Confession time: despite owning copies of _The White Abacus_ and _The
Sea's Furthest End_, the only Damien Broderick book I've read is
_Sorcerer's World_.  Which I suspect wouldn't be the book Damien would
choose as his main representative to the world, though it's not bad,
in the Vancean Dying Earth tradition.  Though replete with cutesy
names which spelled backward are jokes.

So which should I read next, Damien?  TWA or TSFE?  Though to be sure,
I also just picked up _Door Number Three_, so I have lots of
listmember work to anticipate. <g>
