So there’s some mutterings around these parts of doing a sort of Guide to the Uglies Universe. You know what I mean: one of those books full of background data about the people, places, and gadgets of Tally’s world, maybe containing a few diagrams, glossaries, and maps for your fannish perusal.
Holly Black and Tony DiTerlizzi’s Spiderwick Chronicles has the wonderful and richly illustrated Field Guide. Erin Hunter’s Warriors books have a similar companion work, though with more text than pictures.
So what would you guys want in a guide to the Uglyverse? What questions remain unanswered? What background info do you demand?
Here is your chance to ask questions and to list obscure gadgets, slang, places, and characters that you want to know more about.
