So I *cringe* went to Amazon.com, and I found it, not only in paperback, but with a "used" list twenty -seven copies long, and thinking "hmm...", I made the mistake of reading the exerpts, which cut off in the middle of a sentence.
So. Now I'm going completely insane (moreso, that is) and trying to stop myself from buying it online, because even though it's only $5.50, that's $5.50 USD, and that's a lot more than $5.50. And I shouldn't do that, because it's not technically *my* credit card and I *oughtn't* do that, becaue I'm bad that way and in any case no one's awake to ask. Also, I don't want to wait two weeks for it to get here. I'm in a Mercedes Lackey *groove* here, and I want to stay in it until I run out of books in the series.
...hmm. I find myself wondering now whether wonderful, wonderful catsclaws might have a copy, given that she's another admitted Lackey-junkie... *speculative look in Susan's direction, hint, hint...*
