I would say try Snow White, Rose red again -- I really enjoy it! de
Lint's Jack the Gaint-Killer (now published in a one book for two
volumes as Jack of Kinrowan) is wonderful. Pamela Dean's Tam Lin is
fun, although not as good as F&H (obviously...sorry F&H is my
favorite book). Nightengale is okay. I had fun with it mainly
because I was studying that period of Japenese history at the time.
Sun, Moon and Stars is not _as good_, imho, but it's still a good
read. The new one, White as Snow (Tanith Lee) has had good reviews,
but I haven't read it yet..(it's supposed to be horror, and I'm
_really_ nightmare prone) Happy reading!
