Reading: River of Stars, Guy Gavriel Kay.

Kay's novels have been important markers in my life ever since Stephen Ball, a friend on, turned me onto Tigana some time in the 1990s. I've said to other fans of Kay's work in recent years that I don't think he owes me as a reader anything at this point - enough of his work has mattered to me that I couldn't blame him in the least for coasting the rest of his career.

It's gratifying to find he's still got something to say.
