A Revolution of Rubies

Just uploaded the ebook, and if Amazon stays true to form it'll be live within a day. When that happens, I'll put up a snippet from the first chapter.
This is the sixth and (for the moment) last book in the Applied Topology series that began with A Pocketful of Stars. I failed to specify that when uploading, so I'll have to fix it at some point. Right now Amazon won't let me edit the submission, maybe because it's officially "in review," maybe because they don't let you change details on Wednesdays in January; who knows? I've spent enough time waltzing with the 800-pound gorilla for now, I'm going to do something comparatively easy and relaxing like writing the next chapter of the third Dragon Speech series and I'll poke at Amazon again later.

I had the usual fun with chapter headings:

1. The Shaimak Rubies
2. Best quality Russian vodka
3. Black bags and big dogs
4. Cuisse de nymphe émue
5. Meadow is shocked out of her sandals
6. Catch me if you can
7. Mata Hari had nothing to do with it
8. The same zip code as a poker game
9. Getting to first base in Barcelona
10. Pomegranate seeds
11. A dialect with its own army and navy
12. Varieties of sudden death
13. A civil war waiting to happen
14. Excuses for the devil
15. When in doubt, throw something
16. The Lake Shaimak Threat
17. Hostages
18. Playing tag with the mountains
19. A broken city
20. The continuous perception of reality
21. All the help he could get
22. I dislike hurting women
23. The Bronx is up
24. The dragon of the lake
25. A divided khngl

  1. Ijust finished reading the book. I have one nitpick. The altitudes you cite for altitude sickness are much too low. 2K to 4K is below the altitude of Denver (mile high). If the units were meters this would make more sense. And it would indicate high mountains as in Afghanistan.
