bad influence

Why, oh why, oh why would reading The Disorderly Knights get me in the mood to plot my Aesir noir novel? Why?

Anyway, I like plotting, so I suppose I can't complain. Or shouldn't.

The ending of The Disorderly Knights was just glorious, just plain magnificent. Plotty and twisty and lovely. Most of you already know this, probably, but oh. So good. Will be looking for copies of this series.

Now I'm reading Summoned to Destiny, an anthology with a ksumnersmith story. Haven't gotten very far into it, but it seemed like the right thing to pick up at the time. My brain has had very firm notions of what I should read next and has not been informing the conscious bits of why, lately. Probably a coping mechanism for dealing with the wealth of choices after Christmas. Mmmmmm, Christmas books.

Edited To Add: Hey, msagara has a story in this antho, too! I didn't actually look at the ToC. I just said, "That's Karina's book!" and picked up a copy. For nifty.
