*waves at Ginger*
I am here for Kat and the Greywalker series too!

Kat - yes Mickey (my brother has the book right now so I couldn't check easily)
He ROCKED and the dog was amazing. The whole Novella was just fricken amasing.
The whole tea party with toys for the kiddies still gives me chills. And Mickey has power, so it makes me wonder what he will end up doing, and whether he could come back or go to visit Harper in a later book....

And Kat - Lois McMaster Bujold does that different 'type' in her Vorkosigan series. It was awesome. I like the idea.

Can I just say that Philidelphia Story with Hepburn and Grant is my favorite movie and I just watched it at Christmas with His Girl Friday? *sigh* I love banter. And I think there are tons of great books that don't have to have every single sex act spelled out. It is what makes this series more Noirish and Urban, rather than Paranormal and romancy.

I aims t'please (and thanks again to Blue Ninja and the Admin for letting us take up the space). I mean.. c'mon: I'm a huge geek myself, I play RPGs and computer games, I wrote the first draft of Greywalker while I hung out at another game forum, and I read physics and history books for fun. What better place for a forum about my books? It's sure to cross-pollinate some interesting ideas.

Oh Loyal Minion, I see we have similar taste in films... His Girl Friday is hilarious!

Oh Harper you should read The Physics of Superheroes by James Kakalios if you haven't done so already it's a really neat explanation of physics, super powers, and the like. It'd probably be boring to an expert on the subject but it's pretty entertaining.

For the record I came to the for the Greywalker goodness too, I've never played rpgs and don't really know anything about them.

So I 've been reading Poltergeist again today because I want to see what it was that truned me off to the book, haven't come across it yet, but I did find one of my favrotie things about the book that really worked and made me smile. I love the scenes with Harper and Brian more than any of the others they have together in the Greywalker novles. They just work really well. He's this cute energy riddle kid and Harper just doesn't really know how to be around that, and since she usually handles herself well it's interesting to see her a bit uncertain. Just wanted to applaud that.

My friends have a daughter who is just like Brian. She's now 7, and extremely intelligemt, with an incredibly vivid and precocious imagination, but she's so much hard work. I feel for Ben and Mara, they have many years of hard work ahead with that kid.

Brian's original behaviour was more wild. My editor thought it unrealistic and asked me to tone it down. But I have a brother and the experience of a friend's son at that age who were terrors far worse than Brian. Guess who Brian is based on...?

Okay I voted for Greywalker, when I'd only read the first two. Now I'm halfway through Underground and I already want to change my vote. I love this story.

Hooray that means Greywalker and Underground are even now although it isn't reflected that way in the pole.

I finally finished reading throug Poltergesit for the second time, it's been a really busy time so it took me forever to find ttime to read it. Anyway I couldn't find any cause for what gave me such negative feelings about it the first time through. I guess it was a result of having to compete with the first book and one otehr factor. One of my favorite things about Greywalker and Underground is that there is just so much going on in them, there's plenty in Poltergeist but it's still not as much as the others. Sorry if that doesn't make much sense.
