This entire series of stories and novels is being reprinted in one volume,
titled (of course) _Lord Darcy_ (their spelling).  It might even be out now,
but I doubt it...it's scheduled for July sometime.  I haven't read any of
them either, but Jacob has _Too Many Magicians_ on his list of books to buy
someday, so I figure I should probably see what they're like.  Baen is the
publisher; it is a trade PB format retailing for $18 US.  (Not that this is
useful to people outside the US, but it should eventually be available--more
so than the stories are now.)
