Between you and George I can see I'm going to have to try this one too.

Night Shade is a really great press, and they have some wonderful cover art for their books, most especially for this series. I'm glad you enjoyed it. I too thought that it sounded like something that might not work and yet Williams ties all the elements together so well. I really got a kick out of the relationships between the characters and was very intrigued by Chen's wife, among others.

Great minds think alike, Rick. It had to happen that we would both be reading the same book at the same time and that our reviews would appear roughly at the same time. In fact, if it wasn't for the DINERS, DRIVE-INS & DIVES episode, I would have posted my SNAKE AGENT review today.

George - I'm sorry if I trumped you on this book, neither of us could have known the other was reading it. No problem with more publicity for a good, interesting book!

I became a fan of Liz Williams' work last year when I read THE POISON MASTER. She has been strongly influenced by Jack Vance. My review of SNAKE AGENT will appear tomorrow.

Bill - it is good, better than I had any right to expect for a pretty much blind pick off the publisher's shelf though I did make sure it was the first in the series and the blurb intrigued me. Patti - That's an interesting idea. I don't think, in reality, genre labels will go away, but there will be more of this kind of thing as authors decide not to be held within any boundaries a specific genre may impose.

Yes, I love the idea of crossing genres. Pretty soon, we may have to discard them entirely and just call any fiction piece over 120 pages a novel.

Sounds good, all right.
