A bit of a look back on Major Channing, today.
Here’s a collection of some of my favorite Channing quotes from his appearances as a side character in other Parasolverse books!
“Who the devil are you?” Alexia asked, the man’s cavalier interference irritating her into using actual profanity.
“Major Channing Channing of the Chesterfield Channings.”
Alexia gawked. No wonder he was so very full of himself. One would have to be, laboring all one’s life under a name like that.
“Really, Channing,” remonstrated Alexia, “did you have to eat the man’s dog? I am convinced you will experience terrible indigestion.”
“As to your sister, she is quite a peach, is she not? You have been hiding her from me.”
Lady Maccon would not be goaded. “Really, Channing, she is practically”―she paused to do some calculations―“one-twentieth your age. Or worse. Don’t you want some maturity in your life?”
“Good God, no!”
“Well, how about some human decency?”
“Now you’re just being insulting.”
Alexia huffed in amusement.
“Channing was incredibly easy on the eyes. Lanky but muscled, with crystal-clear blue eyes and pale blond hair. He was like some winter god, Jack Frost perhaps.
If only he didn’t also shoot first in the firing squad of premier pompous twats.”

The Tome Gnome says of Soulless:
“This was my first foray into the world of steampunk, and I’m completely in love. I didn’t think I liked historical-ish books, so I passed over Soulless so many times. Perhaps I don’t like straight up historicals, but I sure do love them with vampires, werewolves, and all sorts of steampunk inventions.”

Hooray! Your books always brighten up my day!
I already put this on one of your Youtube videos (as I’ve been rereading a bit) and, well, I always try to chose names for their meaning…
Ooh! Just found out – the name Brian/Bryan means “high-born” or noble – comes from old Celtic. As does the name Kevin (which means “kind/gentle/handsome” and is probably an Irish name, originally).
