-old. Oh yeah, and he’s dead. But you knew that, right? If you’re nice to Derek he might give you the lowdown on the ninth and – gasp! – final Skulduggery installment, due out this summer.
