The List rule, as William just mentioned, is for no _unspoilered_ discussion for 3 months (after hardback publication/maybe now Kindle availability).  But as long as we mark spoilered content with SP:, we can proceed with it any time.  Ah, just checked the FAQ at http://www.dendarii.com/bujold_lst.html#spoilersok -- spoilers only need to be marked for 2 months after publication.  

Oh, and the FAQ just says "after the date of first publication", so e-publication is already included!  So, discuss away -- just remember to include "SP:" in subject line.
