Alison Flood's wonderful piece about First Light in the Guardian has helped take the project up to 60% funding -- thanks so much, Alison! Dr Rowan Williams -- former Archbishop of Canterbury -- appeared in the piece, and what he said about Alan's work was wonderful. “I’ve been reading Alan Garner since I was 13,” he told the paper. “The word ‘haunting’ is cheap and overused, but I might say that I have experienced his stories almost ‘possessing’ my imagination. They resonated with my own concerns and passions around myth and landscape, and a growing sense of the scarred depths of unconscious suffering.” I'll let you know too that he's filed his contribution to First Light  -- I won't say anything more, as it would spoil the surprise, but suffice to say, I felt a shiver down my spine when I read his piece. Margaret Atwood has filed to me too --  something very different, of course, but equally splendid; what I'm starting to read makes me even more excited about the rich and varied volume First Light is going to be. Are you as excited as I am? Oh, I bet you are...
