I just LOVE TOR books! These are publishers who will take chances on newcomers and have won my heart over the past___years (not telling all of you people just how old I am!!--that is private!) Good Sci Fi and speculative fiction are tough to find. We need MORE!!
Natasa
115. Taylor Smith
Awesome.

Because we don’t know when we will die, we get to think of life as an
inexhaustible well, when everything only happens a certain number of
times, and a very small number, really. How many more times will you
remember a certain afternoon of your childhood, some afternoon that’s so deeply a part of your being that you cannot even conceive of your life without it? Perhaps 4 or 5 times more. Perhaps not even that. How many more times will you watch the full moon rise? Perhaps twenty. And yet it all seems limitless.

Again, as with the Pohl giveaway... noon EST = 1p EDT. Maybe you really meant noon EDT? I don't know, but it would seem likely to me.

At any rate this counts as my comment for entry into the HH giveaway contest. Thanks for the opportunity.

Wow. I'm almost glad I didn't notice this till there were 200+ comments. It's better than being number 8 or 23 or some other number barely above 5.

Sometimes, so far is better than so close.
