Christine Johnston – 1994
During 1994, Christine Johnston wrote a novel, Settlers (which remains unpublished), an autobiographical essay, and short stories that formed The End of the Century, published in 1999. On display is part of her typescript of 'The End of the Century', which, like much writing, faced a re-shaping. The story was 'updated' on the 24th July 1995. The 'Yellow' refers to Johnston's own in-house disk storage system.
