The Book of the Year 2018

Written by

Following hot on the heels of the success of The Book of the Year (or, more precisely, 12 months later), The Book of the Year 2018 will be making its way into the nation’s bookshops this autumn. Compiled and written by the creators of the award-winning hit comedy podcast No Such Thing As A Fish, all of whom are researchers for QI, The Book of the Year 2018 will bravely delve behind the headlines to sniff out the best and most bizarre facts of the last 12 months. Among many other things, it will establish that: · Britain’s first robot shop assistant was sacked after a week. · Donald Trump claimed the US sells F52 planes to Norway, even though F52 planes only exist in the game Call of Duty. · During the Winter Olympics, it was so windy during the Women’s Slopestyle Final that every single competitor was blown off her snowboard. · A snail racing competition in Plymouth was postponed because the snails were too “sluggish” to take part. Ranging from the distinctly offbeat to the wonderfully ludicrous—from the South Africans who were rationed to just one toilet flush per day, to the Nutella riots spreading across France, via the Miami bitcoin conference that stopped accepting bitcoin—The Book of the Year promises a fact for every occasion and will prove the perfect Christmas gift for all trivia buffs.

About the Author

No Such Thing As A Fish is a team of researchers who work on the BBC TV show QI. Each week they gather together in their Covent Garden office and record a podcast discussing the most interesting facts they’ve discovered over the previous seven days. In the three years since it launched, the show has attracted 1.4 million weekly listeners, won multiple awards, been transformed into the spin-off topical BBC2 TV series No Such Thing As The News, performed a sell-out UK tour, and been named one of iTunes’ top 10 most downloaded podcasts of 2016. The team is made up of James Harkin, Andrew Hunter Murray, Anna Ptaszynski, and Dan Schreiber. James is the head writer on QI, with ten series and five books under his belt. He has also appeared on TV quiz shows Fifteen to One and Only Connect, reaching the semi-finals in the latter and embarrassingly crashing out of the former. Andrew is a writer and comedian who also contributes to Private Eye magazine, is a member of the improv troupe Austentatious, and has staged his own one-man show at the Edinburgh Fringe. Anna is a QI scriptwriter who has previously worked in Scottish politics and Australian advertising, as well as selling fruit wine and hay-baling in the Highlands. She refuses to join Twitter. Dan loves yetis.
