'To air is fuman'

Why am I reading The Wizard Hunters when I'm morally certain the woman has mixed that nasty SF into a perfectly respectable fantasy? I suppose I could reread The Death of the Necromancer instead, except that I recall that one as kind of Riverside manqué, in that Swordspoint had more atmosphere, and Riverside itself as a kind of Points manqué, in that the Points series got the atmosphere better. Not that anyone else read Swordspoint for the atmosphere, grump.

OTOH the Sapphic-or-possibly-polysexual pirate in The Fall of the Kings was wonderful, and I should have been happy to see more of her.
