jmtorres: Morrolan from the Taltos books. Dark Star.  (morrolan)

So I had this idea that we could reread (or read, for those new to some!) the Vlad books together, to get talking about them. Would anyone be interested in a scheduled group reread?

Unrelatedly, in the course of double-checking the book sequences I stumbled on the Adrilankha Gift Shop. I may have purchased a Shut Up, Loiosh tee, a Valabar's menu magnet, and a Klava recipe magnet (I've always meant to try that out, I bought a French press expressly for the purpose). I was tempted by the cycle tee and Paarfi's version of "My parents went to Dragaera and all they got me was this stupid t-shirt," but alas frugality won out. Shut Up, Loiosh is a much more important message to have on my boobs.
