Re: New feature suggestion: add "rating" from external website, for browsing the catalog

I'm trying to get back to recording, after a long break.

Re: [SOLO]Hadrian the Seventh, by Fr. Rolfe (Baron Corvo) - tg

Leni and Algy - Many thanks for your kind wishes. :) Tricia - Update: Yes, I can now access the MW.

I need to do a bit more tinkering; then will be ready to post regularly...

Pam - Many thanks for volunteering! I hope you'll enjoy this rather bizarrely-written text. :)

Many thanks
