Maybe I missed something?

I acquired this novel because I so much appreciated Journey of the Dead and Johnny Vermillion, both of which were excellent, both as verbal constructs and as audio presentations: Two very different works that are tied together in my mind by a recognizable intelligence.

Gashade, though, is oddly vacuous: both the person and the novel. I wish I could say otherwise.

Guidall is excellent, though, as always; and there are, truly, many interesting moments in this novel.
