I did pick up the Ace editions of the four novels I didn't already own, which let me return s-i-l's copy of Pilot's Choice. Must decide if I'm going to order Balance of Trade online, or get a local store to order it. Not going to wait on the again-delayed paperback, no. [Update: have ordered from BN.com...would have gotten it from MM directly, but the sales tax and the shipping overwhelmed my urge to support a small press. Guess I could have called to find out if I could just pick it up somewhere--they're located in Decatur, as am I.]
And then I'm debating the chapbooks. Do I want my own copies? (Yeah, of course I do.) Do I want them all? Well, tougher decision--the price on a full set is really up there, plus I'd probably add a couple of non-Liaden ones to boot. Maybe this will wait until closer to Christmas, when this year's chapbook is available. I think I read somewhere that last year had a special offer if you ordered the whole set (beyond the $3 off that the SRM order form shows now), so perhaps there will be a similar thing this year.
