There's a great video of a reading by Scott of the first chapter from "The Mad Baron’s Mechanical Attic," over at Fantasy Fiction. Really looking forward to this (as well as The Republic of Thieves).

Unrated.

After being disappointed by the first two books in the series i believe a background read is just too much to endure. I still pretend to finish reading the series, but after all the praise the series got i can't help but feel really let down.
