Darn you all to heck, Kay Kenyon
That's another night's sleep I won't get back...but, Fnord! What a great yarn.



Oh, I should note that this is Volume 2 of this incredibly engaging, page-turning world. Volume 1 already chewed up a couple of late nights. Here's the link to it:



Oh, right, I forgot what--over and above the joy of reading them--quickened the impulse in me to drag myself to my desk to point you at her books. I stuck it all the way through to the Author's Note. I don't always get that far--generally only when the momentum of the tale has left me looking for another fix, another jolt. In the note, I found that Ms. Kenyon blogs here as kenyonsf. Oh, and fiddle_dragon, et al., it appears she is also a was raised a Minnesotan--I'm guessing she's well known to you already, but just in case...

Okay, I'm rather incoherent. I'm finding that I'm having to edit fairly simple sentences to come close to syntactical soundness, let alone sense...so on this note, I'm dragging back to the bedroom and under the covers...well, okay, right after I add her blog to my friends list.

I'm glad you're pimping these books -- I think Kay's doing superb work.

Hey, Pete, I feel quite penitent for your lost sleep. But, on the other hand, it is rather satisfying, I must admit. On the sympathetic side, I found myself quite resentful recently that Dan Simmons' latest book The Terror not only kept me reading late, but then wouldn't let me sleep even After I put the book down. (Glad you're enjoying the story. I'm quite excited by City Without End coming out in February (book three.) I hated the book as I started writing it, and then the after-burners just lit up and the thing worked out better than I could have hoped. Hope you like that one,too.

Zoiks...as if losing sleep reading wasn't bad enough.

This is why I stay away from horrific tales.

I was lucky enough to find Bright of the Sky in the "new fiction" shelf of the Loudoun County Public Library; I'm not patient enough to wait for my kindly librarians to procure the next installment. My pre-order for Volume 3 is in.

If it was already going to be out MLK weekend, I would suggest a trip to Arisia. I think your work would find a following there. [Take a look at past WGoH's, for example. You'll see a lot of kindred spirits.]

Come to think of it, with a convention date so close to your release date, your publisher might want to look into advertising in the program book.
