  1. Hi Madeline
    I am reading vN and really liking it enormously – I should explain: I come from a rather different generation and have been reading SF for 50+ years (Shock,horror – old)
    However , I should also point out that the reason I am reading at all at present is because I am on holidays from Limerick School of Art & Design where I am a 1st year student soon to have to make up my mind about painting or printmaking.

    May I come back to you when I have finished the book to talk more?

    Frank Rafter

    ps -just finished ‘Blue Remembered Earth’ by Alastair Reynolds( have read all by him)
