If you put the tea in front of me, I’ll drink it.

I was going to write about formative science fiction reading experiences, and how wonderful it is to be free of the idea of genre, but I can’t find a non-blurry picture of the cover of The Happy Planet, by Joan Clarke, so until I can persuade my sister to find the book and take a picture of it, that post will have to wait.

It’s raining now, and the city is awash in slush.
