#BookReview “SIDESHOW” Brian Kindall

Now for the review. "SideShow" takes place before "Delivering Virtue" and "Fortuna and the Scapegrace". As I have read the latter two it was really fun to get a picture of who Didier was before those two great adventures take place. "SideShow" is both a great introductory and companion to flesh out the world of Didier Rain. If you start with "SideShow" you'll be hooked. For so little pages, it does a great job of showing the complexities of the world through the eyes of my favorite swashbuckling dandy.

The one quirk I have is that I always work on a desk that is completely uncluttered. No pictures, no reference books, no scraps of paper with inspirational sayings. It’s just me, my computer, and a bare table pushed up against a blank wall. I try to rely completely on what I know, or what’s hidden in my memory. Call it a blank canvas.
