Q:  What’s your favorite non-SFF book?

A: The Mirror Crack’d by Agatha Christie. I first read it when I was about twelve years old–a cheap, tattered paperback I found in a cardboard box in storage. Despite its problems reflecting the era it was written in, to me it was a revelation: women, in their old age, didn’t have to sit around knitting socks and doing housework (unless they wanted to); they could solve mysteries, or even write stories.
