And it seems everytime I press on 'fiction' in the category options the character list reduces. Anyway, my dear Spiced, could we add "Anaire" to the list please.

I don't know why I'm having so many problems with posting. It's not the usual problem. Now it's the character list stops at 'N' for me. I'm sure it went further than that.
