Forgot to mention just now. Finished Thief of Time yesterday. Very good ending to go with the very good beginning and middle. Also read all of this month's Classic Rock - yup, I managed to get through a magazine while it is still on the shelves of the newsagents. Amazing.
Next book in line is Classic Bus Tests - a trawl through industry mags of the 20s-50s. Nice to see what people thought at the time of the buses preservationists rave over now. More news when I've got past the front cover. Which might be this afternoon if I get the chance/get bored/everyone else buggers off early.
