I'm very glad for you, Catherine. That's good news.

About the time that Ted's extraordinary stint of managing the TARS Stall came to an end he made a visit to Oz, and we caught up outside Canberra for a meal. It was great to meet the chap who'd been handling my maps for the Stall so well and for so long. But I regret we've lost touch since then. So when you're speaking to him next please do pass on my best regards.

It doesn't matter now, but a late thought came to me that an archival copy should have been lodged with the British Library. But an inspection of my copy of the AP book The Twilight Years: Hill Top (for which I drew the endpapers) shows no ISBN information in the front matter; and this leads me to believe that its existence is not known of outside the world of TARS. Here in Oz I believe it would have been obliged to have been catalogued and an archival copy lodged with the National Library. Maybe the system works differently in the UK? In any case, if Amazon Publications does not keep its own archive of everything it produces I would say it's failing in its publishing duty...
