Sue, thanks for the invite to join your group. I appreciate that. Plus, I saw the comments about hard cover books and print books, in general. I'm in the camp that loves the feel of a book in hand, carrying one in a bag and find the electronic screens, mini and large, tiring to the eyes. Somehow I feel that like the cave dweeler who drew a story on the cave's walls, that print books will have more endurance than electronic devices that will be dead and unresponsive when their batteries or sufficient solar powr is gone. Small comfort to curl up with a Blackberry.
Hi, Sue: Thanks for writing back. If you like The Plum, you'll be gaga for Chalice. I hope you'll give me a try. Sorry for the late reply; been traveling for business. Looking forward to lots of great chatter.
Oops! Got my dates wrong about the Korean stint. Jolly graduated from high school in 1954 (me, in 1953), so it was a couple of years later that he came back to Oregon. I have never been good with numbers.
Too young for Korea. My service was in the late 1950s.
Today I met Ian Rankin who is in Melbourne & had a brief talk. Very pleasant & informative. Maybe Rebus will make a comeback from his retirement, as a part-timer. All the best, marshall browne
