You are very welcome. I was quite enjoying anticipating your reaction to it. I'm sure you've read all the stories in it, but it's certainly a nice overview of his range, isn't it? (I read much of it while sitting in other panels - I'm so bad).

I love having autographed books and I've managed to get some of my collection autographed over the years but the authors don't get to Australia that often. Living in Perth means that the shortest trip to another city is about 3500km so traveling to conventions even within Australia is quite expensive compared with the fares that you guys get in the US. Which Niven book were you given? (And is he still around?) I was lucky enough to meet Niven years ago at a convention in Sydney shortly after Ringworld Engineers was published and managed to get my copy of that and Ringworld autographed. He was quite an interesting guy to listen to but quite sure of his opinions.

I'm not in the US - magista is, but I'm in the Isle of Man, half-way between Britain and Ireland. (My sister lives in Perth and my parents in Australind - they're all Australian citizens).

She got me 'Playgrounds of the Mind', an anthology of short stories and extracts from the novels. She also got him to autograph a print-out of my LiveJournal user info page with all the Kzin references.
