It was astonishing how relaxing it was to chop vegetables.
This is reported to be the very first sentence of the new book. Interesting...

"Things you need to bear in mind, though I make no doubt it will hurt your head." Padi curled her fingers close into her palm, leaving only the thumb showing, pointing up.

"One: Shan yos'Galan's melant'i is complex and varied. He is Priscilla's lifemate, elder brother to three siblings, and my father. In addition, he is a master pilot, and a master trader. Lastly, he is Thodelm yos'Galan, keeper of the Line, its debts, and its credits. In this role, he is also advisor to the delm."

Truly sad news tonight: Steve Miller has died. He suffered a heart attack as he was about to go for a walk.

Yes, this is going to be tough for Sharon. They've been partners and collaborators for >45 years.

Wow, that long. And to lose him so suddenly with no warning. I hope that in time their remarkable legacy together can bring her some comfort.

I never met Steve in person, but his passing feels like a personal loss. Their creation has enriched my world and I feel a debt of gratitude to them both for so many years of reading pleasure.

Like you, Victoria, I never met them in person, but the loss feels personal. I've been reading their books since the '80s, and have followed their moves to and around Maine.

Yes, and I appreciate how you’ve kept us up to date over the years. Someone wrote in the condolences section following Steve’s obituary that they’d had lost a friend they’d never met. https://file770.com/steven-richard-m...ruary-20-2024/. Beautifully said.

I owe you a thanks Charlie. You introduced me to the series, as you probably have many other fortunate readers, and it’s turned out to be a wonderful gift.

(Another interesting tribute: https://www.centralmaine.com/2024/02...es-dies-at-73/)
