Has lurkdom got you out of the habit of communicating with mere 
mortals, or am I just being really thick in not understanding the 
Hardy connection here? :-)

Avoiding spoilers, but wondering if your reason for liking that 
ending least might have something to do with the aspects I found a 
bit unsettling in the book.  Which are not at all ignored in _The 
Wizard Hunters_ -impressively IMO, though I can't say *why*.  Unless 
you've read it already?  I'll be really interested to hear your 
reaction when you have.
