Possible mystery deletion!


I have the weirdest sense that when I cleaned out some spam, I accidentally deleted a real comment from a real person, out of the comment queue.

Was it yours? Has your brilliant comment mysteriously vanished? Let me know!

Or post a new comment. Your choice. Always glad to hear from you.

    Nah, not me. I never have anything brilliant to say. I’ve been in throes of getting new tenants and getting property ready for new tenants and making my new space ready for me to move into. Have finally gotten done with inspectors and now moving on to aesthetic considerations. Very taxing, but fun. I’m really tired of making decisions but will be pleased when it’s all done. Other than that, I’m over in my corner, patiently twiddling my thumbs, wishing all good things for you and your recovery.

      Thanks for responding! I have this feeling that the lost comment contained some important info, but can’t recover after clearing out my spam bin.

      And thanks for the good wishes — feeling better all the time!

    I’ve read your books and enjoyed them very much, so I looked around and found this review – sounds better than anything I could write – hope you enjoy 🙂

    Best Wishes


    Rosemary Kirstein’s Steerswoman Series

    One of the very best treatments of the scientific method in fiction that I’ve read– I suspect it may be the best, but years on the Internet make me want to hedge everything– is the Steerswoman series by Rosemary Kirstein. The main character, Rowan, is a Steerswoman, a member of an order dedicated to collecting and sharing knowledge of the quasi-medieval world in which she lives, and over the course of four books she puzzles out some amazing things about the secret origins of her world and society. It’s a joy to watch the scientific reasoning process Rowan follows, and the plots have plenty of excitement as well.

    Kirstein’s not a fast writer, and they’re difficult books to categorize, so they’ve been in and out of print for a long time, making it difficult to push them on people. However, thanks to the miracles of modern technology, all four published books to date are now available in spiffy electronic editions, put together by Kirstein herself. James Nicoll has also been reviewing them on LiveJournal, so here are both sales links and reviews for all four:

    The Steerswoman (review)
    The Outskirter’s Secret (review)
    The Lost Steersman (review)
    The Language of Power (review)

    There’s also a full series recap by Jo Walton from a few years back. And if you’re not willing to take my word that these are awesome, the fact that James and Jo like them ought to carry some weight.

    These are awesome. Go buy them, read them, force them on other people.
