@ann_leckie Doesn't appear so.
@jehosephat You're probably right. Especially lately. I'm not sure if it's due to the style or simply due to the fact that his most recent work has received mainstream attention. Probably the latter.

Decided to pick a story from Glittership to read today and I liked it so it's also the story I'm sharing tonight.
"The Last Spell of the Raven" by Morris Tanafon from Glittership episode #47.
Yep, episode. With Glittership you can either read or listen to this story of with a definite Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell feel but in a world where magic is both far more common, and far more dangerous to use.
@shaunduke Snow Crash by Neal Stephenson and The Blind Assassin by Margaret Atwood.
@Rockwood Nice! I like discounts for being a teacher :P
@Rockwood Ooooh! I have a friend who loves the crap out of the Amber books.
@Gilbertica Well, I'll add that to my wishlist!
@Gilbertica I've never read Hambly before :o
@JulietteWade Phew. That's good to hear.
@AlexAloi That's perfectly fine. I'll accept two :P
