You have! I wasn't fishing for a compliment, just pointing out an observation.

...but I'll still take the compliment! :)

And New Evermist hits the web tomorrow.

I've decided that I can't NOT write humor, it just doesn't work. I'm glad you liked it :)

Hee-hee - I'm glad you liked it! Yeah, I was thinking about True Blood a little as I wrote it. Equal rights for Zombies?

Nope. That is utterly true. I did not watch Firefly when it first ran.

I used PayPal so it was much easier for me to leave them in the dust!

Now, I use box.net and this blog. It's so much easier and I don't have to deal with the aholes at Podbean.

I understand. And don't get me wrong, TOR publishes stuff I don't like too. Trying to remember the name of the book... David Drake! Lord of the Isles? I read it, but boy I didn't like it.

Obviously, this is deep into the original novel. What you don't see is that he is adopted by the captain of the guard when his parents are murdered, his future is pretty uncertain. He doesn't know that anyone intends to let him take his father's place (who was second in line for the throne), doesn't expect to be anything more than a soldier in the king's army, really. And the king actually makes a point of ignoring him for most of his life to try and keep him safe until he can name him as the heir (because he doesn't have any children of his own).

By the time this chapter rolls around, the king sees a way to name the boy as heir and get him away from the castle where he'll be safe and can grow and come back a strong leader.

...which, of course, doesn't happen exactly according to plan. But that's tomorrow's post...

Glad you like it.

OK, next time you're in Denver, I'm gonna teach you about The Blues. Once it gets into your soul, it won't let go. ;-)
