Working on my US account. $0.75. But only when it seems me coming from Canada, even though it's a US account. Also available in the UK. So, if you want it, either get one of us to get it for you (I'll be happy to, fwiw), or do a little traveling.

Thank you. I've still got them in paper so don't really feel like I need to buy it again right away. Without US availability I didn't think I should nominate it though.

No, you really couldn’t; sorry for the false hope. But maybe it’s a good omen for showing up in the US sometime in the future.

Poor Kindle version of The Daughter of Time

Hi - just a heads up for kindle users. I bought this cheap version of The Daughter of Time from US Amazon. There are so many errors it’s unreadable:

https://www.amazon.com/Daughter-Time...sr=1-1-catcorr

Someone must have ocr’d it without making any corrections. So I ended up buying this complete set of Inspector Grant Mysteries, which is very clean and readable:

Very annoying! But you should also be aware that this is available from FadedPage, the Canadian Public Domain site. (A very useful resource, with quite well edited editions of many Canadian and non-Canadian authors.)

Thanks - I’d never read Tey before, but I’m loving ‘The Daughter of Time’, so it was a blessing in disguise

I am extremely anal when it comes to reading books in order if they are part of a series, as The Daughter of Time is. Are the Inspector Grant books connected in any way beyond having the same protagonist? Any internal references to previous cases at all?

The operative words here are extremely anal.

My memory is that this is very much a standalone book, even though Inspector Grant is, obviously, a recurring character in a series of 6 books (of which this is #5). So I would say not to worry about it.

Full disclosure -- it's been YEARS since I read Daughter of Time. OTOH, the premise for this is completely different from other Inspector Grant books, given that it's not about a current, or even remotely current case, but about Richard III.

It is a precious and valuable resource indeed. All of Dorothy Sayers, all of Patricia Wentworth's Miss Silver books. A lot of Hemingway. And hundreds of other authors. Of course, NAFTA 2.0 is likely to impact what they can do, but for now, at least, they're still doing Life+50.

I'm a bit like that too. However, I think as Charlie says this one can stand alone quite easily as dealing with a mystery from the past. There are characters who do appear in walk-on roles in various books, but again, Tey says who they are and it doesn't require any prior knowledge of them, as each book is a separate mystery. Grant himself has more of a walk-on role in The Franchise Affair - other characters take centre stage in that one.

As long as sanity prevails (not necessarily so these days it seems) your rules will change as ours did when Australia and the US signed a free-trade agreement back in 2004. So we have death + 50 years for authors who died up to 31 December 1953, and death + 70 for those who died after 1 January 1954.

That is, it wasn't applied retrospectively, so you won't lose the authors already on Faded Page, but you won't get any more for, presumably, another 20 years.

This is the only book in the series that I have read. I am usually picky about order too. I thought it is was ok as a stand-alone. It’s really the personality of the inspector that you don’t have familiarity with but the plot is independent.

And if the personality of the inspector in the first book is anything to go by, no one is missing anything. Others have had more success than I, but the first book was a did-not-finish for me. I'm hoping for better from this one, certainly it has a good reputation.

Thanks. I will try to pretend I don't know that the book is part of a series.
