I'm still working on the last few installments of Kate's Guide to Author Websites, but first this breaking news:
I have the greatest husband evah!
A few months ago I told him offhandedly what I wanted for my birthday: complete sets of two out-of-print mystery series by one of my favorite authors. I said this in the way one might wish for world peace or children who never say embarrassing things.
Well, Happy Birthday to Me! Today I found all fourteen books nestled into my spot on the sofa. Two of them are even the same novel under different titles; Dear Husband just wanted to make sure I had a really complete set!
The books, by the way, are Sheri S. Tepper's Shirley McClintock and Jason Lynx mysteries, originally published under the pseudonyms B.J. Oliphant and A.J. Orde respectively. Sheri told me once that they're like popcorn; she wrote them on breaks between her heavy science fiction/fantasy epics. I think there's a lesson or two in there...
