When I was asked to do a post promoting the 30th Anniversary I was very excited and said yes straight away. Sometimes the oldest stories really are the best. So whether you are an old fan or someone discovering the story for the first time, sit back and enjoy it and treasure a story that will last for all time.
Whether you decide to go to the cinema or pick up a copy of the DVD, or even snuggle down with the original novel, however you immerse yourself, enjoy it 'As You Wish'. 

A huge thank you to the promoters of this campaign for my free copy of the book and Anniversary edition of the DVD.
