Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2003 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.

I finally got back to the Sally Lockhart trilogy. I finished Shadow in the North in about two days. Now I'm on Tiger in the Well. Who besides Pullman and Card writes such non-trashy pageturners?

Oh, and I saw Christopher Hitchens at the store Friday night. He seems like The Economist: wry and British and presenting an appearance of extreme erudition. And the in-crowd is hip to him, and you'd better be too. I'm not sure whom I disparage more with this comparison.
