Catch up post on reading

A Meeting at Corvallis, S.M. Stirling, 512 pages.
This is the final book in the first Dies the Fire Trilogy. I can't wait to get to the next series of books.

Hunters of Dune, Brian Herbert & Kevin J. Anderson, 576 pages.
I have an ongoing love affair with the Dune series. I vastly preferred the originals written by Frank Herbert but enjoy the expansion on the series enough to muddle through the style differences with the new authors. I recommend them if you have been bitten by the Dune bug.

They ARE good, maybe not great literature, but great chars, well written, and fascinating. Good stuff! Really enjoying the read...
I'm waiting on the third book of second series, Rudy off on his quest East. The Sword of the Lady.
Also, am currently reading the third of the Nantucket series, On the Oceans of Eternity.

Kinda prefer the Dies the Fire series.. maybe it is all the bow and crossbows...

Actually
I have been meaning to ask you about commissioning a crossbow. That has mostly been delayed by a desire to have the cash on hand to start the commission.

Would you be so kind as to hit me with an email so we can talk about the costs and choices that I should research?

Characters
I really enjoy the characters in an almost bizarre fangirl kind of way. I am glad I am not the only one.

Re: Characters
Now, I wish I had said that, as it describes pretty much how I feel about them...
And I'll send you an email! You can go target shooting with Paragon...
