I have just mailed this announcement to the people on my "Cracks and
Shards" update list.


I have the honor to inform you that the "Cracks and Shards" Dragaera
website, http://world.std.com/~mam/Cracks-and-Shards/, has been
mentioned in the Acknowledgements of Brust's newest Dragaera novel,
_Paths of the Dead_.

	<break character>
Dudes, I'm blown away!!!

Regrettably, the URL is misspelled, but my ISP, theworld.com (Software
Tool & Die), has graciously provided a link, and the editors indicate
that the error will be corrected in the next printing.

"Cracks and Shards" now offers direct links to purchase any of the
Dragaera books through Amazon.com, via my Books page at
  http://world.std.com/~mam/Cracks-and-Shards/books.html .

"Cracks and Shards" has joined the Dragaera webring
through which you can visit several sites all related to Dragaera.

In response to requests from readers, I have modified the white-and-gold
background of the "Cracks and Shards" home page and the Shards pages to
make it more readable.

I am still, slowly (in friction with the demands of Real Life), adding
information from my own observations and those of others.

I recommend the Dragaera discussion list, which Brust reads and
occasionally posts to. To subscribe, email
dragaera-subscribe at dragaera.info and answer the confirmation message
that you will receive.

Thank you for your interest in "Cracks and Shards". I hope that it will
continue to inform and amuse you.
