InSearchofLostTime-Heuler-313x500In May, Strange Horizons posted my review of Karen Heuler’s novella In Search of Lost Time.

With that, I am caught up. At this point it is customary for me to say I hope to write more for this blog in the future. Since that sort of promise usually fails to turn out well, I’ll instead say I hope to at least link to my reviews elsewhere faster and we’ll see how that goes.

This is a book that will satisfy one of those two groups.

You may be waiting for me to explain why a review from more than a year ago is being posted now. The answer is should be obvious: because I didn’t do it before now!
