  1. I agree with this entirely. The reason I made my remark was that I understood your revelation to be that Delaney had been on the American's "side" all along. I disagree with that (he is on his side alone), but I seem to have misunderstood your point. The connection that Delaney had been doing work for the Americans was actually revealed earlier in the episode, during a conversation between Lorna Bow/Delaney and Countess Musgrove: "James Delaney also says to tell Colonnade that you do, indeed, have a leaky ship. But he's found the leak and will fix it, as long as you cooperate". It also gives indication why the London agents were not aware of Delaney. (1) He was asked to find out if there was a traitor amongst them, and (2) he's not exactly trustworthy. I think the second point is emphasized by the fact that Delaney essentially blackmailed the letter of safe passage from the head of secret correspondence under threat of exposure.
  2. I thought his line was about convenience, myself. He burned his bridges with the British, and he's going to the Americas, so why not call himself an American now? To say he was an American spy would imply that James Delaney has allegiance or interests to any cause other than his own. I would agree that his initial information is very likely American in origin, though. At least, assuming this Colonnade character in Ponta Delgada is an American. As for killing Dunbarton, it would give him points with the Americans, remove a possible danger to himself in the long run (and short run, considering the blockade), and give him a chance to get rid of SSS (how it happened was a bit silly to me, to be honest). On another topic, here are some quality mhmms.
  3. Mhmmm. I binge watched this in three days, and I can't name another show off the top of my head I've enjoyed more since Rome. The pacing didn't bother me at all (but then, I had the luxury of the only limitation being the time in my day), I really enjoyed the atmosphere, and I thought most of the cast was fantastic. I specifically enjoyed Tom Hardy swaggering in his coat and top hat, mumbling and "mhmm"'ing to everyone. He was a bit of a master manipulator, true, but I don't really mind that either as long as the character is broken in at least someway to offset it, and I think James Delaney qualifies in that regard. I dearly hope for more mhmm.
  4. Becca, can I flip-flop on my previous notes? I've found out the other "U" copies are held by a bookseller, so there is no need to restrict my two books anymore, given that, strictly speaking, there is no owner. And on Knight, I now know the letter, and it is "T". I also know that somewhere out there is a person who has an otherwise complete "T" set, so I'd like to switcheroo the restriction to Knight. In other words, I'd only like to sell it to the owner of the "T" set, and otherwise it'll stay with me. Thanks again!
  5. Ah sorry, it's not U. The ADwD holder exercised their right on it, but I managed to snag a copy anyway. I don't really know what's coming!
  6. I have a lettered KNIGHT OF THE SEVEN KINGDOMS incoming I would be interested in selling. I also have the SP lettered editions of the first two books. They are both letter "U" (no u), and I would actually only like to sell these to an existing "U" set, to keep - or connect - them with their family. Becca, could you add these to the list, please? Thank you!
  7. But can I wait? Well, I did manage to wait for the collection with regard to the novellas. But I feel the urge to read... rising.
  8. ! Excited for it. And damn the Two Swords publishing scheme. I may have to finally take the plunge with an e-reader now. Thanks KJP and Orbit. Belly of the Bow was indeed slow, and I think it felt more so because of the PoV change. I still think Pattern and Memory are the slowest of the books, though.
