I love this splinter: “Strings, strands, and vines in motion”!
Why, you ask?
Omighod, where to start?
OK — first, it has Cantra; who is one of my favorite characters to write.
Second — it has Cantra’s brother, Pleny, he who, in the final book, struck a teacher and thereby caused ‘way more trouble than he could ever have been expecting.
Third — it has that spaceport! That world! The smartstrands!
Fourth — it has wine! and the mother of the vine!
Fifth — oh, no, that’s enough. Let’s just say that I love this splinter, and I’m really glad I found it when I was cleaning out all those blessed typescripts.
I hope you enjoy reading this one as much as I did. If you did, please consider donating — to Cantra, to the site, or to the author who has just filled up six big black trash bags with old typescripts.
