Mmm. I am so looking forward to this.

Also, since I am sick with a nasty cold, I gave myself yesterday off from
school work and lay in bed all day, reading Dark Lord of Derkholm and Year
of the Griffin. And perhaps it just demonstrates how long it's been since
I read some of DWJ's (longer) work, but I just love how the characters are
so three-dimensional and easily distinguished from each other. There's not
the feeling (::cough:: recent Deryni books ::cough::) that the people who
are supposed to be the main characters are just names slapped on some
actions and a few descriptive words.

"I'd love to go out with you, but I have to sit up with
a sick ant."
