I'm ready to discuss, although I don't know if I'll have time to read
the discussion, let alone contribute!

That's interesting.  I have a preference for structures (Sudden Wild
Magic is my favourite), but I preferred Pinhoe Egg.  My first impression
was poor, however: it was only on re-reading that I realised how
compelling the story is.  Linear, yes, but compelling anyway.  Often
with a Jones book, I read it for the first time and then turn back and
start again.  I didn't like Pinhoe enough to do that, but a couple of
days later I found myself reading it again.  And then again a few days
later still...
