Re: TOS: Devil's Bargain by Tony Daniel Review Thread (Spoilers!)

Could hardly put it down, in spite of the fact that I've been up since 0-dark-thirty, attending a 2-hour Episcopalian Easter Vigil, followed immediately by Methodist and ELCA Lutheran services, and probably could have used a nap.

It has the usual excess verbage establishing characters that are already familiar (it strikes me as an all-too-common affliction among writers already experienced writing in milieux of their own design; probably a matter of having to suppress a writer's natural instinct), but all in all, it moves very quickly, and the only other real fault I found was that the Acknowledgments telegraphed
(when a new author is involved, some of us do take a look at the Acknowledgments and the About-the-Author very early on).

I am curious, though, given that
how does this fit into continuity?
