Dust Cloud? no one's ever said THAT before, hmm. . . it was my original hippie girl name referring to my luxurious cloud of hair. Which I no longer have.
Ah, Ms. Bujold-I certainly hope we get more of Miles-he has quite a lot of living to do. I think I've read "A Civil Campaign" about 10 times. Her other books don't interest me as much, although I've read them. And yes, I did find Winterfair!
I like both SF and F, but wouldn't call myself a hardcore SF fan. I do read a lot of fantasy, and am glad to see a resurgence in interest in it recently, propelled, I think, by the LOTR movies.
Besides classic writers like Heinlein and Herbert, I like David Webber and Elizabeth Moon (both her fantasy and SF). I do like the Viehl books, as I saw recently mentioned here. I would also like to take the opportunity to recommend Steven Gould's "Jumper" and "Reflex" --both excellent!
Grandchildren? 4 girls, 1 boy, and an unknown to be born next Spring. All wonderful. In fact, one of the girls is named Rahvin from the RJ books (never mind that Rahvin was a bad guy, and male--they just liked the name).
