Despite what it says all posts here are by me, Farah. I only realised this evening that they are “authored” by EF James. That would be the beloved, the person who spell checks and fact checks my work and also makes sure all the footnotes are formatted properly. This time round he has done so much work on the book that he gets an editorial credit. Fair’s fair.
I’m off to the University of Chichester tomorrow to do a couple of talks, one on Jewish fantasy writing which I first gave in Vienna last year, and which is still very much a work in progress. The other, less formal, is on Heinlein (inevitably). I was asked to send a story in that I wanted to talk about to send in The Green Hills of Earth. I was really touched to find in the next email I received that the story still has the power to move when read for the first time.
