I thought these two were good, but I never reread them. I think it's
because they were pretty humourless and I don't like that. I just read
Elisabeth Mace's THE RUSHTON TREASURE, a very good little timeslip book
which hints at a rich background story. There's a lot that's never
explained, and I rather like that. 

One of my books (I think it was TRANSLATIONS IN CLEADON) was compared with
DWJ's work and I was highly flattered... I suppose it was the creation and
belief theme that borught about the comment.
