Stilton has betrayed me, plus eBook lists

Yesterday, a FreshDirect order was delivered with various and sundry needed groceries, including a hunk of Stilton cheese, one of my favorites. I had some last night.

This morning, I'm nauseous and achy and icky. The mild nausea I woke up with has mutated into a very large drill in my stomach.

This is not conducive to keeping lunch engagements. Or, y'know, functioning. Or spending time in rooms other than the bathroom. Bleah.

So I'm sharing some stupid lists I've compiled:

With the original Star Trek eBook line going on hiatus, I thought I'd post some statistics regarding the line for no other reason than I'm sick....

Ten longest eBooks in the line by word count:
1. Slings and Arrows Book 2: The Oppressor's Wrong by Phaedra M. Weldon meharet -- 39,115 words
2. Corps of Engineers: The Art of the Comeback by Glenn Greenberg -- 37,210
3. S.C.E. #57: Out of the Cocoon by William Leisner bill_leisner -- 34,109
4. S.C.E. #40: Failsafe by David Mack infinitydog -- 33,769
5. Mere Anarchy Book 5: The Blood-Dimmed Tide by Howard Weinstein -- 31,754
6. S.C.E. #38: Orphans by Kevin Killiany kvaadk -- 31,589

Crew of the U.S.S. da Vinci, broken down by number of appearances:

The S.C.E./Corps of Engineers series was very much an ensemble. That was part of the fun -- there wasn't a single star of the series, and there were plenty of stories in which the ship itself never appeared, and/or only had one member of the main cast show up. There were 74 eBooks in the line, yet even the two main characters missed out on 14 and 17 eBooks, respectively.....
