I’ve deleted that post about the free ‘Green Linnet”. Amazon appear to have an uncorrected version. I’ll need to re-upload. My apologies if you find you have a poor copy. This publishing lark can be a tedious business. So easy to make a mis-step.

    As I once heard someone say when asked why they had made a mistake – “Do you think it’s perhaps because I’m human”?

    The road to wisdom? Well, it’s plain And simple to express: Err and err and err again, but less and less and less.

    Looking forward to your next book!


    • Thanks, Alan. Piet Hein is a new name to me – I admire polymaths (there are not enough of them). You are a polymath too -which is why I’ve enjoyed our times together. Keep well, old friend.
