Another in this series of melodramatic book postings. I got a spam mail from Amazon announcing a new Connie Willis. My heart raced! I immediately went to the page and was all set to pre-order it right away ... when - alas - I saw from the reviews beneath that this is not a "new" book, per se, only a new collection of short stories, all (or at least probably a good number) of which I already have in separate collections.

Sniff. I am crashingly disappointed. A new Connie Willis would make my year, but I guess it is not to be.
