Me too. The "Inspector" scene in Witch Week is one of the best
DWJ. And the pirates in the Dining room in YOG. Btw did you all
see in Diana's Answers, where she said two characters in YOG
were based on unsympathetic doctors, and she turned one into a
bar stool. Lol.
Lois MacMasters Bujold does very good set pieces too, especially
parties and council chamber scenes on Barrayer. Oh and that
dreadful dinner party in A Civil Affair, I laughed so much at that I i
was glad I wasn't on a bus. Guy Gavriel Kay does this very well
too, but I wonder if he doesn't take it too far, subordinating
everythiing to stringing these flashy sps together. Sometimes it
seems a bit heartless to me.
You are trapped in that bright moment where you learned your doom.
