Hello all!

I recently read "By Mountain Bound" and "All the Windwracked Stars" and well, while I would under no circumstances want to meet Mingan in a dark alley, he is quite fun to draw.

I wrote a large essay recently that's half about DUST, by Elizabeth Bear. (The other half's about PARADISES LOST, by Ursula K. Le Guin.) If anyone wants to read it, a description and details are here.

Who has read All the Windwracked Stars? I've read it once, but, as is customary for me with Bear's books, there are still some things I'm confused about that might require more readings to figure out. I may actually have to take notes, or something. If anyone wants to have a spoilery chat about it in the comments, that would awesome.

Apparently there is a play about Marlowe written in '92 by Peter Whelan, called "The School of Night." It's just premiering in the US and there was a write up in the L.A. Times, which is how I heard about it. Review isn't promising, but I may try and see it, if I can...

Yay for E-Books! Now we arehave six - Jenny Books, Carnival, Undertow, and Dust.

Who do I have to bribe or sleep with to get the rest as E-books? Would writing letters to the publishers help, do you think? I hate missing out! *grrr*

EB Fangirls "r" us,
