In the same magazine John Walsh asserts that nobody will ever read Tolstoy on an e-Reader. By chance I'm three hundred pages into Anna Karenina on mine and enjoying it immensely. Sorry, John.

Oh and did I mention Suzy Feay, Literary Editor of IOS, calls Lost Tim "A jeu d'esprit, but also, just possibly, the future of fiction." ??
