No, it didn't.

And his instance on using strange spellings for names to show the "drift" in the language is becoming more and more annoying. Especially when combined with the completely contemporary patterns of speech and vocabulary. One of the characters even refers to a "Pollyanna"!

Far too wordy, and the names are really getting to me. I'm not sure that I'll bother buying the next one in this series, even though it's now available in the UK.


OK, on to something a bit less verbose.

Asimov's SF, February 2013 by Dell Magazines.

With the demise of Fictionwise, I've had to look elsewhere for my copy of this magazine. I'm probably going to be getting it from Amazon, although the DRM is a concern.
