09:11 pm: The Dragons of Springplace by Robert Reed
I'm finally reading from my to-read piles - I think it's been about a year where I've had other things I needed to read first. I have a number of Reed's books, but I've always liked his shorter works better and this is a collection of those. I read many of them in Asimov's but a number of the others are new to me. I can't pick a favorite -- they all have a sense of place, good characterization, and excellent plots. Several are in a particular universe where we get glimpses of the whole. I really enjoyed this and it's highly recommended.
