Our young friend, Cissie, who arrived in the UK with her mum and dad,
Myron, and Cissie when she was 7, with a smattering of English, is now a 17
yr old voracious reader of fantasy novels so I offered her Mary G. I
enjoyed Ash and Witchbreed but I found the print too tiny and the books too
heavy to hold so I haven’t kept them.

The 1,000+ page “Ash”, is that one story or a compendium? I can’t
remember,: that write up is pants. Were there more than the two Witchbreed
titles? Have just realised I didn’t explain to Cissie she can use a Kindle
app: her mum uses a real kindle as I do.

A proper bookworm! Much impressed I’d met the author.

Ash is not for the faint-hearted! Yes, it's one story with an
astonishingly wide scope.

Mary G also writes as Roxanne Morgan. Those are, er, a different kind of
fantasy.
