World Enough and Time, Again
I'm reading a book, A Fine and Private Place. It's apparently a love story between two ghosts, and also between two living people, at least that's where I think it's going. As far as I know, the characterizations of the ghosts, and the recluse that's been living in the cemetery for the last nineteen years are spot on, but I'm doubtful about the talking raven. He's querulous enough, like the ravens I've met, that part's right, but he's been bringing the recluse food all this time. In my experience, sharing is not a raven's best thing.
