I came across the Survivor Library earlier this week, and thought how useful a resource it could be for the next great dystopian/apocalyse novel (which won't be written by me!). The Library works...than just building a pyre. I think I'd like to learn how to build a steam engine, though. Anyhow, if ever you should need to know how to build a wagon or keep bees, this site may be for you. Enjoy
10:45 to 19:00 of the interview , dealing with Sutcliff's work as a painter, her first books, her only relationship, and her writing. RP: When you were I think about fourteen, you went to art school...written to me about, but I have once or twice made an error, which has almost invariably been picked up by a sixth form schoolboy.

I am a sucky mod. It is what it is. I'm never sure who, if anybody, still sees this journal anyway (although we have had a few member posts lately, so Yay! for that). However, this article on proofreading...the eagle-eyed silk_labyrinth . Actually, I had two typos in the title - Thanks to pickamix for pointing out that my "fix" hadn't really fixed anything. Murphy's Law at work, folks
sineala pointed out that Blood and Sand is currently free on US Amazon (not...what I would have chosen as a Sutcliff teaser, but okay, it's also not the Sutcliff I would have chosen to adapt...that went up on Amazon UK several months ago, although not all the same books (still no The Shining Company for US buyers, grrr). Past experience suggests it's wise to grab ebooks while you can..
