The collection of short stories whose endless publishing delay was responsible for keeping LM Bujold's "Winterfair Gifts" from seeing English release has *finally* hit the shelves. Fair warning: Irresistable Forces is a romance collection, and it's very possible that not a single goddamn word in the rest of the book will be of interest to the standard Skiffy Bujold fan. But it's not the first time I've bought a collection for a single story from an author I liked... did the same thing with an Elf Magic collection with a really nifty Rosemary Edghill short...

The skies opened up over Central Pennsylvania sometime yesterday morning, and it hasn't let up since then. Perhaps we'll see the sun again sometime in mid-May. Well, one would hope we would... to have another year of murderously wet, cold weather throughout late Spring would do a real number on the small-grains market.
