Wishlist RABCK from ghir - thanks very much!

I put this on my wishlist back when I first decided to do a wishlist. I think I went to the bookstore and looked at the hardbacks to figure out what to put down...and this was one of them.

It must have caught my interest then, and it still sounds like it could be promising. Orson Scott Card, Spider Robinson, Harlan Ellison, Robert Silverberg, and George R.R. Martin liked it, so I'm adding it to my TBR stack with thanks. :D

Marid Audran is definitely an anti-hero. He manages to survive in the wild world of the Budayeen and still respect himself most of the time, which is no mean feat, since the Buyadeen is based on the French Quarter of New Orleans with better drugs, better surgery, and better mind-bending technology. :p

Apparently Marid has further adventures in two more books; I wouldn't mind reading those, but I don't feel like I've been left hanging by the ending of this book. I wasn't aware that the author had passed away - apparently he finished only two chapters of the 4th book in the series.

Thank you so much for mailing the book to me@Corpus Christi, Texas! I have heard of the title from somewhere but did not know what kind of story it was. Its synopsis sounds interesting, and I am looking forward to reading it.
