quiet cul-de-sac in an idyllic Cambridgeshire village,

You're from Cambs too!? That makes you and Miss Lyle. I wonder what it is about our area that makes people so prone to writing?

As "prone" means "lying face down" and "prostrate", perhaps this is a question that should be left unanswered. :rolleyes::eek::)



(Though this might explain "something akin to Sherlock Holmes meets Firefly". ;):))

That's nothing, TI... we genre scribes and scribblers have irregular gatherings in a Cambridgeshire pub, usually once every six weeks or so.

Anne came along to the last one, while the regular attendees include, in addition to yours truly:
Eric Brown (whom I give a lift to as he lives just ten minutes from me) Eric Brown
Chris Beckett Chris Beckett's Fiction
Una McCormack Amazon.co.uk: Una McCormack: Books
Rebecca J Payne (whose first ever short story sale came 4th in the 2009 Interzone reader's poll)
Ian Watson (okay, he's not local, unlike the above three, all of whom live in Cambridge)
and, on occasion,
Kari Sperring Amazon.co.uk: kari sperring: Books (another Cambridge resident).

Cambridgeshire is clearly a hotbed for speculative fiction! :)

And, Mouse, no way I'm even going there!
