    All Aboard! Locomotive has returned to the train, lights have come on in all cars, and we’re ready to go.

    When will your webmistress be replacing Echoes with Limits on your home page? Only a few more months! WHEEEEEEEEE!

    Probably not until May, and certainly not until April. Unless we change our minds about it.

    While on the subject of webish type stuff. Is there a reason the baenebooks.com page for your work http://www.baenebooks.com/s-78-elizabeth-moon.aspx links to sff.net rather than Elizabethmoon.com

    Iphinome: Yes, there’s a reason, but perhaps I should change it. Before I had my main webpage at my own domain name, I had a webpage (same design) at SFF.net, as part of my membership there. At the time, it was cheaper that way. (well, it still would be, and some people who are SFF.net members still use their included web page instead of hosting their own domain there. ) Because I host all my domains at SFF.net, and am still a regular member, we’ve just set it up to mirror the one under the aegis of SFF.net’s “People Pages.” SFF.net was my first social media site, too–we got dial-up internet service in our area too late for me to be part of the GEnie crowd of SF/F people. At any rate, when Baen was first asking its writers for online contact info, that was my contact info. And I still have an sff.net email account.

    Naomi: Coincidence: Austin’s classical music station, KMFA, was playing the Ruslan and Ludmilla overture while we were driving home from church today. I find that fast-paced music works for some action scenes, but not all–sometimes the music needs to be in opposition to the mood of the action, but in line with a deeper level of the book. Did you see the movie Master and Commander? Remember the storm at sea and the man overboard, very violent wind and waves, and the music was Vaughn-Williams Fantasy on a Theme by Thomas Tallis?….not what you’d normally expect, but perfect in that place. The characters in that era would have been familiar with the hymns using that tune (and particularly one of them, with words that fit.)

    I had wondered why it didn’t appear up to date, thank you for answering.
