Concision Envy

When my powers as a writer reach their glorious zenith, a few years before senility sets in, I will write something short. The proverbial Little Gem of a Book, or perhaps short stories. Meanwhile I’m glad there are people out there like the mysterious Lowly of Lowly's Book Blog, who can elegantly summarize a sprawler like Red Wolf in so few words. I particularly like his encapsulation of the politics of Alifros (two empires, both utterly evil, small indy islands getting munched) and the circumstances of the main characters (i.e., Thasha the “bribe/bride”). Nice work, whoever you are.
