Looks like they're going to get it again.

  I'll add my two cents worth--Covers don't scan well as
  a general rule, but I type them in--putting front
  cover and back cover in brackets. I also scan the
  front flap and back flap. I  put all these in the
  frontm, but I know Shelley generally puts them in the
  back. I add them to books that don't have them when I
  validate. What people also seem to scan are the pages
  that have other books by the author; I  think that's
  optional, but the general feeling is that people might
  like to read those if they like the first book. I know
  that's how I started reading other Bertrice Small
  books, and Isaac's Storm after reading The Devis in
  the White City.

  BTW,  Isaac's Storm is in the collection. It's about
  the 1900 devastation of Galveston by a catagory 4
  hurricane. It's very readable, and with Rita headed
  toward the Texas coast, it's timely. I understand
  Galveston this time has been evacuated. Only the mayor
  and city manager are staying. The 1900 hurricane was
  the deadliest  catastrophic even in the U.S. I read
  today that so far 1000 have been killed in Katrina;
  Galveston's dead numbered 6,000--more according to 
  another report.
