Hi, and thanks for the mention.

Also, thanks for the review of BREATHING WATER. The next Poke, due in August, is THE QUEEN OF PATPONG.

I'm doing the online review work because most publishers are hopeless at it. If you'd like me to send you an ARC in, say, June, please e-mail me at thallinan@gmail.com and let me know. (With an address, of course.)

Thanks again.
