Which one did you try to read? I know that if I'd read _Drowned
Ammet_ first (in fact it was either _The Spellcoats_ or _Cart and
Cwidder_ in the atrocious Dutch translation I mentioned earlier) it
would have put me off; I only enjoyed it (sort of) because it
completed the world.

That's great! I bought it last Saturday because I went to a meeting
that had been called off - but the person doing that had sent it to
the address we will be moving to next month. I was so pissed off
(travelled two hours to get there) that I had to buy a book to
console myself :-)
