Paul 'Pezski' Perry I'd almost missed this - jut catching up with last week on the iPlayer! What a pleasant surprise!


Bettie☯ Yay! He comes up with some amusing turns of phrase.


Paul 'Pezski' Perry I see you enjoyed Look to Windward. This took the position of my favourite of his books after that being Use of Weapons for some years, so I think you'll like the latter, too.

Look to Winward was very exciting - not so keen on his mainline stuff however kind BBC lets us look at books early and that is all right by me!


Gerald I concur. Check out Transition though.
