I haven't written a review on SoL for a long time, but I felt I had to lift myself out of my slough of despond for this particular story.

There's good news and bad news, Anotherp08.

First, the good news, unless you're one of those people who like reading your stories one-handed, there's no sex in it. 'Tales From Mist World' is a brilliant story especially for the Steampunk aficionados amongst us! Tales of derring-do in skyships that are a cross between Zeppelins and Spanish galleons, with a side portion of tame sky eels (A bit of Anne McCaffrey's influence maybe?). It's fresh, different, and enthralling.

Now comes the bad news. If there's a mistake to be made, Anotherp08, you've made it, sometimes multiple times. To be frank, I wouldn't post this as a first draft, let alone a finished manuscript! If you've missed a homophone I've never heard of it! Sorry my friend, but you need a good editor in the worst way!

To you, dear reader, don't let the appalling editing prevent you from reading 'Tales From Mist World' it would be worth reading if you had to translate it from Sanskrit to do it! It's hard work but worth it!
