Incidental stuff: I've had a couple of new reviews appear the last two weeks at Green Man Review. One is for Move Under Ground, by Nick Mamatas (a book I liked, but with reservations -- Mamatas himself, incidentally, thinks my review is tripe); and Airborn by Kenneth Oppel, which I loved. Check them out. (Ane believe me, if you're looking for a fun book to read, get Oppel's. It's the closest thing I've ever read to a fourth Indiana Jones movie.)
More to come at GMR in the next couple of weeks as I clear the decks.
