I'm reading "Three cups of tea," about a nurse who failed to climb K2 but dedicated his life to building schools and infrastructure for high-altitude villagers in Afghanistan and Pakistan. Wow.

Thanks, SPB. Cool Moniker. I lived in London for two 6 month periods in a flat just north of Kensington gardens. I loved it. There's some pretty cool physics coming out of the Imperial College, so I'm considering heading back. Rent looks a bit pricey though.

Okay, gotcha. The idea wasn't notability but specificity. That is, the time and place need not be famous, just chosen. So a woman in the 1900s is great, but if we were more specific it might add richness and verity to the story. When does the story take place? Is it during the Great War? The 1980s? ...

MLE, I love the idea of authors reading their own stories. I hadn't considered the trend of phones becoming computers in that connection. I think you're right about on-line publishing. It makes sense to get the stories out to as many people as easily as possible. I still would love to get hard copie...
