J.M. Ney-Grimm lives with her husband and children in Virginia, just east of the Blue Ridge Mountains. She's learning about permaculture gardening and debunking popular myths about food. The rest of the time she reads Robin McKinley, Diana Wynne Jones, and Lois McMaster Bujold, plays boardgames like Settlers of Catan, rears her twins, and writes stories set in her troll-infested North-lands.

Look for her novels and novellas at your favorite bookstore—online or on Main Street.

The Tally Master, Chapter 20 (scene 92)

Chapter 20

Gael emerged from sleep stunned and confused, still half under the influence of his dream.

"Excellent SF / frontier adventure read

I picked this up without realizing it was #2 i n a series, but got too hooked the cool world-building and characters to stop. It stands alone just fine (kudos to the author), but now I'm off to get the rest." Read more of this review »

Having been seeing reviews and mentions of this novella for quite a while, I finally got around to it. (Besides being quite interested in what other authors are doing with the newly-freed-by-e-publishing novella length these days.)

“It's a risk, I suppose. But wouldn't you learn and grow regardless of what the result was? That would be a gain, even if playing in Ringestad were not.”

Lorelin stepped lightly after her sister. “Don't just sit there, do something?”

Irisa sat on the low wall and patted the spot beside her invitingly. “Except there's also: don't just do something, sit there!”

Lorelin laughed. How did you tell which wisdom-saying to follow?”
