I did manage not to kill anyone yesterday. When I got home, I found that Amazon had delivered Kushiel’s Scion, The Chains That You Refuse, and some other goodies to my doorstep, so everything after that was A-OK.
Post-lunch update: The first two stories in TCTYR are worth the price of admission. While reading the first one, I frightened a fellow diner with a howl of laughter he evidently didn’t expect from the quiet munching person in the corner.
That’s not to say the rest of the stories aren’t equally wonderful. I just haven’t read them yet.
