Narcissisism, again.

Courtesy of Google Alerts, a review roundup. Private citizens have opinions, too. (this post mostly for the purpose of saving it to my memories as a roundup, but I left it public in case anybody wants to go spoiler herself.)

I have a fan at MIT: Jake Beal reviews Hammered and Scardown, very charitably. He's probably right about the datelines. I had my reasons for doing it that way, but I suspect in hindsight I could have done better. And the book design does make them kind of hard to read.

Susan Stepney of the University of York liked them, too.

On, a not-half-bad and a better-than-not-half-bad.

The Deipnosophist loved Worldwired to death. Full disclosure; David's an acquaintance of mine. As the picture of me on the entry would tend to indicate.

ellarian has two sentences on Worldwired here. Spoiler.

"Reader" reviews Worldwired here, and likes it. Spoilers. You know the drill.

M. Dionne liked Elizabeth Moon's Trading in Danger better than the first two Jenny books. And I can't say I blame anybody for liking Elizabeth Moon, frankly.

Also, Jvstin reviews Worldwired. So does tryslora, and Scardown too. (More disclaimers, these are meatspace friends of mine of loooong standing.)

eukarya (who we see around here every once in a while) liked Scardown much better than Hammered. Go me.

"Prettier Than Napoleon" (thus provoking the icon) liked Hammered pretty well.

Whatta Fiasco liked Worldwired with reservations, but liked Scardown better (though found it maybe a bit on the shallow side), and liked Hammered. For bonus points, s/he liked Melusine, too.

Elizabeth wasn't too unhappy with Hammered. And Lisa at "Entertaining the Alien" liked it.

rsadelle is disappointed by book three.

AND! stillsostrange sent fanart! Look, it's Abby Irene!

And I think that's the roundup. If I missed you, let me know. *g*
