I like the Vlad Taltos books well enough, but I'm not sure I'm up for the marathon reread, in chronological not published order, that I've set myself. Still, a refresher on who did what when is useful, as I discover on rereading Taltos itself, which clearly sets up half the later spoilers of the series. (Remains to be seen whether Jhereg, written five years earlier, does too; I rather doubt it.) But I need to bookmark with post-it notes every time there's an unexplained something, because actually finding any passage, in what I recall as a triple-stranded narrative, is impossible. And Dragon is not much better.

Shall maybe bog down in the later lacklustre Cawti Conspiracy books, but that's for then.
