Thanks for the feedback, Chris, it does sound good.  (And thanks for 
spelling the final sentence out - don't think I'd have figured out 
YPMoDMV that quickly. :) )

Right, so to fill in the books being waited for space: _The Wizard 
Hunters_, _The Well of Lost Plots_, _Tales from Earthsea_ in pb 
<waves to lurking friend who's also trying to wait for this one>, the 
new Bujold, _In the Forest of Serre_ (may have to wait for pb too), 
the 9th Stephanie Plum, and Charlie's _The Fetch of Mardy Watt_.  And 
something new by Emma Bull.
