I can't add much to what's already been said.  I strongly prefer his short
fiction collected in _Dreams Underfoot_, _Ivory and Horn_, and _Moonlight
and Vines_.  And what looks like another one, _Waifs and Strays_, but I
can't tell from the one quick glance whether it's new material or reprints,
coming out in a few months.  There's another one due in November called
_Tapping the Dream Tree_ that's a Newford collection.  I don't like his
novels as much, but of the novels, _Trader_ is probably my favorite.  The
others tend to blur together in my mind for some reason.  I generally don't
like short stories, but I love his so much that I always resent his novels
for not being short stories.  Maybe.
