Grant Morrison returned to the Edinburgh Book Festival, this time as one of the star attractions of the Stripped programme, and still with those record breaking signing queues!
Laura Sneddon, whom we claim as our own and have dubbed ‘Sneddsy’ against her protestations, today has an interview with Grant Morrison up on The Guardian’s website.
