So I caught up with an old friend at the weekend:
Friend: Gosh, you've written loads of things! Which would you recommend for my reading group?
Me: Well, what sort of thing do they like?
Friend: Oh, anything.
Me: OK, good...
Friend: Well, except for that science fiction stuff. They don't really like things like that.
I had to laugh. Quietly, to myself. Has this ever happened to you? I bet it has...
