I just wanted briefly to mark the passing of a good friend and great supporter of my writing, the lovely Erica Fairs. In one of the last conversations I had with her she urged me to get The Raven's Wing finished sharpish, because she was eager to read it. Now she never will. Here's the dedication I'll be putting in the front of the book:

For Erica, who didn’t live to see the story finished. Thank you for all the laughs.
