KJ, it appears you put a lot of time and thought into choosing my books. I'm more grateful than you can know. (And relieved as well: a couple of Santas I looked seemed to have chosen books completely at random, so I'd honestly steeled myself to expect, I dunno, a pop-up edition of a Tom Clancy book along with a guru-self-help thingy.) It's wonderful to be getting books so varied, and I look forward to all of them. I don't know why I've never read Kon Tiki, but now I'm eager to read it. . . and I'd resolved not to learn anything about the other two--so that there would still be that element of surprise--but of course, you can't possibly expect people not to check out a tag like 'teuthology'. Squid + apocalypse. Ooh, delish. Can't wait. Dark medical history with a delicate touch: from the sound of that, my cup of tea. Would you like me to let you know when the books arrive?

Give us a shout next time you're over and I'll stand you a pint. Myself, I'd always thought that if I were compelled to live over there again I'd want to live in Maine: rugged coast, forests, much snow. Yes indeed. (And my most hallucinatory travel memory is of Maine: a late-night bleary-eyed encounter with an unaccountably enraged transvestite and a chap who trained big cats--Peter's Candlelighter Cafe was My Most Memorable Bus Stop.)

Your photo--whenever I come across one of those moronic 'When Will We See the Great American Novel?' columns, I shout 'It's already been written!'

Again, thanks so much.
Thanks for picking Charroxx's books. They look great! And all the suggestions will be useful when she needs another good book to read.
Welcome to LT from a fellow Robertson Davies fan! He is such a brilliant and clever author - I've read almost everything he's written. Keep warm and happy reading!
