So on a second read, Harbinger really holds up. Though I have some concerns about David Mack's drinking, if he can describe the noise the cork makes when it comes out of a half-empty bottle of whiskey.
I was also struck by how varied and interesting the characters are. There's a lot going on here with these people. No one is really who they seem to be.
I managed to dig up "Summon the Thunder" downstairs and should have that read by Shore Leave (middle of July for those of you who don't attend). I'm also hoping to get a copy of "Seven Deadly Sins" before then and read at least some of it. I always feel bad when I hop into the autograph lines at Shore Leave and have to confess that I haven't read the books yet.
