A Picture or a Thousand Words?

...'cos you can now have both! People kept asking for prints so they're now available from the Oleander website - framed or as unframed 10 x 8s. They look specbl**dytacular even if I say so myself.

On the book front we've done great numbers - 400 in two shops in 3 weeks in Cambridge alone! And Sir Ranulph Fiennes was on R4 talking about Night Climbing (and the Marie Curie Delivering choice Programme of course) on the 7th (see Listen Again, Libby Purves' Midweek on the R4 website) and that produced a small avalanche (intended) of visits to the site. I sent him a couple of the numbered, signed copies for the Campaign auction.

In coming weeks look out for features in The Observer, The Good Book Guide, The Oldie, possibly The Telegraph, definitely buildering.net, freakclimbing.com, ukclimbing.com, Gripped mag, Urban Climber mag and a whole bunch more. Love this stuff.

OH! - and guess what? I've heard from a trusted source that the Director of the Fitzwilliam Museum (also the Master of Magdalene) has asked for NCoC to be removed from the museum shop, branding it 'irresponsible'... I thought museums were mandated to preserve and promote our cultural heritage - not censor it. Of course, this is probably just an unfounded and erroneous rumour. Yeah, that's probably it.

Thanks everyone and take care.

I had the honour to have worked for the author on his family farm at Market Harborough.
Noel was a generous man who taught my daughter to ride on one of his horses. His wife Greta used to run the farm when Noel was away on one of his many mountain climbs.
At the farm was his old motor cycle, a machine he attempted to cross the Sahara on, this was before my time.
It was a pleasure to know this man and his family and if his son Ian or his daughter, (her name escapes me)Hermoine I think, would like to contact me I would be only to pleased to hear from them. The last time I heard from Noel, his son Ian was in Australia.
I have a signed copy of The Night Climber of Cambridge, which I keep in pride of place on my bookshelf.
John.
