Lelia and Tay stumble onto a haunted sewing machine. Or do they?
Something strange is scaring the seals, and making George wonder if his Familiar, Gus, has been in the beer-fridge again.
A shadow mage ventures out beyond the sea dikes and finds something older than she imagines.
And eight-hundred-fifty kilos of Familiar starts looking through the Polish want-ads, trying to find a job, as her mage sorts out a family problem.
Four stories of high adventure and humor, with a dash of danger and a few sprinkles of folk-lore just for fun.
Got the KU version. I’ll have to wait until the 3rd before I can purchase it. 😉
Forgot to “click the box”. [Embarrassed]
I got it on KU also. Not quite sure how that works out for Alma as compared to purchase price. KU pays by the page read and I know a lot of authors figure about 60-70% of the profit they get off a sale, but I’d have to figure out how many pages the book is and look up what Amazon is currently paying per page. On the other hand when I reread it on KU Alma gets paid again. So I figure over time it evens out for the author.
Purchased. The rolled change went for good entertainment. I can hear Gus intoning ” In taberna quando sumus …”
One spelling issue. “Monterrey” id a city in Mexico. The one on the Pacific is “Monterey”.
Arrrrrrrrgh! I’ve corrected that twice. Thanks.
So there I was, a few essays into Sowell’s “Controversial Essays”, when this new book popped into the front of my reading queue….
Oh, well. There’ll be time for Sowell later; he’s timeless. Now, more than ever, is the time for a fun read.
Woohoo! Thanks, Alma!
Fun read! 🙂 Thanks! Still amazed by your output!!!
Gus reminds me of a button I saw years ago in a catalogue: ‘INCORRIGIBLE PUNSTER. DO NOT INCORRIGE’.
I’m not familiar with the settings and procedures used for electron microscopes, but 3000 microns (micrometers) is 3 millimeters. That seems like a large distance for such things.
Maybe 3000 nanometers?
I don’t know. When I went to the manufacturers’ web-sites, they used thousands of microns. (They also really, really wanted me to order one of their lovely systems. Not quite Amazon One-click easy, but they don’t make it difficult.)
Maybe that’s the width of the imaged area? That resolution seems within the limits of a visible light microscope.
I’m sorry, but I don’t have that data off the top of my head. I’ll have to go back to some textbooks that I loaned out and dig that out.
No better place to put this–
Look online for Michael Stackpole’s story =The Cards Call Themselves=. Read the description of Merlin Bloodstone: “… feeling very -necropolitan- … like a well-dressed Goth, if Goths dressed well.” Lelia and Eddie would have something to say!
*facepaw* He’s never seen glamorgoths at their finest. The couple who were in Louis XV court dress…
