A Life of Surprises
Professor Bernice Summerfield, interstellar archaeologist, adventurer, romantic and drinker, has had either one very big life or a number of only slightly smaller ones.
This anthology contains stories from many times and places across her long career, ranging from the starkly dramatic, through the thrilling, to the hilarious.
It links Bernice to her roots, as well as sending her forward into new adventures. And it celebrates a decade of Bernice in print. Cheers!
- A Life of Surprises was the second Bernice Summerfield prose anthology published by Big Finish Productions, it was also the first hardback anthology. It was the first of five anthologies that shared “life” or “lives” in their titles.
