By paperbackswap, I was just offered The Far Pavillions -- yes! Just had to be patient on WL.

Misfit, I'm looking forward to your review of That Candace Sams Book. I may have some leftover puddy around if you need to patch your walls afterwards.

:D :D I might need it, although why we are all so quick to assume it's going to be a wall-banger I don't know....

MM Kaye is wonderful if you like Pavilions you'll need to hunt down Shadow of the Moon and Trade Wind as well. Rory in TW is quite the hunk of a anti-hero.
