I just received a parcel from the States containing an uncorrected proof of Eann's 'Healer's War' complete with the publisher's letter inside. Judging by the spine the reviewer never read it.



The ISBN is 0-385-24828-8



The bonus tucked into the package is a near perfect signed copy of Ursula Le Guinn's 'The Altered I' being a compliation from the Science Fiction Writing Workshop at Aussiecon 1975.

Two or three of the contributors mention Ursula LaGuinn sitting around smoking a pipe!
