If you’re desperate for a whole, not falling apart, Deed of Paksenarrion, my agent informs me that the UK edition is available via this link:


I did not know that.  But now that I’m informed, I hope it relieves any angst that comes from waiting to find out what covers Baen’s going to put on the 30th anniversary issues.   We’re getting wintry mix precip this evening.  I did not brave the highways and bridges to go to and from choir and am about to turn this off and go stretch out in bed with a mug of hot chocolate with *two* marshmallows in it.  I hope your evening is going as well.  (And yes, I am thinking about the victims of the huge California fires.)

    Of course the cover will be different (UK edition). Do they also correct american spellings in UK editions to english? I’ve never checked as I buy most of my SF in the US.

    I don’t know…sorry. The cover will indeed be different. And I love the original Paks omnibus US cover.

    I’ve opened my UK edition and found “armor”.

    After an absence of several months, Fred walks up to the door of the meeting hall. It’s night, and the darkness – not to mention the thin coating of dust – makes the notice in the glass-covered announcement board by the door rather hard to read. At least it doesn’t read “404” – so he brushes off the dust, pulls out a pocket flashlight, and tries to read the now-curling paper with the meeting notices. The latest discussion started on December 6th, and was headlined “Aha! Book Depository Has UK Edition”. That was the last topic he sat in on. Somewhat discouraged, he tries the front door. At least that’s unlocked, so he goes in. Shining the under-powered flashlight around (a “freebie” from the mechanic’s shop), he finds the light switches and turns on the lights. Now he can see the table with the placard matching the latest topic. There’s a cordless microphone sitting on the table, so Fred reaches over, picks it up, and slides the power switch to the “On” position, and somewhat hesitantly says, “Hello? Anyone home?”

    Fred hopes that even if Elizabeth is not around, Daniel, Gareth, Richard, Iphinome, or any of the other regulars is nearby, and might notice the lights on in the meeting hall. Before leaving, he leaves a note on the table. As he leaves, he turns out all the lights except the one in the foyer – maybe someone will see it.

    On his way back from looking in at Waystation Huygens (http://elizabethmoon.com/blog/) – where still no news of the missing children – Richard spots a light …

    The light here is Kings of the North or Divided Allegiance type light. Blinding off the snow covered fields that should be turning green.

    Looking longingly at the warmer, welcoming light beckoning from doorway of Paksworld.

    Elizabeth is still with us, over in Universes blog, replying to a new reader comment in an old thread:

    “… I’m taking a year off to try to get some health issues sorted. I don’t know quite what I’ll be writing or how it will come out (the health issues involve things that affect speed and difficulty of writing and the concussion in February didn’t help) ….”

    Thanks. I missed that thread or I’d have posted it. It’s a bit harder to spot the new activity over there than it is here.

    I see a light ahead. I have been searching for so long. But wait. I must be careful. Which light is it? Is the light warm, inviting and able to bring a candle to life? Mage light! Should I avoid it? Trickery, deception and lies is that their legacy? Does the light have a pearly glow, almost bringing things to life? Elf light! Clouding of the mind. Lost in the wonders of Elven mysteries. An ancient light best to be avoided by mortals. But wait, could the light that I see be true light? Bright and revealing, taking away all mystery? The light of the Gods, and the Hero’s of our time? I don’t know if I could be worthy of that light. I am willing to go forth though and look to see if this light might draw me in and take me to places that I could never have imagined. To witness the making of new Hero’s and their stories. So for me I will go towards this light and be patient, because the Gods and their Hero’s have their own timeline.

    Thanks for the updates!

    Was actually getting worried as the silence was quite unusual even for this quiet corner of the internet. (won’t say the w.. as to not attract the attention of Achrya… )

    The light minder holds up an ordinary electric bulb (bright light) and two books. “Here, traveler, these will guide you. Note that plurals never take an apostrophe and the plural of “hero” is “heroes” as this dictionary clearly shows. When lost in the depths of a murky writing question, turn on this light, sit down, and consider which book you need. If you want a plural, you will find it in the dictionary (which may also be used to ensure that you have the right word) and if you wonder whether to use an apostrophe or not, consult this book on usage, grammar, and punctuation. Or just remember that “A hero’s sword belongs to one hero, and two heroes will need two swords.” (Unless one is using a pike or quarterstaff or crossbow or….never mind; you know what I meant.) Why would I correct someone? Because that’s one of my hot buttons, using an apostrophe to signal a plural.

    I appreciate the feedback and that you read my post. That mistake won’t happen again.

    Thank you for letting me know you weren’t scared away.
