It’s the week of Valentine’s Day. Leaving that to one side, then, here is the fourteenth Second-Hand Book Factory with Charles Adrian and this week’s guest Will Mackenzie. They discuss the quantum of evil required for litigation, the power that some books have over the imagination and the mysterious Barbara who once owned that gateway book Trouble With Lichen.

The Kiran who is mentioned is Kiran Chauhan. He is featured in Page One 47.

Another book by John Windham, The Chrysalids, is discussed in Page One 68.
