I am on vacation in Montreal this week so I probably won’t be writing much, although I had some time to read while driving down. And I’ve had some time to read today since I’m not really sure what to do with myself since my fiance is at his conference (the reason we’re down here). Tomorrow we’ll be able to do more, at least.
Of course, I had to find the nearest bookstore and I found one, Bertrand’s Bookstore, right on the street we are on! They didn’t have much for science fiction and fantasy and most of what they did have was expensive considering the US dollar is equal to the Canadian dollar at the moment, but I did end up buying the Canadian omnibus edition of The Fionavar Tapestry by Guy Gavriel Kay. I figured it was cheaper than buying the three books separately and the cover is gorgeous, so I might as well get it. It looks like that particular book is unavailable on Amazon Canada and out of print now, though, so maybe it was a harder to find book than I had thought.
I was hoping to find the third Wraeththu Histories book since I’m reading the second one now, but no such luck. Oh well. It looks like those are a lot more expensive here than in the U.S. anyway.
The Wraeththu Histories have me hooked – they’re not as gorgeously written as the original Wraeththu Chronicles, but they are still a lot of fun to read and revisiting some of the old characters is fun. I just finished The Wraiths of Will and Pleasure yesterday on the drive up here so expect a review sometime after I get back (or maybe before depending on how long I’m by myself wondering what to do today).
