Ok I'll bite, but I'll try and make some of the answers different to last
> Name: Rowena Macrae-Gibson
> Occupation: Librarian (full details in my sig file) One perk being that I
> can order items for stock, so I've got the new book about DWJ on order.
> Spouses/children: Boyf of 14 years/0
> I live in: Currently back in London after 8 years in Exeter (Am I mad?!?)
> How I discovered the list: Like many people I can't remember, although
> the development of the web has been fantastic, as now I know I'm not the
> only person who loves DWJ!
> Favorite DWJ novel: Very difficult to choose, although probably Fire &
> Hemlock or Howl. It's easier to say which I re-read least frequently
> (Homeward Bounders, Black Maria)
> First DWJ novel: Dogsbody in about 1978. So some of my books are now
> falling apart. I'm wondering whether to rebuy just those in need of
> repair, or the whole lot. (Although I'm still waiting for Cart & Cwidder
> to be republished in an unabridged format. I'll stick with my original
> Puffin paperback rather than read my edited copy)
> Favorite authors (besides DWJ): Difficult to say. Despite loving a lot of
> SF/fantasy on TV, I don't read much of it. I like lots of different
> things, although we do own a lot of 'golden age' detective fiction.
> Number of books owned: Very difficult to say, although the only reason we
> need a spare room is to help house the books, and the videos, and the CDs
> are beginning to take over the living room!
> Favorite music: Classical & Opera. With Desert Island Discs including
> Peter Grimes, Tristan & Isolde, Shostakovich and at least some cello
> Non-reading hobbies: Going to concerts & the Opera. Listening to
> music. And watching some of the aforementioned huge pile of
> videos (Mostly Doctor Who, Babylon 5, Buffy & Angel, The Sweeney)
