This Week

Welcome to the new subscribers who have signed up to follow Fantasy Debut recently. When I have a difficult time posting--as I have had recently--it's always a boost to my spirits when someone wants to subscribe anyway!

And ugh, am I still suffering from the stomach biopsies and twilight anesthesia of last week. I am forbidden to take ibuprofen, so of course a migraine reared its ugly head, and anything other than ibuprofen only makes the pain pull back a little. Plus, I cannot seem to digest meat. I've lost two pounds, which will look good at my Weight Watcher's weigh-in on Tuesday.

I have a review of Servant of a Dark God almost ready to post on Tuesday, plus I just sent an interview off to the author, John Brown. I am into the opening chapters of Slaves of the Shinar, which is an older debut. It has the advantage of featuring a grown man rather than a boy. I have enjoyed all the boy stories I've read recently--despite all my complaining--but it is good to get away from them for a while. And then I'll read Canticle.

Plus, I really want to get my hands on the sequel to Would-Be Witch by Kimberly Frost, which has another adorable cover and is called Barely Bewitched. It just came out on September 15th. I need a Zach fix. Plus, I read the blurb, and the idea of a "toxic spill of pixie dust" is just too funny!

Hey Tia, Hope you're feeling better soon :-) We all love ya even when you don't post much!

I hate it when medical after-effects linger. They seem far too inclined to, for my taste. {sympathetic smile}

I'm glad to see you're getting back to things. Just don't push yourself so hard you get a relapse. Those tend to be harder to recover from than the initial problem. {symapthetic smile}

Hi Tia :)
Thanks for the personal post.
I hope you rest & recuperate.
Get well soon,

I briefly allowed anonymous comments a couple of days ago and now I seem to have re-attracted the Chinese comment spammers. Really, Google ought to give us a few more options for fighting spam. Enabling us to permit only one link per comment would be a good start.

Oh, and thanks, everyone!

More joy! I'll be getting a copy of Barely Bewitched through my affiliation with Fantasy Literature. So I'll probably be writing two reviews!
