AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Chandler writes about some of the things that raise his ire and put him in a bad mood. One was a visit to the Mitchell Library (State Library of NSW) and the other his first first reading of an interview with an Auckland Herald journalist. The 'pet corns' that were stamped upon are the use of 'Christian' rather than 'given' name; the use of 'sci fi' instead of 'sf' when referring to him as a science fiction author; and the way in which a driver’s license is demanded as proof of identity.
