In addition to my A&O reread, I’ve been rereading Ilona Andrews’ Kate Daniels series. Except the final book. Something in me doesn’t want to reread that book right now.

I enjoy the Kat Daniels series. Do you think maybe you don't want it to end?

Oh, that’s definitely a part of it. Also, I thought the end of the book was rushed and not up to the usual Ilona Andrews standards, so while I love the book for many reasons, I really don’t like the end of the book. It was too neat, I think. *shrugs*

Yup!
We've had our toad for the 2020s, it's got to get better from here!

I expect to soon be reading Charles de Lint's new story "Juniper Wiles."

I saw that and was very tempted.

I've just started it now. And here's a comment of his, from his intro:
"From time to time I’ve seen myself cited as the "father of urban fantasy," and while I may not quite agree, that's a conversation for another time. What strikes me as particularly odd about being described that way is how different today's urban fantasy is from my own work, especially my novels set in Newford.
 Now, don't get me wrong: I really like some urban fantasy—Melissa F. Olson and Patricia Briggs being among my favourite authors, the sort that when a new book of theirs arrives it takes precedence over all other reading."

I can’t find a loose copy of this; I have heard it read on the BBC, but it’s marked “no longer available” on their website. In any case, it you have the chance to read/listen to it, do so. It’s one of the best short stories that I’ve heard. Stick with it, it doesn’t go where you think it will.

"The Cycle" (2005) – John Connolly under the pseudonym Laura Froom (after the titular vampire in a story from Nocturnes) in Moments: Short Stories by Irish Women Writers in Aid of the Victims of the Tsunami. Edited by Ciara Considine.

I'm reading the latest Valdemar book by Mercedes Lackey, about the founding of the country, and she contradicts previous books in the FIRST SENTENCE.
I won't say I lost interest, but my respect for her suffered another drop.
