Vlad Taltos was arguing with Verra. As a result, he decided to go hide out in his highschool bookstore, largely on the theory that at least it should take someone interesting to find him there.

He's not there long before he's sent out front to organize some books ("Out of all the possible orders, you want just 'alphabetical'? Boring, but OK...") He'd only been at it a short time when a group of Men In Black come in, claiming to be some sort of Interdimensional Book Police. But Vlad sees something wrong with their IDs, so he realizes that these are actually here illegally, making them Rogue Interdimensional Book Police...

You may have noticed that I haven't been posting much these last few months. That's because all of my writing-energy has been going into a pet project, which has finally been completed (for the moment).

The Dragaera Timeline, version 2.0 has officially been released.

Posted on the off-chance that at least one of my Friends is enough of a Steven Brust fanboy to enjoy this, but not enough of one to read the Dragaera mailing list (where I originally sent this).

In the course of taking notes for my Dragaera Timeline, I made lots of interesting observations. These start with fairly obvious things, but move into serious criticism and fan-wank territory near the end. Oh, and I hope to have an updated draft of the Timeline up sometime this weekend. Obviously, massive spoilers. )

As I have occasionally mentioned here, I'm a big fan of Steven Brust, going so far as to maintain an exhaustively-researched Timeline of his Dragaera books. I've just had a short e-mail exchange with Mr. Brust, that started with him asking: "In the timeline, under miscelaneous events, you mention [possible spoiler redacted]. Have you any clues as to when that might have taken place? If you can put a finger on something without going through a major hassle, I'd appreciate it." Being able to be a small help to one of my favorite authors makes me just swell up with pride :-)
