Why…

…am I sharing with you this picture of two out of three of my cats?

Because Jim took it with his new Nikon D200.

He sold a Leica body for it. He sold a Leica body.

It pretty much in all ways fails to suck, though.

(That’s Ella under the chair and Billie roosting on the arm of the couch, in case you were wondering.)

And another brief note re: fantasy novels; specifically, re: the three I bought the other day:

  • Raven’s Shadow was rather good. Patricia Briggs writes fast-moving, well-plotted books that may not have much in the way of Substantive Literary Depth, but are still fine entertaining reads.
  • First Betrayal was all right. The characters were rather unlovable, but the story was unusual enough to be interesting.
  • Medalon started off not-well, and has not yet showed any signs of improvement. Sigh. I liked the last Jennifer Fallon book I read… guess maybe sometimes a multi-book contract is a liability, rather than an asset.

Next time… some damn-fine all-time excelsior fantasy books.
