Not yet. I might not participate. This puts some pressure on me.
Kallor shrugged. 'I've walked this land when the T'lan Imass were but children. I've commanded armies a hundred thousand strong. I've spread the fire of my wrath across entire continents, and sat alone upon tall thrones. Do you grasp the meaning of this?'

'Yes' said Caladan Brood. 'You never learn'

I read this in December, one of the best books of the year, alongisde A Memory Called Empire.

Beginning might be a little dense, as you're throw in the middle of things, but things get clear pretty well after that and the payoff is really good.
Slow and steady wins the race.

lol, I sort of want to re-read for the book club (I will be participating in discussion anyway!) but my library reservation for Memory Called Empire just came in, and I want to read that before Hugo nominations close, so... :D
