Loving what you do

There may not be a lot of money in writing… yet, but there sure are some nice perquisites. I emailed the estimable Mr. Charles Stross to inform him that I had received a copy of his new (and first) fantasy novel, A Family Trade, and to compliment him on the rather nice job the publisher had done with the book.

Like me, Stross is a Dana aficionado, which may in part explain why he sent me an e-book of A Family Trade for review along with the two forthcoming sequels, Hidden Family and The Clan Corporate. I haven’t started AFT yet, but the basic concept is more than a little intriguing, and if he’s boldly going where I suspect he might be, I’m going to be mightily impressed.

Needless to say, reviews will be forthcoming.
