The Bloodline Feud: an omnibus edition of the first two novels in Charles Stross's The Merchant Princes series The six families of the Clan rule the kingdom of Gruinmarkt from behind the scenes.

Miriam, a hip tech journalist from Boston, discovers her alternate-world relatives with explosive results that shake three worlds. Now, as the prodigal Countess Helge Thorold-Hjorth, she finds herself ensnared in schemes and plots centuries in the making. She is surrounded by unlikely allies, lethal contraband, andmost dangerous of allher family. To avoid a slippery slope down to an unmarked grave, Miriam must build a power base of her ownwith unexpected consequences for three different time lines, including the quasi-Victorian one exploited by the hidden family.

I took a wee break from THE BLOODLINE FEUD once I got the end of what used to be the first book. (This is supposedly a revised mash-up of two shorter books, but there‘s enough recap at the start of what used to be Book Two that I dunno how much revision actually occurred.) Now I‘m back in and excited to finish it. It‘s a cool blend of portal fantasy and social SF with an emphasis on economics.

I put THE BLOODLINE FEUD aside for the Readathon because I still had 2/3 left and I didn‘t think I‘d want to binge it—then the two long chapters I read right at the end of the event set up some TOTALLY BINGEWORTHY developments.

Guess I know what I‘m doing tomorrow.

Tonight, I‘m at just over 12 hours of reading time for my 27th Readathon. I can live with that. I‘m gonna try to sleep. #deweyoct #readathon

Last night I plucked another book off my fast-dwindling digital freebies stack. For some reason, I always thought this was far-future SF, but it starts in 2002. Huh.

It also sailed right on through the three chapter test, so while I can‘t say FOR SURE I‘ll stick with it, its chances look good. It feels like 70s SF filtered through an early-2000s sensibility. Good times.

I‘m gonna post a book (or series) from my TBR every day until I‘ve shared the lot. No descriptions. No explanations. Just a whole bunch of books I haven‘t read yet.

This is Day 28.
