To quote the quotable Inigo Montoya, "I hate waiting." Why? Because I would really like to have any of the following three items NOW, plsthxbai.

1. Lessons in French by Laura Kinsale, February 2010. She is one of the few romance novelists who makes me want to read everything she's ever written. It had been so long since her last book (Shadowheart, 2004), and I'd heard that she'd burned herself out quite badly, that I had no expectation of her ever writing another book. And here one is, coming my way! Yay! That'll keep me distracted briefly, however, from thinking about
2. A Conspiracy of Kings by Megan Whalen Turner, March 23, 2010. I actually squee-d aloud when I heard it was coming out. And look! It's actually being released (according to Amazon.com) on my *birthday*. Ahem. Thank you, universe!

However, we have until the fall of 2010 to wait for:

3. Super Mario Galaxy 2, because my five-year-old wants it yesterday and OMG has to wait a WHOLE YEAR. We may buy a Japanese Wii just so that he can play it when it's released earlier in Japan. Well, probably not, but we'll wish that we did.

There are rumours of a new Pratchett as well, Unseen Academicals, that might come into my hands sooner than later, if I can beat my husband to it. But he's tricky. And it's a Pratchett. I hope that I don't have to break a tooth again to get it (see this entry for an explanation...).

Oh YES! Right from her website! I really was wondering if I'd ever read anything new by her again, and poof! There is was! Here is the splash page (http://www.laurakinsale.com/), with blurb. It looks like fun.

Does it run under DOS?

Woe, it does not!

What's wrong with DOS?

Nothing: just that Wii games don't run under DOS.
