I don't care what they call it as long as I can FINALLY get a copy here.
I've been wanting to read it since you first mentioned it...if I like it, I
may pester you for the loan of the sequel.  Or, who knows, maybe my book
budget will have increased.  I'm back to having a lot of books I want to buy
after a period where I felt I had already acquired all the really urgent
stuff.  Well, my birthday's coming up...maybe I will get presents.
