Neil commented on "Conrad's Fate" on his blog a few days ago:

"Well, it's a Chrestomanci novel. It stars a fifteen-year old  
Christopher Chant, and is told by Conrad, who is rather depressed about  
his fate. It's funny, scary, supremely twisty, and the quintessence of  
what a Chrestomanci novel ought to be. (I think it's about as good as  
Charmed Life and The Nine Lives of Christopher Chant and rather better  
than The Magicians of Caprona . Your mileage may vary.) "

It wasn't only wickedness and scheming that made people unhappy, it was  
confusion and misunderstanding; above all, it was the failure to grasp  
the simple truth that other people are as real as you.
