I wouldn't say _all_. I thought _Raising the Stones_ (my favourite) was
quite optimistic. And the True Game books are different from her
Generally I like her books. She's one of the few authors that I will by
paperbacks new instead of waiting for them to come out secondhand. Though
some of that is because I have had trouble finding books by her secondhand,
and I don't want to risk it. And part of it is because a big set of Sherri
S. Teppers in the Voyager/HarperCollins editions looks really good on the
bookshelves. Is there anyone else here who is a sucker for books that
match? Before my collection got too big I used to shelve them by cover
rather than by author :)
