The City Under Ground by Suzanne Martel
I find myself a little disappointed that some of your [Tears] series
don't actually take a moment to tell us how the story compared to your
memory - I always look forward to that bit. Tears out of five?
It didn't live up to my memory of it, esp once I realized the bearded
electricity stealers might be intended to be descendants of Montreal's
*sucks teeth* Ick. Spotting racism, sexism and bigotry in stuff I read
as a kid always worries me. How deep did it penetrate into my youthful
I'm looking at you Piers Anthony, Orson Scott Card, H P Lovecraft.
(Fortunately most of it appears to have bounced off and is only visible
as a heightened awareness of such things nowadays)
Cheers - Jaimie
