My first attempt seems to have gone off to never never land.  Here is
the message again:

She is a great deal of fun to hear talk.  I was lucky enough to hear
her speak (last year? the year before?) at the University of
Minnesota.  She arrived _early_, sat in the audience and watched the
people.  Many of the folks there were very suprised when CJ Cherryh
was introduced.  Her talk was really neat.

I'd love to get my hands on your program and your various tables.  As
long as I'm at it, I'll type the Kiffish in (once I find my copies of
the Hani series.)

Oohh, scan them all!  Do close up scans on people and ships.  Scan the
maps.  Scan the artwork!

Other notes:
Someone a while ago mentioned Kiff miniatures.  From where?

gaming stuff:  Lately I've been really disappointed with the 
<deleted> material from GDW.  Before I dive in and write my own,
has anyone every seen a source book for any gaming system that 
uses background from CJ Cherryh's universe?  Having just read 
40,000 in Gehenna, Rim Runners, Cyteen I-III, and Downbelow 
Station in _very_ rapid sequence, I want to set my new Traveller
universe there.  Anyone who wants to talk about this further with 
me offline is welcome to.  

I'll post the final results here or on an archive site when I'm done.
The idea isn't to make money, the idea is to have a useful gaming

My day today? Nothing major, just Xenon base gone, Scorpio gone, 
Tarrant dead, Tarrant alive and then I found out Blake sold us out.
