Is it just me, or is T. Kingfisher sounding more and more like mid-period Terry Pratchett? (This is, I hasten to add, one of the highest compliments in my lexicon). She has her own very distinct voice, but it exists very much in the same landscape as Pratchett's, the same earthy humanism, irreverence and comic timing. I am somewhat enamoured of the story I've just found, which is The Rose McGregor Drinking And Admiration Society, it's funny and acute and a sock in the eye to the die-away ladies common to balladry.

I am distracting myself with random internet wandering because I have just had to take Jyn in to the vet, she was a bit subdued and I searched her all over for bites and couldn't find anything, and it turns out she has a massive abscess inside her mouth. She's in tonight so they can keep her fasting before they operate tomorrow, and the house has only half its cat count and is very empty.

I agree! Including with the increasingly on-point humanist aspects. A bit more willingness to delve into the maggot-side of things. I think there was a joint interview between Pratchett and Gaiman on their writing Good Omens where the interviewer asked how to tell who wrote which part. Pratchett said anything with maggots was written by Gaiman.

I have just spent my day off in an ecstatic sprint through "What we pretend we can't see" and would like to salute you for you fine, fine taste in Drarry literature.
