Thanks, Gayle ...
Howsever, I must protest this Harlotquin version of LOTM! Never!!!!!!
I guess I just feel like being adverserial today, but ... a rare book it is that is written by a different author than the original yet manages to maintain the characterizations, quirks, style, etc. of the original creator's *people*...
Generally, such things are disappointing and pitiful. BUT ... if there are some who need the Dan the Man-loin clothed-action figure heroes and the heaving bosom heroines, then this may prove meritorious on that score.
No offense to Sara Donati ... it may very well be a great tale. Though I've heard of other reviews that found it too much imitation flavored. Just wanted to have my lone voice in the wilderness heard, howsever so meekly.
