It's Friday. Here is some stuff we like:

1) We're very proud and excited to be the Australian home of Celine Kiernan and her wonderful Moorehawke trilogy. The first book, The Poison Throne, is out here in September, and the fabulous Elise Hurst is busy creating beautiful cover art for our edition. In the meantime, check out Celine's blog, where she announces the very exciting news that she has been shortlisted for two (not 1, but 2!!) categories in the Irish Book Awards. Well done, Celine, and welcome to the House of Onion!

2) Not book-related, but cool anyway. The Big Picture is 'news stories in photographs' from the Boston Globe. The photography is always amazing - and by-turns heartrending, beautiful, creepy, inspiring or funny. Check out these made of cool shots of Earth Hour around the world. (Be sure to click the images to see the lights fade.)

3) The Walker Books illustrated classics are hawt.

4) Holy cow. A tea set?

5) Our hometown. The coolness. Even cooler, ThreeThousand reviewed Special Kev! We are so hip.

6) Winning hearts and minds with web design.

7) It's raining! (And thundering!)

Thanks so much, Onions! I'm delighted to be part of the cake-eating, book reading onion house ( and thrilled to have Elise Hurst on my side! WOW! Dream-come-true)
