I am loaning her Deep Secret next, because we've both just read Bimbos of  
the Death Sun (hereafter "Bimbos").  Has anyone else read this Sharyn      
McCrumb book?  It's a mystery set at a (mais oui) Con.  I can't decide if  
Bimbos might have influenced DWJ, or if I see similarities due to the Con  
experience common to both writers.                                         

I read it a while ago,  and liked it a lot, even though at the time I had
never been to a con (still haven't) and hadn't read much sci fi or fantasy
(improving in that area).  Actually, all her books are good; she mostly
writes mysteries, one series featuring a forensic anthropologist named
Elizabeth MacPherson and the other set in Appalachia (for some reason that
looks like I spelled it wrong, but I can't figure out what the problem is)
and dealing more with social issues.  Definitely worth a read.
