I’ve got the perfect plot for a scary novel.
A best selling fantasy novelist, Terby Goodkidd keeps saying rude and daft things about the cover art on his latest book. Little does he know that fantasy cover artists are all actually members of a secret magical society – the occult Libri Operimentum Artifex.
Angered by Goodkidd’s antics, the Libri Operimentum Artifex curse all his books. Now every cover of every one of his books is just hideously coloured random aardvarks.
Eventually he goes mad and attempts to kidnap aardvarks from a local zoo.
