I have a serious grievance Mr Stross. After finishing the 4th Merchant princes book: Merchants WarI feel cheated. You write a good story in an interesting universe so that’s not my complaint. When your novel build up toward a climactic event, You Are Supposed To Finish It In That Novel! Not stop 2 pages before the resolution!
That’s a cheap way to sell more books!
Now I have to wait until April to read the resolution of this one. Its not fair :-)
