A re-introduction.

Hi.

I'm Shelby, and I have your news by the throat, and I'm choking the truth out of it.

You're welcome.

Have you read Transmetropolitan?

I have probably asked you this before.

You have asked me, but I have not! I suppose I'd better, shall I?

Only if a cyberpunk pastiche of Hunter S. Thompson rampaging through the future sounds like fun to you... but yes.

Remind me the next time I announce I'm headed to the Twin Cities and I'll loan you my copies...

Will do!

By the way, did I ask you about The Name of the Wind? Seriously, the best fantasy novel I have read since Harry Potter, and I would highly recommend it.

It's been recommended to me before, but hearing it summarized left me pretty disinterested, honestly. I trust your taste, though, so if I run across a copy I'll pick it up.

I know what you mean! When I first heard about it I expected it to be a bad grocery store novel with overly-canonical elves and no flavor!

However, the prose is absolutely lovely and the story structure is fascinating to me. It's like a brain puzzle that coaxes you into riddling out who the characters are really well.
