Given the amount of love out there right now for all things NEVERWHERE, I thought I should point out that Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab have a Neverwhere line of scents. Smell like the Marquis de Carabas (A splash of bay rum, leather, dusty black wool, massoia bark, and opium residue), or like Door, or like a Floating Market (A cacophony of curious scents: copaiba balsam, petitgrain, citrus rind, sinicuichi accord, betel nut, wasabi root, coconut palm, and wattleseed layered atop innumerable strange herbs, spices, and woods.) or Night’s Bridge or one of twelve different magical wonderful scents.

And the best bit of it is the scents benefit the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund. This is a good thing.
There aren’t a lot of photographs of me aged 23 as a starving young journalist in London. But I just noticed that I had this in the office here, and scanned it from my British Library Reading Room card.
I was not even wearing black yet. Even the leather jacket was grey.
