this year's ficathon....  
I will be posting the intro and instructions to this year's ficathon when I get back from vacation, sometime over the last weekend in May (Memorial Day weekend for those in the States.) So if you're going to participate, start thinking about what you might request, and what you'd like to write.

One question -- is it too soon to include Sharing Knife universe stories? The first book came out last year, and the second is due this summer. I don't want to Spoil it for anyone. (And in that vein, I got an ARC of The Sharing Knife: Legacy -- from LMB herself, complete with autograph! -- and it's *excellent*. And strengthens my conviction that the two books really, really should have been released as one long book.)

I can't see why Sharing Knife stories couldn't be written, if someone requests and someone else is willing to take it on. IIRC, not everyone had read the Chalion books, and we had requests and takers for those. You don't have to read the finished story if you aren't up to speed on the books.

I'd personally be very grateful if there weren't spoilers in requests or in summaries, but I think people are generally very good about that kind of thing.

I agree with altariel. I don't know that that many people will request SK 'verse stuff (it is the one Bujold canon we're getting this summer, after all), but I think it should be allowed.

I've read the first Sharing Knife book and I wouldn't mind including it. There might be complications over whether or not to include things from 'Legacy' which some people have read and others haven't, but I expect it could all be arranged.

Oh, and for the benefit of us non-Americans, when's Memorial Day?
