I’ve had a marvelous Christmas, with both Alec and Todd here at the celebratory weekend. They each brought a daughter a-piece… So it’s been quite a reunion, since Gigi and my grandson, Owen, already live here in Ireland, not far from me. Many Happy Returns for me.
I’ve had many Christmas cards from fans so let me take this opportunity to thank all of you for your good wishes and to wish the same to you. This is the Chinese year of the Ox… I don’t think they get on all that well with sleepy Fire Tigers like me but I’ll respect them if they charge by me.
I would also like to take this occasion to recommend Robin McKinley’s latest book, titled Chalice… It is an amazing story as well as a beautiful one. All of her books are certainly fine but this one is unusually so.
All the best for 2009… Which we all of us need.
Ciao, Anne McCaffrey, Grand Master 2005!
