Well, I'm glad I saw that news about Rise Like Lions
. The Mirror Universe books have been on my "I'll get to them eventually" list for a while now, but after finding out it was on its way to pulp-town I ran out to my local B&N to grab a copy. They didn't have one in the store (not surprising), but fortunately they were able to order it for me. I think they only had one copy left in their warehouse.
While I was there I saw that they did have a copy of The Sorrows of Empire
in the store, so I went ahead and bought that, too. Just to be safe.
