    Someone still has all of my Courtney Crumrin books. I miss them more than I would have expected.

    I don't loan comic books, ever. They're too precious to me.I am still missing my Liveship Traders books I loaned to someone like four years ago, though. I never persued those cuz technically they belonged to an ex who just left them at my house. Good reads if someone is interested in seafaring fantasy. You just have to overlook the stupid, romance-novel style covers. Apparently, publishers think if something is written by a woman it needs one of those.

      Author is Robin Hobb. Series is a sequel to the Farseer Trilogy (Assassin's Apprentice, Royal Assassin, Assassin's Quest). There's a third trilogy following the same characters, the Tawny Man (I think).I just finished reading Assassin's Apprentice, and found it quite enjoyable (although the first chapter was a bit of a slog – I'm glad I persevered).

    Pursued* even.

    On the comics side, one of my goals for 2010 is to make some progress and documenting my collection again. I have a database that tracked my comics through 1998, but for a variety of reasons stopped maintaining the data and that point, and have to move the whole thing to a new platform now. Adding in misplaced items, things that were missed in my pull that I never caught, and various boxes damaged by a flooded garage (including most of my Marvel and DC "Treasury Edition" sized items from the 70's, and a large number of magazine-sized odds and ends), I really don't know what I have to any decent degree of accuracy.The same flood knocked out two paper boxes filled with SF&F hardcovers – mostly by authors in the A's and M-P's, I think.As far as actual loans go, sadly, my main problem is items that my teenaged son borrowed and destroyed/lost/loaned to a friend. I still have a fair amount of his old room to excavate (you think I'm kidding – I'm not) to confirm what's missing.

    In the late '80s, I loaned out my run of the beautiful story "Moonshadow" by DeMatteis and Muth. It was years before I got my hands on the trade. Still would love to have those issues back. Think it's time to re-read my well-worn trade. JMD…if you're listening…thanks for the lovely moments enjoying this fairy tale that never fails to moves me.
