Good news! Courtesy of drinkerthinker, we've got the 411 on Bob Brier's upcoming TV appearance. You can catch Mummy Detective: Crypt of the Medici on TLC on October 17 (this coming Sunday) at 9pm. Here's a writeup on the presentation. You can find the TLC schedule information here, but I don't recommend it because navigating the TLC/Discovery website sucks.
In other news, did anyone else read The Butterfly Ball as a kid? I recently flipped through my old copy and it was pretty damned crazy. It's a book of children's verse about various animals and insects on their way to attend the Butterfly Ball, and it has some of the most astounding color plates I've ever seen. You can get an idea of the illustrations here. They remind me of the intricate illustrations from Kit Williams' Masquerade, only with a strange subtle glow.
