A Life of Surprises


Professor Bernice Summerfield, interstellar archaeologist, adventurer, romantic and drinker, has had eitherone very big life or a number of only slightly smallerones.

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!
