"Well, by a roundabout series of phone calls and vague threats of bodily harm, I eventually got the e-mail address of that reviewer," Greg said. "And I sent him what I thought was a quite polite but firmly-worded missive to the effect that his review of Retrograde Maneuvers was the bunk."

"Oh yes?" said Brigid, stifling a yawn. "And...?"

"Well, he wrote back and told me that I was being neurotic. Then he started talking about Steve Martin."

Brigid chuckled. "I can see it," she said.

Speaking of Steve Martin

Well, I succumbed.

Specifically, I succumbed to my literary urges and got laurie_robey to take me over to Borders on our lunch break today. There, I picked up The Pleasure of My Company by Steve Martin, Four to Go by Rex Stout, an audio edition of Jeeves and the Feudal Spirit by P.G. Wodehouse, and (because I was really weak) two miniatures booster packs.

We also recently picked up Gil's All-Fright Diner by A. Lee Martinez. That gives us three new books and a new audiobook for the California trip. If that's not enough, we'll be going to Powell's while we're in Portland, I'm sure they'll have something worthwhile.
