My pleasure!

I am finally - finally - reading The Inferior. Wow. How long exactly must I wait for The Deserter? I'm ready to click that "pre-order" button at the very first opportunity.

Hey, thanks, EH! I don't know how long we'll have to wait. My editors have been a bit swamped for the last year and a bit. But I'm ready to go now!

I told it Ethan of Athos. amazon recommended more or less everything else by Bujold, all of which I've already read. LibraryThing froze.

Oh no! I had good luck trying Mary Shelley's The Last Man, but it sounds like it still has some issues.
