This is rather lovely. I managed to get up to 49 before my vocabulary deserted me. Give it a try.

I'm envious; I hit 49 and then I spent all evening trying to get back over 45 as my IQ collapsed, but who cares?. Isn't this such a simple, wonderful thing? I've seen some of the crappy and hateful stuff that's on the internet, and my heart just does a vertical takeoff when I see something like this.

Damn! I knew I should have been reading Kipling instead of Heinlein!

Nooooo! You should have been reading *both* ;)

I found my love of golden age sci-fi stood me in good stead when the word Tellural came up; I knew what it meant thanks to E.E. "Doc" Smith's Lensman books.

I know what you mean about `Tellural.' I can't ever remember seeing it anywhere but the Lensman novels.

Still haven't read Kipling, although someone keeps recommending Kim as I'm interested in the history of the Great Game.

By the way, welcome, killingtime.

Thanks for the kind welcome.

In complete honesty, it was my love of sci-fi and fantasy in general that led me to your blog in the first place... I was actually searching for somewhere I could buy myself two books that I've fond memories of reading back in the early '80s, namely "Thumbprints" and "Torn Air" :-)

In amongst the links to Amazon and various second-hand bookshops that a search for the combination of your name plus those titles produced, was a link to here. I suspect that I may hang around!

Good lord, the things you can do with this internet thing, eh? The books still turn up in odd places, although I haven't looked for them myself for a few years. Torn Air is the better book, but thank you for your kind words about them both. You're more than welcome to stick around.
