On p.6 of the current Newsletter, MAGA graciously acknowledge the  
reprint by Spyrys a Gernow of 'Jory' by Myghal Palmer with this  
unfortunate wording:
> Hemm o an kensa novel Myghal Palmer ...

This looks suspiciously like the notorious 'English genitive', so  
beloved of learners (An chy an den - the house of the man. An chy  
Peder - Peter's house).

Perhaps they should have written:
> Hemm o kensa novel Myghal Palmer
.... or ...
> Hemm o an kensa novel gans Myghal Palmer ...
