I agree.  It's the only time I really wanted a sequel to a DWJ
novel--preferably a more adult sequel.  I wanted to see what Robert might
have matured into.  Speaking of Hexwood (actually that's the part I snipped)
I suppose I'm thinking of how young Ann Stavely turns out to be grown-up
Vierran; I wanted to see the kind of young woman Heather would grow up to be
as well.
