Well, I wasn't expecting that! Thank you to everyone who has and is still contributing to my post on history and sff. Fascinating discussion and very good-humoured, too. Hello and welcome to all the new people. I shall be in and out of lj for the next few days, as we have guests over the weekend and my access to web-time will be limited. But I am not ignoring what's being said and I will be back, I promise.
