Thanks Sue.  I hope you enjoy it.  I always appreciate when good validators
take my scans as I know they will end up in the collection at true top
quality.  No need to feel guilty!  There's no good reason for a book like
that to be hard to validate.  We should save the validation challenges for
books with tables and charts and creative formatting.stuff that OCR doesn't
handle very well.

Hi Donna,


I downloaded Serenissima.  I waited awhile since I know your scans are
always good, and I feel guilty if I grab them.  But since no one took this
one I went ahead and got it.


Sue S.

Gravelight by Marion Zimmer Bradley


This is another clean scan and I've done the usual to prepare it for
validation.  Should be a very easy validation.


Here's the synopsis.


Wycherly Musgrave doesn't have good luck with cars and alcohol. Trying to
outrun the memory of a young woman he may have killed in a drunk-driving
accident, Wych sends his expensive sports car sailing off the road.. .and,
with his usual impossible luck, survives the crash with no more than a few
bumps and bruises. The car is totaled, stranding Wycherly in the tiny
mountain town of Morton's Fork. Making the best of a bad situation, Wych
decides to try to dry out.

Wycherly isn't Morton's Fork's only unusual guest this summer: A movie star
has taken up residence in a converted schoolhouse. Sinah Dellon left
Morton's Fork as an infant foundling. Now she's come home to learn who her
people were-and why she has the ability to read minds. But Sinah's psychic
powers do not help her with the townsfolk, who turn from her in fear and

Equally untrustworthy, according to the residents of Morton's Fork, are the
RV-load of researchers from the Bidney Institute, come to investigate
centuries of reported hauntings, vanishings, poltergeists, and other
phenomena. They too are poking around in things better left unexplored.
Before long,Truth Blackburn, heroine of Bradley's novel Ghostlight,
discovers that the source of the psychic storm is a renegade Gate-and one
with a connection to Truth's own tangled past. But she cannot close the Gate
alone, and the true Keeper is nowhere to be found.

In despair, Wycherly Musgrave has made a pact with evil. In fear, Sinah
Dellon feels her soul slipping away under attack from a vengeful spirit. In
dread, Truth Blackburn must make a great sacrifice to save all the people of
Morton's Fork, and the man she loves, from the power of the Gate.
