	I know!  I still can't get over so many having read Perilous Gard
and Georgette Heyer.

	Yes, but they hold up *so well* to re-reading.  I'm listening to the
Charmed Life audiotape on my commute today - twenty years and it's still
awesome.  I love the voice T. Robinson uses to do Mr. Baslam, particularly.
Deborah, I'm going to go through soon and select potential quotes - starting
with Charmed Life, methinks.

	And I never, ever read Time of the Ghost until this year. Never!
I'd long ago assumed I'd exhausted dwj first-reads, too. I was so wrong.
Now I think it may be high on the list of favorites. Well, they all are.
