Still working on that novel, Angels in the Flames. One of the chapters I'm adding to the original novel (at the suggestion of editors and other advisors) is about the British barque, the Robert Kerr, that was in Vancouver harbour at the time of the Vancouver fire, June 13, 1886. I've contacted the Maritime Museum to see what they have on the subject, and I have an appointment with the librarian/archivist next Tuesday afternoon to learn all about it. Meanwhile, I have to work on other chapters so as not to get too far behind. I need to have the whole book done (all rewrites in order, etc.) by Easter.
