Man. Dave Duncan. There's a name I haven't heard in a while! I think I read all of A Man of His Word, back in the day. And also some if not all of The Reluctant Swordsman. As I have absolutely no memory of anything except for the little poetry snippets the titles are derived from, I'm curious to go check out the reviews. Younger self, what were you reading?

Especially since before this post, I could have sworn that West of January was a short story by someone else entirely, but with the same general premise?

But now I'm starting to suspect that I actually read Duncan's version. Which, reading your review, is a bit weird to think about because I would've been in my early teens? But while the world-building has stuck (unless I found it elsewhere), none of the, uh... romantic escapades? remain. Which is probably for the best!
