Lemony Snicket's site has been updated. The most notable addition is the Vile Videos, the first of which is "12 Books, 120 Seconds" in which Tim Curry (hurray!) recaps the first twelve books in the series in 120 seconds. It looks like there are two more to come. You can watch the first one here.

11:30 pm - The Beatrice Letters

July 2006

Dear Readers,

In less than three months, The End will be here. Will the Baudelaire children survive the last in A Series of Unfortunate Events? Will bookstores everywhere be stormed by angry mobs? Will nobility prevail? Will Beatrice, to whom Lemony Snicket has dedicated every book in A Series of Unfortunate Events, miraculously return? Will the world lie in blubbering ruins?

Alarmingly, one or more of these questions might be answered sooner than you think. On September 5, a matter of weeks before the publication of The End, Lemony Snicket will release The Beatrice Letters, an unbearably private collection of personal correspondence. Including a note passed in class, a startling telegram, a coded sonnet, and a desperate plea for assistance between Mr. Snicket and Beatrice, the trove of evidence starts long before The Bad Beginning and extends far beyond The End.

Thousands have already downloaded and sought to complete “13 Shocking Secrets You’ll Wish You Never Knew About Lemony Snicket,” hoping to be ready for the final installment in A Series of Unfortunate Events. The Beatrice Letters suggests that there is at least one -- and possibly two -- more secrets you need to know.

Don't you wish we hadn't mentioned it?

With all due respect,

Harper Collins Publishers

Hello everyone! I know it's been awhile and things are a little dead around here but out of curiosity is anyone keeping up with lemonysnicket.com? I just went on today and I saw a new 'game' like thing where you have to remember things from other books and they have letters circled etc ... and it leads you to the the thirteenth 'shocking secret' about Lemony Snicket. [There are 12 others and they, along with the last one which I finally figured out, are PUZZLING.] Theres a lot of good stuff there including a map of all the characters in the books relating them to each other.

It seems like the last book is just called 'The End'? I find that somewhat disappointing but also very Snicket-esque. Anyway I just wanted to put it out there that there is more information to be read, and if anyone's having trouble with the clues for the last secret, I have the whole thing/each individual answer.

The end is near!

11:35 pm - New Here

I'm new here. I'm almost done book 4, but I know that I will love the rest of them. I went out and bought them a few days ago. I'm going to see the movie now that I've read 1-3.

current mood: drugged up

5:52 pm - (Is this allowed?)

I haven't read the new book. I have moved countries so I haven't gotten the book immediately but I'll get it tomorrow. I don't know if my VFD theories have been discussed before or if they're obvious or if I missed it or what, so I don't think there'll be any Penultimate Peril spoilers behind the cut.

*the cut* with the VFD theories.Collapse )

Don't claim my theories as your own!
Don't spoil the new book for me in the comments, either.

7:16 pm - At the next-to-last second.......

In just a little bit I will sadly race to my cheerless book store and force myself to purchase a certain melancholy book. I will use cold coins, because paper money will just get wet with my copious tears.

BEFORE I BUY MY NAMELESS BOOK, I have a question for all of you.

Do you harbor any hope that one of the Baudelaire's parents are alive??

Some think that Quigly was the mysterious survivor of the fire mentioned in book 8, but I still have high hopes.

And if there IS a survivor of the Baudelaire fire, I am SURE it is the mother. In The Slippery Slope Lemony Snicket assures us that the dead men in their lives, Jaques Snicket and their father, would never rise again.

What do you think?

1:23 pm - *sigh*

How should we, who abjure spoilers, whittle away the hours before The Nameless Novel is named, and appears on bookshelves?

Shall we count up the letters in this clue and trust the tittle to The Littlest Elf?

Shall we follow the link to the Very Flawed (morraly) Dealer (of books) and find out what the actual title is?

I, for one, will pass my time in more erudite ways.

Just two days ago I found this fun little game. I suggest you play it now. It will keep you amused during these difficult times.

This is mine:

Good Stuff

Are you bothered by inopportune snow gnats? Do you feel Carmelita-like every day? Does your cake-sniffer hurt? Then THE VERY FINE DOOHICKEY is for you! This carnivorous, penultimate treat is chock-full of wasabi.

Here is what Duncan Quagmire of Village of Fowl Devotees, Mount Fraught had to say about THE VERY FINE DOOHICKEY. "I start every day with THE VERY FINE DOOHICKEY. It's simply erstatz! Even my tap-dancing ballerina fairy princess veterinarian loves it"

Don't delay! Buy THE VERY FINE DOOHICKEY today!

G'day, voulenteers!

Well, with three days to go until Book the Twelfth comes out, most people are in one of two camps. The first of these is the "Three days to go; isn't it exiting?" camp. The other camp frantically ferret through the internet for spoilers, knowing that as they do so, they will spoil the ending for themselves, but simply can't help themselves. I am ashamed to say that I am in the second group. I thought I should share this link for those who, like me, want to know what will happen. Spoilers include a picture of the cover, including the title, and a link in the comments to a synopsis of the first few chapters.

With all due respect,


The world is quiet here.

This has probably been discussed before . . but is anyone familiar with the lyrics of this song? It's from an album released in 1988 - well before the Lemony Snicket books - but it's very intriguing nonetheless. Just thought I'd share . . .

Hurricane Olaf churning through Pacific waters. Interestingly enough, the storm's shape is rather elongated...

3:24 pm - first post

hello, i'm new to this community, etc. etc.

i am in the middle/end of the hostile hospital. i have to say that all this anagram talk got me thinking...

is esme's name an anagram?

i looked at her whole name

esme gigi genevieve squalor  

and i notice that you can get "quagmire" out of that, but outside of that, i am stuck. maybe someone else has an idea about it, or maybe it's really just a coincidence

regardless, i just thought that was interesting.
