Hm... ok, so still not really worth me seeking it out--Native Tongue is
back in print, but afaik neither of the two sequels are. Fair enough. At
least if I see it in a used book shop someday, I'll know I can snatch it
up & probably read it w/o wanting to scratch my eyes out before I'm done.

Nope! For some reason they didn't really sound intriguing to me.
