Revisiting Sparrow Hill Road

I'm reading Sparrow Hill Road by seanan_mcguire. I found I was really reluctant to read the book initially. It sat in my Kindle library for almost two weeks before I started reading it in earnest. Usually when Seanan comes out with a new book and I'm reading it the moment I realize it's in my e-book library. I suppose my reluctance came from loving the story in its original form on the Edge of Propinquity. While I know that Seanan tightened it up, it went through a more rigorous editorial process, and she filled out the world quite a bit, I was afraid it wouldn't be what I remembered.

Let me just say that I was wrong. I should not have put any credence in that little voice that told me to be afraid of the changes. So far, I am delighted. I am half-way through the fifth chapter, Bullets and Bad Coffee, which maps to the second episode in its 12 story run on TEOP, Deadman's Party. I wanted a bigger world during the TEOP run and now I have it. This is more than what it was before and I'm okay with that.

So many visuals came to mind reading this chapter as they did back then and that's wonderful. Now if you don't mind, there's a girl in a diner I want to get back to.
