The wonderful moment was captured on video, but I do warn you…it has been known to induce some tears. Congratulations, Ferrett!

PETER NEWMAN and EMMA NEWMAN will be signing at the Forbidden Planet Bristol Megastore on Thursday 30th April from 6 – 7pm!
In Peter’s debut novel, THE VAGRANT, years have passed since humanities destruction emerged from the Breach. The world and its inhabitants have been changed from what they once were.
