I finished reading Robert Rankin's latest pbb last night, and was amused at the Tuckerisation of lproven, but also by the presence of a young lady in a straw hat playing anachronistic music on steel drums.

I wonder who that might be based on.

The third connection is its use of Bletchley Park as a setting. Which reminds me: A few tickets left for tomorrow: Schneier and Diffie! And fireworks.

ISTR Robert's girlfriend plays the steel drums.

I picked up Retromancer in HB in Oxfam a few weeks ago.

His wife, these days.

And yes, she's pretty good at it.
