Justine Larbalestier Toys With Our Affections

Yesterday, Justine Larbalestier announced that the single greatest title of all time -- Magic! Magic! Magic! Oi! Oi! Oi! -- would not actually be appearing on her upcoming book. Instead something called Magic’s Child would finish up her debut YA trilogy. And my heart was broken.

Today, she says that Magic! Magic! Magic! Oi! Oi! Oi! was never going to be the real title, and that it’s been her working title before. But, more importantly, she opens the door to an actual Magic! Magic! Magic! Oi! Oi! Oi! appearing one of these days. And, if we're all really good, it might even have the mangosteen cricket fairy in it, too. (So now I'll just sit here and wait.)

Maybe Magic! Magic! Magic! Oi! Oi! Oi! would make the perfect title for an omnibus of the three novels?

Hm. You just might have an idea there...
