Jasper Fforde, who has sold millions of books describing the adventures of his literary detective Thursday Next, explained just why he finds Swindon such a weird and wonderful inspiration for his writing last night.
The first talk by an author at the new central library, a place Fforde described as Swindon's new 'palace of learning'.
The popular novelist talked for just over an hour before answering questions on subjects as typically diverse as Elgin Llamahs (which feature in his books) and his opinion on the possibilities of time travel.
The author also revealing that Swindon will be staying as the location for Thursday Next’s next adventure, due out in 2009 - and all future books.
