I have been an admirer of yours for many years and, on reading Lurulu, I was amazed that one of the significant characters was given the enigmatic name of Loy Tremaine. As my name is Lloyd Treymaine I was as bewildered as any character residing in the Gaean Reach. The coincidence is startling; Treymaine is an unusual surname and Lloyd is a fairly unusual forename. The combination of the two prompted thoughts of could our paths ever have crossed? I don't think so.
