Presumably I’d summon him via a spell in an old book…
1. Firstly I’d wish for a signed first edition of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. Obviously because I love Harry Potter and not because I could sell it at auction for tens of thousands of pounds…*innocent face*
2. Next I would wish for Libba Bray to be given the ability to write her brilliant books really quickly so that I don’t have to wait long for the next two sequels to The Diviners.

9. And tangentially, I’d like a TARDIS in my flat to serve as my library.
