It’s here, on his LiveJournal site, with some comments already.

Also on his Dreamwidth site.

I’m really quite grateful for the signal boost!

By the way, if any of you know of other current reviews of my books, please do let me know, so  I can share the info here.  Thanks.

    Not really a review so much as a hearty recommendation by Chad Orzel:

    Hi Ms. Kirstein,
    I’d love to read your books, but I don’t have a Kindle. Is there a chance the 3rd and 4th books will be released as paperbacks?

      The Lost Steersman and The Language of Power were released as trade paperbacks, back in 2003 and 2004. Although they are now out of print, it’s still possible to get copies from booksellers, usually second-hand copies. (Uncirculated copies seem to be really pricey!)

      Amazon won’t automatically point you there… but a little searching will get you to their listing of third-party sellers who have paperback copies for sale. Easiest thing to do is put Rosemary Kirstein in the search box, and then click on the Author Page for Rosemary Kirstein that comes up in the list. Then select the format “paperback,” and they’ll give you a list of the ones available. Here’s a direct link.

      On the other hand — when you say you don’t have a Kindle, I assume you mean you don’t have any kind of ebook reader, right? No Nook, no Kobo, etc.

      But if you have a smartphone, there’s a free Kindle app you can download, so you can read ebooks without owning an actual Kindle. There’s also an app for the iPad.

      And actually, you can download a free reader for your actual PC or Mac — Amazon and Barnes and Noble both do that, although the PC Kindle reader the better of the two, I think.

      Or just read ebooks in your browser, if you have an account with Amazon (I think Barnes and Noble do that to, though I haven’t checked.)

      So… bunch of options, there…

        Thank you for getting back to me so quickly! And yes, no ebook reader, but no smartphone either. Far too expensive. I suppose I’ll have to make an account with Amazon and B&N. Would it be safe to assume that your future books will only be in ebook formats as well?

          You happened to catch me at a moment when I was actually sitting right at the computer, so — easy, quick reply.

          I don’t know about the future books… They will at least be available in ebook format, but I’d hope that paperbacks would also be possible.
