Dentistry, round 3, day 4  
Somewhat achier the last two days, probably because of storm fronts blowing through. However, still healing faster than expected; I was able to eat semisolid food yesterday, and I slept on my left side a bit last night.

On a related note, Seanan McGuire's fourth Toby Daye book, Late Eclipses, sucked me in and kept me reading straight through, to the point where when I finally put down the book and came up for air, I realized that my jaw was twinging and I'd missed a pain pill. I hadn't noticed until that point.

If you like urban fantasy, go buy it and read it. (If you haven't read the first three, buy them first and read them. LE will stand on its own, but it is better if you have the background.)

Glad you're feeling a little better.

I was wondering... what constitutes urban fantasy? Is it just fantasy that takes place in a city?

Not necessarily, although I think it may have started out that way. As far as I can tell, "urban fantasy" could be equally well described as "modern fantasy", or fantasy with a mix of traditional fantasy tropes and modern technology.

Much sympathy on the pain!

Thanks for the recommendation - always after new authors, especially if they write a series.
