Chapter 8 https://librivox.org/uploads/annise/lifeofthomaslordcochrane1_08_bourne.mp3 37:22 I've been watching "A series of unfortunate events" and can't help thinking that Cochrane has some Beaudelaire genes.

Re: SOLO The desirable alien at home in Germany/V Hunt-ans

Thanks for another prompt PL, Paul. Violet Hunt is such a flamboyant writer and, I read, personality too.
