"This morning four boxes containing not quite all of my worldly possessions arrived at my doorstep. Less than two months via cargo ship is not too bad. The funny thing is that I'd almost forgotten what was in them. There were some things that I was very happy to see (my Icelandic novels, a sweatshirt, a pair of light pyjama bottoms, the tin containing my spare buttons) and other things that only made me think 'huh, why did I ship that across the Atlantic?' There's a strong argument for donating anything that you're not thrilled to see after two months living out of a suitcase."

Thanks for the reminder that I need to update the Toughs
timeline to include chronological links to all the Toughs stories. I also have to correct the dating of the earliest stories; I managed to make a mistake in my dating cheat sheet that placed all of those stories five years off their actual dates.
Not to mention getting Merrick's name wrong through the entire second part of "Rain." (*Sigh.*)
In the meantime, I've put the Toughs chronology at the end of this post. The series page for The Three Lands
has those stories listed in chronological order.( Chronological order of the Toughs stories (slightly corrected), along with some dates of birth for my characters )
