I just started reading Probability Sun by Nancy Kress (don't start with it, it's a sequel; read Probability Moon first) and was reminded that I've always liked her work, but somehow I never connect her early weird fantasy with her super-successful science fiction. It's sort of like Brust, who is arguably my favourite author just because I have reread his work (almost all of it; the only one I don't like is To Reign in Hell) more than any other author ever, but whom I always forget about when someone says "Who's your favourite author?"

Kress is not a favourite the way Brust is, she isn't comfortable and isn't part of the furniture of my mind, but I do seem to enjoy her work pretty consistently -- although the only ones I ever reread are The White Pipes and An Alien Light and it's been so long (15 years?) for both of those that they might sadly disappoint me the next time around. Still, it's nice to think she has several decades of work for me to catch up on, since I haven't read anything new by her since I read Beggars in Spain in my late teens, and who knows, maybe there's a gem in there.
