Serial soap writer grips nation in 'what will happen' fever!

The nation is gripped in a fever to know what will happen to Pip, known to the Literati as Phillip Pirrip of course; in Great Expectations, the brand new serialised novel by our most famous of novelists Mr Charles John Huffham Dickens.

Mr Dickens's novel, entitled 'Great Expectations' centres on Pip, the young hero, from his terrible encounter with the escaped convict Magwitch (see Crime on this front page) at the side of his parents' grave through his unrequited love for Estella; the terrible fate of Miss Havisham to Pip's encounters with Newgate Gaol. The public are agog to know what happens in the final instalment but Mr Dickens is keeping mum on the subject and all offers to publish the ending in National Press was angrily refused by the novelist. He will stay with his preference for publishing his works through weekly newspapers he says.

The celebrated author does not take kindly to giving interviews to news reporters as he has been in dispute over the copyright to the printing of his work.
