Rainbow snippet - If Music Be (from In the Spotlight)
In The Spotlight is out next week and available for pre-order. The second of the two stories in the combo is a story of love, loss and the healing power of the Bard. Rick's just agreed to take part in a production of "Twelfth Night".

“I’ll do it right now.”

“Am I barmy doing this?” he asked Coldstream, but the cat just went back to licking his tail.
