Britons of all ages might now spurn the traditional festival of Guy Fawkes Night in favour of the more glamorous, and admittedly safer, American traditional of Halloween (pumpkins, costumes, trick or treating, and all that jazz).

From now, Monday 2nd November, until Friday 6th November, the Kindle editions of both If Pigs Could Fly and Game Night will be priced at 99p in the UK and 99c in the US, down from their standard prices of (£1.99 / $2.99).
