I also dreamt--which charmed me most--that you loved me still the same

Four more days until this is mine! At least I hope so; I've ordered it from Michael Whelan so I could get the print of the alternate cover art[/geek]. Does that mean that I get it on the 21st or that it's mailed on the 21st? Hmm.

Geh. It's feast or famine bookwise. A few days ago I was completely puzzled as to what book to read next. By the time I'm done with DT7 I'll also have this and this to read, as well as all the lovely recs I got from you guys.

I'm bittersweet about finishing the DT series. I've been reading it since the late eighties, so I'm well acquainted with waiting for three years or so between books (we HP fen have it easy, comparatively). *sigh* It's going to be sad to say goodbye to the characters I've known for more than a decade. This is the story that really pulled me into dark fantasy and made me realise that fantasy isn't all fairies and sword-and-sorcery and dryads-in-the-wood.

I'd never have read His Dark Materials or The Talisman or American Gods or The Lathe of Heaven if I'd never picked up The Gunslinger. Fantasy/SF fans should read this series. Don't let it get past you because you Don't Read King. It's not what you think.

Okay, I'm still sleepy, I think I'll go back to bed now. Either that or get coffee. Work at 3 and all.

ETA: Coffee wins! But only 'cause I've gotta go pay a bill anyway.
