... I finished reading Kage Baker's newest and penultimate Company novel, The Machine's Child (reading list alert for anotheranon and shemhazai). YUM!!!!! Joseph and Alec and Mendoza and Budu! Pirates and ichthyosaurs and baby showers and a whole new definition of multiple personality disorder, oh my! We're up to the year 2352 A.D. folks ... just three years until history "disappears."
