"Does anyone on this list have aspirations to authorhood? One of my goals
it to get a story published, actually have one close to ready to send
off... Anyone else here?"

Ooh yes!!! :) My lifelong ambition - to be a starving writer. ;) I would
like to correspond with anyone else who has similar aspirations though I
know that, by nature, writers are generally solitary creatures... like
photographers and fishermen. WROTE

"can anyone suggest any books by any of these authors?(please):"

"angela carter": Read "The Bloody Chamber" - it's a collection of rewritten
fairytales - interesting stuff.

"p.p.s. - who was thomas the rhymer?" Ellen Kruber (sp?) wrote a book about
him - called, incidentally enough, "Thomas the Rhymer". It won some prize
but I didn't think it was that great.

RE Ursula Le Guin:

For English I had to read "The Left Hand of Darkness" which I really liked
even though it was hard going to get through. Has anyone else read it?
