I haven't asked his wife what he wrote on it, because I've no idea how to, I don't want to be a nuisance, and, worse still, I might discover he only ever wrote The Steamboat Race on it. Not a big fan.

But thanks for your congrats, pal!
i think i can ease your fears on the steamboat race, i have been informed that that was written on mine. i was going to read all of his books but i think this one i will give a miss as the person that informed me also was not keen .

Re: John Brunner- A brag.

Disaster! I'd completely forgotten about that last bit in Zanzibar! Mine isn't the 250, its a slightly, very slightly, later model, so he could not have written Z on it (Well, maybe the second or third draft but, hey, I could just be kidding myself here!).

Oh well, I can only hope he wrote The Sheep look up on it!


Good luck with sticking a piccy up. It took me ages to work out how to do it, as well.

'NEVER UNDERESTIMATE THE STUPIDITY OF EDITORS'

hehe - I wonder if he wrote The Dramaturgies of Yan on that one.

Nice find that.
