Sorry this is late, but it’s a good one! This countdown photo with Magisterium interior illustrator Scott Fischer, IN THE FLESH. 

We’re outside Tony DiTerlizzi’s fabulous birthday party.

And we got a super-lovely review for Magisterium from School Library Journal!

All his life Callum Hunt has been warned by his father that practicing magic is a guaranteed death sentence, the only certain way to make sure he doesn’t reach his 18th birthday. When Call is summoned to attend the entrance exams for The Magisterium, a more-sinister version of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft & Wizardry, he promises his father he will deliberately fail the test to avoid the dangerous lure of magic school. Unfortunately, magic is in Call’s blood, and though his permanent limp and sarcastic attitude do not appear to serve him well during testing, he is selected with two other “Iron Years” to be a pupil of the greatest mage of all, Master Rufus. Black and Clare have created a unique world in The Magisterium, adroitly sidestepping reader fatigue with the many post- Harry Potter “magical academy” fiction series. The underground school’s labyrinthine tunnels, mysterious caverns, and strange rivers are an alternately wondrous and creepy setting for this hero’s quest. The diverse main trio’s multidimensional portrayals leave aside easy characterizations in favor of complex motivations which add depth to each character. Best of all, a late-stage reveal of the novel’s true hero and villain neatly turn fantasy tropes on their heads. 

Thanks, SLJ :D
