Goodreads asked Tom Shutt:

Where did you get the idea for your most recent book?

Tom Shutt Murder Sidhe Wrote was inspired from watching a whole bunch of the TV show Misfits and just having the punny book title in my head. I wondered about all the ways I've seen ordinary humans turned into extraordinary creatures in modern fantasy, and then tried to come up with something new.

BAM! Costume party. Witch's spell. Everyone becomes what they're dressed as, and it's a big problem for the fairy police in charge of regulating the supernatural community.
