I've read several stories of jaylake's that gosh-wowed me. I think the first one was "Into the Gardens of Sweet Night" and there have been several others since. But the two that have gosh-wowed me the most are the two that the vast majority of you haven't seen yet -- Death of a Starship and Stemwinder.
Stemwinder was so gosh-wow that it's landed up there with some of the gosh-wow novels I remember from my youth. It is a beautiful book with excellently drawn characters in an engaging world. My pal Jay's got a lot of room to run in this place he's made for us. And we do, too.
I've not yet read Mainspring, the precursor to this one, but I will be putting my hands on it as soon as humanly possible. And the next one. And the next one.
Keep it up, pal. You're one helluva tale-spinner.
