Acres of books in the dealers' room.



Whilst I love having lots of SF books to browse through, the dealers' room usually makes me feel slightly despondant. Here are all these books, why on earth should I think there's a need for more? Why am I writing a fantasy when there are already so many?

But this year, just as the usual negative thoughts were assembling themselves, ready to trundle through my brain, I realised that though there might be umpteen fantasy novels, there were very few comedies. So there, negative thoughts, begone!
