Another crackpot idea becomes real thanks to the internet

Make Custom Gifts at CafePress

If you feel the need to advertise your love of the author of The Moonstone and Woman in White publicly (albeit slightly cryptically), you can now get the "official" (?) Wilkie Collins readalong shirt from CafePress. There's one design up with a quote on the back, and of course I can put one up with whatever you want, if only you will tell me.

 I suppose I should add that this is only for fun and to gratify the people of Twitter who liked the idea; it's not my intention to make any money off of this (or in life generally, really, or so it sometimes seems). They don't make it easy but I have tried to set the markup to $0 across the shop.


  1. THis is a fantastic idea! I didn't join either readalong, but I might buy the paraphernalia.

  2. Good gravy, that is too awesome.

  3. I'm still pondering the utter perfection of that shot glass. I think Wilkie would be proud.

    1. The shot glass came up as the default item to display first, which was obviously so appropriate that I didn't even try to figure out how to change it.

  4. There is, indeed, a tract for that.

    Genius. I tip my bonnet to you, my dear! But not enough to show off my cap ribbons. Get your mind out of the gutter!
