Recorded Voice of Virginia Woolf

But what she has to say... Thrilling stuff!

And there's a very nice photo of her and Lytton Strachey (who wrote Emminent Victorians which introduced modern biography as an art form).

He once asked Virginia to marry him and when she said yes he said "It was ghastly" :) They'd been friends since childhood...

Two new stories for you

I'm rather fond of On with the Motley it's cute but it has a bit more depth than it looks. Find it The Pygmy Giant

Cider Sunrise is a satisfying revenge tale over at EDF.

beautiful poem. Good job!
