How did you discover ... ?

I'm curious.  How did you discover Steve's books, and how did you
learn of this mailing list?

I learned of this mailing list from DDB's announcement on RASF*.

I first discovered Steve's books one glorious summer many years ago
when my family was house sitting for a friend.  They had a ton of
books, so I happily 2 to 3 books a day.  That was mucho fun.  One of
the books was _To Reign in Hell_, which I think I found somewhat
puzzling at the time.

Anyway, for whatever reason, I didn't seek out Steve's books and, to
some extent, forgot he was the author of TRiH.

So more recently I re-discovered his books because there were lots of
discussions on RASFW, and because Jo Walton had a rave about him at
her website: It looked like I was missing out a lot of the fun.

So then I made up for lost time: all the pre-Issola Vlad books, _The
Sun, the Moon, and the Stars_, _Issola_, the Khaavren romances,
_Brokedown Palace_, _Agyar_, _Cowboy Feng's Space Bar and Grille_, and
all 5 Liavek books.

Hm, I know I reread TRiH somewhere in there; looks like I forgot to
record it in my minimalist booklog.  Damn!
