Well, you need not bother with anything just because someone else likes it,
of course. But...I don't think that Shinn is a great writer on the level of
DWJ, Willis, et al, and perhaps there was some exaggeration in my voice
because I was so disappointed in _JS_. But I did love two of the Archangel
books and _Wrapt in Crystal_. She is capable of delighting me, which is why
I was disappointed in her latest.
