directed at me! Well, it seems that my postings arrive in Wales with
the same sort of delay the US Tele shows do. Now I have to worry that
any answer I give to a respondant other than Wildfire will constitute
a technical spoiler from his viewpoint.
Thief of Time: This one is a slow starter for a Discworld book, but
worth hanging on as the ride picks up speed as it proceeds. I read it
in about three sessions, pretty normal for me and a page-turner. If
you don't like fantasy, or take your fantasy far too seriously, you
won't like this book at all. Personally, I have never met a Pratchett-
hater that had any redeeming personal features, so I find his books
save a lot of time by allowing me to weed out potential dweebs with a
simple "Ever read any discworld books?". A "Yes, and I hated it",
or "Can't stand Pratchett's stuff" will give me clear warning that
the person suffers from some unspeakable personality defect, and save
me the time of all that tedious mucking about with injunctions and
restraining orders in order to rid myself of the pest later.
I have just started "Red Moon" by Michael Cassutt. I was intrigued by
Spinrad's review in "Asimov's" enough to buy it. I had trouble
finding it, but I think it is going to pay off. More when I'm done.
