cover the naked, deliver the blind, because Heaven loves the stranger who tries.

Russ Allbery at Eagle's Path nails down exactly what's wrong with Blood & Iron, from my perspective as a writer.

He's absolutely correct. It should have been in omniscient.

I didn't have the chops to do it when I wrote that book, or the balls to try. And frankly, I'm not sure I could have sold it in omni.

Whiskey & Water, on the other hand. I think I pulled it off for that one.

And I suspect Patience & Fortitude needs The Big Gun as well.

ETA And some ambivalence for the San Francisco Chronicle. I think he maybe wanted more horror in his fantasy.
