Oh man. We won. It’s so weird. None of us really expected to win. Everyone was wearing suits and had speeches prepared but us. I know I’m riding on the goodwill of all the fans of the show Pat created and I am so grateful to all the fans who are into the books! Thanks to Pat for giving me this amazing gig, Whitney at boom for making this possible and Amalia for being an awesome writer on this series!! Cara for drawing the Anna stories in the continuing series and Danielle for helping me color and punch up my Greg stories!

…I agreed to write books about terrible things that were happening to children over and over again and then publish them under a ridiculous name. I thought the whole thing was certainly going to be a commercial disaster.

Most names in ASOUE are historical or litterary references. I was wondering if you had any idea as to why DH chose to name the main villain Olaf. Is there a hidden reference? Thank you for your amazing work :)

Count Olaf is most likely an allusion to Count Olaf Labinski, a character in Theophile Gautier’s short story “Avatar”. Olaf is a heroic, charming, handsome nice man who’s got a huge personal fortune and the undying devotion of his wife whom the protagonist lusts after. So basically he’s everything the Count Olaf from “The Bad Beginning” is not.

Please also note that Charles Baudelaire’s “Les Fleurs du Mal”, the book which inspired the entirety of the series and is directly quoted in “The End”, is dedicated to his friend Theophile Gautier. To top it all, Charles Baudelaire was also Edgar Allan Poe’s official French translator.

But suffice to say that when the young heroes of my books find themselves feeling lost and helpless in a chaotic world they are powerless to understand, the author is not engaging in empathy.  He is engaging in identification.

There's one thing I don't understand. In the Beatrice letters we see that Lemony and Beatrice wrote to each other even as children, but she always signed her letters as Beatrice Baudelaire, long before she married Bertrand. Did they have the same surname or am I missing something? It's very possible, as I read the books a long ago. Anyway, sorry I've this has been brought up before, it got me curious. Thank you so much! -L.

Don’t thank me, volunteer! Thank Daniel Handler for bringing us together in one surly if inquisitive fan community.

This article (Link) about the characters’ genealogy may interest you. It makes a case for Bertrand actually taking his wife’s family name once married. Apparently Snicket could very well be Lemony’s mother’s name, too! And Friday also seems to have been named after her mother’s family rather than her father’s. The series has strong feminist themes and it would make sense if characters had some leeway about family names once they got married.
