Amazon is Weird

If you are interested in seeing something a bit. . . disturbing, go to and type in "Chrestomanci quartet."  Then hit search.  The
second result should be _The Chronicles of Chrestomanci, Volume 1_.  It
comes complete with a brief quote, called an excerpt.  I find Amazon's
choice of excerpt to be quite amusing, but, yes, disturbing.  It really
could give someone completely the wrong idea about the book.

I tried just typing in "Chronicles of Chrestomanci," but that didn't give
me the excerpt.  So do it the way I originally did it to make sure it
works ;-).
