With German Literature Month VII just around the corner, I thought I’d better bring GLM VI to its official close!  (Well, if you’re going to miss a deadline, then do it properly, and 51 weeks late is a proper missed deadline.)  Anyway, here we go.  Last year’s author index – hopefully all present and correct.

Say what you will, putting this together brought back some good memories, and reminded me of a pile of books that are still patiently awaiting my attention on the old TBR.  Perhaps it will do the same for you and give you that final nudge to join us for this year’s G-lit extravaganza.  It all kicks off this time next week!  Are you ready?
