'Me and Lazella don't wanna head back to Earth. What's the point of spending a lifetime travelling to be old somewhere we never been before? who knows if the sky would look as blue through a pair of hundred year old eyes anyway. This is Tamara musing near the beginning of quite a long and complicated Space story. Tamara is an orphan brought up by her Aunt Lazella and smuggled aboard a freighter carrying phosphorous and helium from distant mining operations.' (Introduction)

    'Rolling a hitherto unknown word off the tongue or rediscovering an under-used word can be very satisfying in, I suspect, the manner of young children who seem to savour words for their sound. However, when you consider the importance of those words, those 26 letters employed to craft them cannot be over estimated : they are the building blocks of expression, and lifters of communication, thought, ideas, instruction ... all arranged in a myriad of combinations to produce, according to the 2nd edition of the 20-volume Oxford English Dictionary, 171,486 words in current use. Add the many languages around the world and the concept is mind-blowing.' (Editorial)
