So it's Book Day for the new one.  Ky Vatta is back...and back in her home system of Slotter Key, summoned to a family conference.   Boring legal stuff, signing papers, swearing officially that she signed them and wasn't coerced into giving up her shares of the family business.  Dull, annoying, a distraction and interruption from her real life as the incredibly gifted space fleet commander.  But just as she's comfortably ensconced in the shuttle, sipping tea and nibbling sandwiches and chatting with an old acquaintance...well.  Read and find out.   Cover images  & more information here:  http://www.elizabethmoon.com/universes/vatta.html

Fungus Amongus: What Is It?

It rained last night and this morning; I went out the kitchen door and discovered this in the big pot of herbs on the back step:

These fungi weren't there yesterday.  They popped up overnight and more are coming.

Does anyone know what kind of mushroom that is? This pot was planted with commercial potting soil and all the plants were nursery plants from the same nursery.
