  2. I was puzzled about the website correction at first as I have the correct link but then I saw that the image acknowledgement was .com. Well spotted and many thanks. Also thanks for the Isherwood Foundation information. I don’t link to amazon any more but I’m happy if writers want to add their Kindle notices in the comments. Less work for me!
