I just ordered a copy of Carbonel because of Pamela Dean's recommendation 
thereof, and made a point of ordering it from a shop that had three or four 
other things I wanted to buy to save on the ridiculous shipping.

Guess which item of the four I ordered turned out to have JUST been sold? 
Grrrr. (No, it wasn't at that shop, so you didn't get MY copy.)

There is some edition of Carbonel that is abridged, but I don't think the 
Puffin is. Could you check for me, though, just in case?
