So sorry for the lateness of this post, but the truth is that despite my best efforts I have not been able to get a copy of this text. I have tried every secondhand and new bookshop in town, and I have it on inter-library loan order, but still have not been able to get my hands on one.

Is there anybody that read the book this month that would like to lead the discussion? I promise I will join in as soon as my copy arrives. I am happy for you to start the discussion here on this journal, or equally happy to direct people to the journal of your choice.

This months book was to be 'Les Guerillieres' but that is looking even *less* available than 'Woman on the Edge of Time' so I am thinking it might be in my best interest to save that for another month. I am due to have a baby next week so my organising energies are really in another place right now. Is there a suitable text that anyone would like to recommend that they know is easily available in Australia? Or shall we leave it until next month?

I'd be happy to host a discussion of WotEoT on my SF blog, if other people have had a chance to read it. I just happened to luck onto a used copy a while back myself, but I don't think it's readily available here in the US either, unfortunately.

I have a post about the book that I've slowly been drafting, so I could finish that up to kick off the discussion, if that seems appropriate.

(And congrats and good luck with your baby!)

Of all the listed texts, I found Native Tongue the easiest to get hold of - the library had a copy, and there were a couple floating around on ebay. The rest of them weren't available through any library I have access to, and I couldn't find them second hand. I got most of them through Booktopia in the end.

Butler's Lilith's Brood/Xenogenesis trilogy seem most readily available in my area - maybe that's a USA thing?

Another suggestion...

How about "The Telling" by Ursula Le Guin?

It's one of her more recent ones, so may be a little more available than some other books.

I have a copy which, if I can remember where I put it, I would be happy to share with others in Australia (it's quite small and light so easy to post).

sajbrfem: good luck with the baby! (and with getting enough sleep, etc etc)
