Good Morning Sir. Would I be right in thinking that you wrote a short story about, what would become the Thisledown where, if I remember correctly the asteroid had been abandoned and a young woman(?) occupied it? I seem to remember a rich description of the politics of the project. I can't find reference to it among my books and the internet isn't a lot of help here. Would you be kind enough to point me in the right direction please? Thanks in advance.

You're thinking of "The Wind From a Burning Woman," Ian, which was first published in ANALOG in October 1978, with a fine Mike Hinge cover.

Greg, thank you so much for taking the time to reply and I am utterly delighted that I have the name of the story. My local book seller tells me that I will have a copy before the end of the week, so again thank you! Kind regards Ian
