So, Saladin Ahmed forced me to make this GIF.
Because of this:
So you see, I had no choice.
By the way, have you tried Saladin’s Throne of the Crescent Moon? One of the best novels I’ve read in a long time, chock-full of terrific writing and engrossing storytelling. It should be on everyone’s list. Absolutely magical stuff.
Even if he did force me to do this.
(PS – if you know a way to make the GIF work on the page, without clicking through, let me know).
