The Mythical Pentonvile Toad


The Pentonvile Toad is a mythical beast - pictured here for the first time - that preys on those who are weakened by cold and whose abilities to type are therefore hampered. From the Gallic "Pentonville Eoad", its preferred habitat is a small office on the Pentonville Road where, coincidentally, a small publisher called Snowbooks resides. It is usually spotted when Emma Barnes is typing her office address into yet another webform and she is either in too much of a rush or her fingers are cold. 

Next week: put another lump of coal on the fire, won't you? Summer is over.  


The SnowBlog is one of the oldest publishing blogs, started in 2003, and it's been through various content management systems over the years. A 2005 techno-blunder meant we lost the early years, but the archives you're reading now go all the way back to 2005.

Many of the older posts in our blog archive suffer from link rot. Apologies if you see missing links and images: let us know if you'd like us to find any in particular.
