Mark,

I am so glad you can make this post. At times I was worried that you wouldn't.

I hope that those of us that didn't abandon you managed to act as some encouragement for you.

I can understand how much you had to work at it, and how difficult it must have been and still is for you.

I'm still cheering you on and sending all the strength I can to continue.

That's torn it - to try to stop Nyan Cat echoing round my head, I started to think of other songs, and quickly got to Mahna Mahna Do-Do-De- Dahdah, now that's stuck!!!

I will keep my fingers crossed too and hope for the best possible outcome.


I think a sharp right turn then a spiral path over water followed by Jose etc. would be the best , if unlikelyest outcome.

We've just heard from our son, near Orlando.

All the shops and Parks are closed. Holidaymakers are heading North. Light rain atm. They've been told to expect the main risk to be between 18:00 tonight and 06:00 tomorrow.

They're staying in their home, and they've lowered the water level in their pool by about 6 inches as it's close to the house (I'm not too sure this is enough). Their previous home had storm shutters, but he decided not to get them for this home (I hope they don't regret this choice.) They've cut the trees in their front and back gardens down and hoping for the best.

We're both thinking of them

My thoughts go out to all in that area.

Especially to my step-son, his wife and their children just outside Orlando in Florida. I hope that Irma steps aside from there.

Anne McCaffrey's Whiite Dragon was the first paperback in the UK to have a 1 Million copy first print run. I had (I think I still have somewhere) a copy of it sighed by the author 2 days before it went on General Release. (She came to a meeting of a Pern-orientated S.F. Book that I and a friend ran in the UK, she was in the UK for the book launch)

A lovely lady and very keen to meet her fans. RIP

For me, Heinlein, Asimov, Clarke, EEDoc Smith are all greats and I frequently re-read them.

In addition, the Sector General books by James White I enjoy, also the Dorsai series.

For a bit of light escape, I dip into the Perry Rhodan series (not hard SF, but light relief)

Currently I have about 2000 SF paperbacks across most of the spectrum, from Poul Anderson via Terry Pratchett and Anne McCaffrey to Roger Zelazny.

I was lucky for my English Literature 'O' Level exam, I had Fahrenheit 451, The Chrysalids, and another SF book that I can't remember atm. I had read both of the ones that I remember, but didn't really like the last one that I can't.
