question: if I rectify my ignorance of PotS, should I read Swordspoint first?


Thank you. I was trying to figure out what to read next. Danielle has a point though. What are we reading first?


That IS an excellent plug, I'm all about supporting other people's laptop habits and getting t-shirts out of it. Except I can't decide which one to get.

Sheesh, it's on my list, okay? I always read your recommendations eventually.


Okay, I have a really dumb question: is this the same Ellen Kushner that hosts Sound and Spirit?

I'm rectifying my ignorance of her books either way.


I just read both novels, in order - definitely read Swordspoint first. They're *really* different and I think POTS is a lot lighter, but otherwise you'll spoil yourself. And it makes the backstory (and love story) much, much richer when you do read POTS. :)


I just read POTS today, and really liked it. A random observation: the abrieviation you used for Privelege of the Sword is also the abrieviation for Protector of the Small (that book by Tamora Pierce you said sucked. Actually, I liked it a lot in 4th and 5th grade. )

LOVE THE T-SHIRT! I've blogged it on my LJ
and hope you get lots of orders.

Yes, Melissa, I'm the same one who does public radio show Sound & Spirit. It's not a dumb question at all; people usually ask it, one way or another. I'm glad you're discovering my books. S&S fans should probably start with my THOMAS THE RHYMER, which has more the feeling of the radio show, and is not part of the Riverside series.
