Years ago I had a discarded-from-the-library book called "Mars" with a long subtitle that I can't remember. It was from the 1940s or 1950s, and was published by an agency of the U.S. Government. It was nicely bound in hardback in red with a planet Mars embossed on the cover. It was totally great to read & full of scientist and governmental space agency "What we know about Mars" along with absolutely fabulous speculation about going to Mars, terraforming Mars, colonizing Mars, possible killer plagues from Mars, life on Mars, and so on. I lost this book or lent it to someone.... And wish I had it.

Help, lazyweb! Help me figure out what book this was!

Empire of Ivory - the 4th in the Temeraire series by Naomi Novik - is awesome and brilliant and asskicking!!! It's better than 3, it's better than the 1st book. It takes all the promise of what I thought could happen & more than fulfilled it!

I'm so happy!

There's more to say later, but for now... Aaaaigh! Just go read it.
