Steward Setback Saturday: Why the IVA is not Buying "Bryony"

Why the Irish Vampire Association is not Buying "Bryony"

A message from Ed Calkins, the Steward of Tara:

Remember the IVA's demands for the books release?

Jugding by the book's exclusion from the best sellers' list, I think it's obvious that the IVA is not buying the book for equally obvious reasons. For those who are not IVA members, I'll explain the paradox.

The burden of secrecy with the IVA is greater than with any other secret society. An IVA member much also keep his/her membership unknown to other IVA members (unless you thing you're Ed Calkins).

I will not confirm or deny its existance, but imagine the difficultly conecting to an IVA meeting. Now imagine what owning a copy of  Bryony might do to raise suspicions among other secret members.

However, by outing the members' reason for not buying the book, perhaps I've freed members to do just that, as not having a copy could now be equally suspicous.
