Bookishness

The last book in the Aurian cycle, by Maggie Furey, isn't as bad as the other ones. Yay! This gives me hope instead of dread when those Words: "I have another book/series in progress" are said at the end of the novel.

Though I could wish that she'd gotten that level of polish on fanfic rather than published.

But that, for she who has yet to finish a complete novel, is just catty.
Gone away, gone ahead,
Echoes roll unanswered.
Empty, open, dusty, dead.
Why have all the Weyrfolk fled?

Where have dragons gone together
Leaving weyrs to wind and weather,
Setting herdbeasts free of tether;
Gone, our safeguards, gone, but whither?

Have they flown to some new weyr
Where cruel Threads some others fear?
Are they worlds away from here?
Why, oh why the empty weyr?

-- "The Question Song", Anne McCaffrey
