News

Just a brief note here - since theoretically I'm on holiday - I've been awarded a grant from the SF Foundation, which will enable me to travel to the University of Liverpool and spend a few days in the library accessing the SF Collection. If I can arrange some time off from work, I hope to go up in mid-to-late September - this means I'll be able to read some of the novels I've got on my reading list for a couple of my forthcoming writing projects. This, of course, is hugely helpful as I've been struggling to find some books I wanted to read (although I'm still stuck for access to Suzy McKee Charnas' The Bronze King and its 2 sequels - doesn't anyone possess this trilogy ? (Perhaps all copies have fallen into L-Space ?) Anyway I'm very grateful to the SFF - and hope to repay their generosity in due course.

Congrats, Michele!
I'm more of a MG person, so I don't have your sequels. But, good luck! I'm sure you'll do well.

Thanks... It may be too early in the morning, but what's MG ? (Sorry it is early still here, and I haven't yet eaten breakfast, which definitely impairs my thinking !)

Oh, it's Middle-Grade. Meaning I don't know young adult literature very well. Sorry to speak in code.

I had a look on Amazon...they have the Bronze King and other books by her there at the mo

Ah Middle Grade - teacher speak ! Thanks for explaining that Kelly.

Yes I am aware Jo, that Amazon have the McKee books - but I don't have the money to buy everything I want to read - nor the space to store the books (living in a tiny attic as I do) - I meant don't any libraries have them for me to borrow to read ?
