To Shape the Dark, ed. Athena Andreadis: a hit and miss collection; I particularly liked the Singh and de Bodard stories.

.@takealot, you delivered my mother's order to the wrong address days ago; still no resolution. What does she have to do to get this fixed?
@TAKEALOT Order # 10048525 I can't DM you. Please give me some kind of contact email for more details.

@faassen Yes; PDFs of not scanned books. ;) OCR should be good enough to fix this now.
@faassen The speed of loading is the least of the problem; scanned images of text are also not searchable, indexable, etc..
@faassen If the typeface is consistent it should be possible to OCR reliably -- but just because it's possible doesn't mean it's done. :/
The Bel Dame Apocrypha (trilogy) by Kameron Hurley: often grim and depressing, but I really enjoyed the worldbuilding and characterisation.
The Mirror Empire + The Empire Ascendant by Kameron Hurley: feels too busy; too many factions, axes; would have preferred a narrower focus.

Currently reading The Stars Are Legion. There's a fictional name which looks like a typo of a common Polish woman's name. So distracting. :/

CDs are so old now that arts & crafts websites that tell you what to do with your piles of useless CDs have begun to succumb to bit rot.
