Orbit on the New York ComiCon Parasol Protectorate cover fun, and some cool steampunk links.
For my own amusement, Gentle Reader would you mind very much participating in this little survey of mine? I haven’t yet found a non-LJ poll coder that I like using, so I hope that the following works for most of you, apologies if it doesn’t.

Many Cats Manor says, “Normally the tired cliché of protagonists who claim to detest each other while really being in love is enough to make me give right up on a book, but Alexia and Lord Maccon are self aware enough to question their emotions, and they are willing to communicate, so their relationship evolves nicely. The characters, both main and supporting, are intelligent and interesting. I love the world Carriger has created- vampires! Ghosts! Werewolves! Deadly parasols! What could be better?”
SPOILER ALERT! Series review from All Lit Up (which I assume must mean something entirely different in the UK, or the pun is intended?), “I won’t, of course, let spill any spoilers, which basically rules out recounting the plots of books 2 and 3 in any way, but I will say that Soulless reaches a suitably exciting, complicated (in a good way) climax, and the other two books in the series are equally brilliant.”
Even bigger SPOILER ALERT! Really, DON’T READ THE BLURB ON AMAZON if you haven’t read the other books first. Joint review (no, not that kind of joint), “Either way the series as a whole is one of my favorites and BLAMELESS has done its job of leaving me desperate for more.”

Quote of the Day:
“It begins with a character, usually, and once he stands up on his feet and begins to move, all I can do is trot along behind him with a paper and pencil trying to keep up long enough to put down what he says and does.”
