Oh yes, absolutely agree - I *love* "Memory & Dream".  Most of the pretty
silvering has worn off the cover of my copy, because I've read it so many

For some reason, I have difficulty with "The Little Country", and have only
read it all the way through twice.  I don't know why this is, but I never
seem to feel like reading it, or to get very far into it if I do.  Peculiar.

I like "Moonheart" too, mainly because I *want* Tamson House; it's just too
cool!  And "Jack of Kinrowan", his take on the "Jack the Giant-Killer" tale,
is very good.

Until the sky falls on our heads...
