I keep forgetting to say so here, but when I was in Cambridge a couple of months ago, I discovered that The Haunted Bookshop (9 St. Edward's Passage, Tel (01223)312913) had a positive plethora
of Forest books for sale. These may have been sold since I was there, as they don't seem to be listed on the website
, but I doubt it, as there were absolute loads of them (including several copies of The Ready-Made Family and Attic Term, a copy of Peter's Room and many more besides) and they were all alarmingly expensive, being mostly first editions in good condition. If anyone is pining to complete their collection and feeling prosperous, you might want to give them a call.
Speaking of AF publications, wasn't there meant to be a CD or book or some such of the proceedings of the conference last year? I know I put my name down for something along these lines - does anyone know what's happened?
ADDENDUM I: Just read back a few entries and saw that the now-deleted lizarfau
mentioned a falling out between AF and Tim Kennemore (whom I noticed dedicated one of her books to AF. Always wondered whether her real name was Thalia...) Ooer! Now I'm all curious. If lizarfau
is still reading this, how did you know about this falling out?
ADDENDUM II: Aha! Just did a search on the Haunted Bookshop website, and found the other Forests. There's 'Falconer's Lure', both Players books, and 'Run Away Home' as well.
