Waah!

Not everyone loves my Click chapter! Rita the Bookworm says she 'just read the most wonderful little book', of which almost every chapter moved her close to tears, but:
I was disappointed by the last two chapters though. The second-to-last took a bizarre twist for the science fiction. It was written by Margo Lanagan, who I’ve never heard of. I had a very hard time understanding what was going on in her chapter at all though. Some of it was a different twist on Nick Hornby’s chapter, but I didn’t like it.
The Maguire chapter comes in for a serve, too, though, so I'm not the only dud. And she still recommends the book—just stop at the end of the third-last chapter, people.

In other news, a certain teenager must return to school this morning, so no mucking about with selkies or dwarf-maidens before 8.30.

Bahahaha! Well, I really can't wait to read it now :) It's on my shelf, but my unread books shelf is actually about 4 or 5 shelves, eek.

Move it up, Peter. It doesn't take long to read. And Rita says that just about every other chapter except mine and Gregory's will move you to tears - you can't resist that, can you?

Wah! I'm sorry to hear about the stupid Bookworm review. I just got a 3Q from Voya for Starry Rift, so I can empathise.

3Q must still be pretty high, though - maybe they go down as low as -10Q! Anyway, I loved that antho; there aren't many anthologies that I can read end-to-end with such enjoyment. Everyone, go out and buy The Starry Rift: Tales of New Tomorrows. It's a great bunch of reads!
