oh, a lovely review!

I saw this today --

A very nice review of the entire anthology, and especially of my "Taking the Fall Line", which was one of the stories.

I don't think I've mentioned before, but the title does hold a double meaning. One, is the obvious about how people who meet often try to give each other a line that they hope the other will fall for. But in winter sports like skiing, the "fall line" specifically means the way the slope is pitched down the mountain. Imagine if you had a snowball at the very top and you let it go -- the way that snowball rolled down would be the fall line. On very complicated slopes, there can be more than one fall line: making it very difficult for beginners, and a lot of fun for more expert skiers.
