I thought it was just a typo but then you talked about anybody hiding behind it being able to see out, presumably because it was loosely-woven wicker. A small point but something to bear in mind for the second edition

Looking forward to your podcast. Break a leg.

I didn't make the point clearly, did I. It actually should be "wicket", i.e., a small door in a larger gate. You wrote "wicker". I'm pretty sure it wasn't a wicker wicket.
