I'm not entirely sure if I'm going to manage to participate this year though I'll definitely sign up to pinch hit. I love Sutcliff, I love writing Sutcliff stuff but it's a really really difficult style to do justice too. But if anyone out there fancies it, they totally should! And if you haven't read any of the books (Eagle of the Ninth or any of the others) then you definitely should, and then chat with me about them! Just indulge my palpable and embarrassingly obvious fondness for brotherly/sisterly bonds of any type.
