Coming soon: a giveaway of the paperback of The Maker’s Mask. I’ll open the post for that as soon as I’ve, er, opened the post from Lulu and the book’s in my hands. I don’t think there’s likely to be a postal strike or similar, but I just don’t want to be offering to give something away until I know I’ve got it.
In the meantime, I really enjoyed Sarah Monette’s Doctrine Of Labyrinths books (well, the first three: I’ve been told by people I trust that I will like the fourth one, but to be honest at present I’m still in a state of ‘I can’t deal with anything else terrible happening to these characters I love, so I will pretend there are no more books’ about it. I only get this way about characters I really care about and root for, the most recent being Barbara Hambly’s Benjamin January) and I was very happy when someone tipped me off that she’d done a series of Q and As on her LJ in which she talked about the world and its backstory.
So, since some of you have read the books by now: ask me questions! I warn you in advance that the answer may well be ‘I don’t know’ or ‘It runs on handwavium’ or ‘I’ve forgotten’ but I’ll do my best to answer. 🙂
