Patrick, I ended up buying Solaris as an ebook for a reasonable price. It is an unusual book.
I have been reading the works of Lovecraft lately. They are strangely addictive.

Stuart | 37 comments I just read a short story from a fragment by Emily Bronte and re-edited by Joanna Russ (of the "Female Man" and "Alix" fame). Its called "The Death of Augusta" and appears in Jessica Amanda Salmonson's first "Amazons" fantasy anthology from 1979. The British Library dates Emily Brontes original manuscript from 1837.

"The Brontes invented imaginary countries...Angria, set in Africa [and] four kingdoms which together made an island in the North Pacific: Gondal, cold, mountainous, rugged, full of lakes, forests and rocky heath...The central figure of Emily's Gondal was a woman: Augusta Geraldine Almeda (sometimes called Rosina of Alcona) royal, passionately ambitious, strong, beautiful and eventually Queen of Gondal."
