Well, I'm a bit heartbroken...
...because I've yet again finished the existing Pointsmen
books, by Melissa Scott and Lisa A. Barnett... including the new novelette, Point of Knives
And actually I'm briefly all newly-excited now cos I hadn't seen the new Point of Dreams
cover before (it isn't out yet, though you can still find the original print run copies around) and when I was looking for an old one to show you there it was
, all waiting to be ordered... (NB, Brits, the others were much quicker from Book Depository).
I know, I'm always raving about them
, and I'm sure I've given a heads up for the astreiant
comm before, which has a list of Rathe/Eslingen
fic (there isn't enough!), and... and... oh, but if you haven't
heard how gorgeous they are (in a deliciously professional way
... *g*) then... well, they really just are. For instance, I love this about them...
...But I've finished them agaaaaaaaain
- wah! The authors have done the most beautiful world-building job I can imagine, and I want to live in Astreiant
, and experience ghost-tide, and buy my daily broadsheet for the horoscopes, and... and... and what's going to happen about the succession
?! I've been waiting years to find out... Honestly, it's all just magic, and... I need more. Which there will hopefully one day be, but not for a while, I guess... *sighs impatiently*
And if you're fond of Pros and AU, and you're fond of beautifully written fantasy, then... hie thee to the bookshop! *g*
