Hi,

All the best for New Year! I read an interview about some of your influences, and just wondered if James Tiptree, Jr (or her alias') were amongst any of your reading material early on?

Regards

Shaun

She was--in the mid-seventies, before she revealed her true identity. Her fiction was powerful and had a unique voice--and I didn't care whether Tiptree was male or female.
