I hope he doesn't mind me doing this, but our newest villager, marlowe1, is having a bit of a cash-flow situation right now and he's auctioning off some stuff on eBay. I know Christmas is coming up and all, but maybe we can pop over there and put in some bids and help out? The auction's here. I'm going to bid for something, once I work out how to do it. Hands off the Ellison books, by the way!

I was a huge Ellison fan when I was younger. That was a very long time ago, by the way. Then all of a sudden you couldn't easily get his stuff in bookshops and I lost touch with his work.

Oh, bloody hell. It's beginning to look as if I might win the first of my bids . . .

Not if I have anything to do with it. Incidentally, it's an absolute bastard trying to register on eBay, isn't it? It took me all afternoon and part of this evening.

I registered years ago. My own difficulty was remembering what e-mail address I had when last I bid for anything on eBay . . .

Yes, I had a thought at the back of my head that I had registered a couple of years ago, when I was curious about eBay, but I tried all the likely eddresses and passwords and nothing let me in, so I had to set up another account. Took ages.

Oh, hell, I can't bear the excitement: eight minutes to go and, unless someone snipes, I've won. I'd better go to the Chinese takeaway to soothe my thrumming heart.

Dang. I won.

Actually, it's a book I've been wanting to read, so I'm by no means upset!
