The Flash Clash Begins

Top bloke Rob from RobAroundBooks has officially started his Flash Clash challenge.

He’ll be reading Not So Perfect alongside one of (the master) Etgar Keret’s, David Gaffney’s and Alex Burrett’s books and rating them as he goes.

I think it such a brilliant idea.

And a little terrifying. (As I said to Adnan Mahmutovic on my Facebook Fan page thingy earlier, I do feel a bit like Luke going up against Vader.)

But mostly, it’s really brilliant.

Anyway. He’s posted the first round’s results. And I’m not doing all that bad.

Let’s hope that continues…

    What do you mean, not doing all that bad!?! you're neck to neck with Etgar Keret, for god sake, you have been rated equal to genius/master/god of flash

    I'm loving all of the support your putting behind this one Nik. If only all authors were as optimistic.Hang on! You're not…emmmm….trying to influence my voting are you? Only joking Nik

    Ha! You know what, and I'm being utterly honest here – I think the flash clash is just a really, really f*****g cool idea. And I'm thrilled to be a part of it, I really am (and that'd be the same were my book not involved). And as much as I'd like to be able to influence it (and win!) what means more is that you're doing it and I think I'm more curious than anything to see how all the collections stack up against each other. Of course I'd LOVE to win, naturally! :)Thanks for doing it, Rob. Big time!Nik
