I think the Guardsmen books are my favorites--but I keep changing my mind.
Been re-reading those in between DWJ books, and _Carpe Jugulum_ is so good!
Still, _Reaper Man_ has to be one of the overall best Discworld books.  I
saw an advance notice for _The Truth_ at Amazon.uk--can you believe he's
written 25 Discworld novels?  It's coming out in November.

It's a crime that Barry Hughart never wrote more Li Kao books.  I could
really go for one of those right now--like a good chocolate, or a warm
kitten, very soul-satisfying.

More November releases....

Again, November.  Everything good happens in November.  I have a big list of
books coming out in November.

On the other hand--speaking of waiting for books to come out--Lois McMaster
Bujold's next project is a fantasy of some kind, which she sold (let me see
if I remember) in some kind of bidding war between publishers.  I thought it
sounded interesting.

And for any of you who read Kristen Randle's _The Only Alien on the Planet_,
I have just finished a copy of her latest novel, which she's been trying and
failing to sell (!) called _The Gardener_.  It's so good.  I wish I could
give it to all of you.
