Thanks, Chris. I'm also a cerified fan, though the ending of _Stony Wood_
disappointed me somewhat (and she hardly ever disappoints me). I'm looking
forward to reading _Forests_. As far as buying it in HB is concerned, it's
just that the price of imported HBs in Australia can be as high as $60 AUS,
which was the price of _Stony Wood_ here. I'll probably borrow it from the
library and buy a remaindered copy or buy it in PB. Sigh.
