Aqueduct Press are currently offering my short biographical and critical introduction to Naomi Mitchison at $9 instead of $12.

Am currently reading Mitchison's short study of Anna Comnena, which she wrote for what sounds like a very interesting 1920s series of 'Representative Women', though I've never seen any of the others (but will be looking out for them now). This work has just been republished by Kennedy and Boyd, which I discover is producing The Naomi Mitchison Library Series under the general editorship of Professor Isobel Murray, and also Naomi Mitchison - Essays and Journalism under the editorship of Moira Burgess. Given how annoyingly difficult it is to obtain much of Mitchison's enormous oeuvre, this is an excellent initiative.
