Finished the rest of the Galactic Midway series ... they're short books, so fairly quick reads, and all very very good. While the first volume was about events that lead a small touring carnival from 1987 Earth ending up touring other planets, the second through fourth volumes each focused on a different member of the troupe.
Now I'm reading my way through the Parasol Protectorate series for the first time, thanks to a boxed set deal from Kobo, and LOVING!!! it ... currently about halfway through volume two. And want to give major thanks to all of you who've been recommending these books to me ... happiness is buddies who have excellent reading tastes and share 'em! :-)
