I must issue a correction to my post earlier this week entitled “From a Certain Point of View.” I incorrectly called Spellsong and various other books 2nd person present tense, when they’re actually 3rd person present tense.
It’s that present tense bit that gets to me, but I won’t go into all that again here.
Sorry for the error and resulting confusion! I am now adding point of view and tenses to my ‘must refresh memory about’ list, which continues to grow daily.
Thanks to L. E. Modesitt, Jr. for taking the time to comment personally.
