I do, too. Besides the setting, which makes me think it might be one of
the Reigner worlds, I think that one of the characters has the same name as
I have a fondness for "Warlock at the Wheel". I read this story several
times before I got to read _Charmed Life_, so I felt dreadfully sorry for
the Willing Warlock. Even considering what he tried to do, I have to pity
the man for being saddled with Jemima Jane. "The Master" is another story
that stayed in my head, particularly the ending.
DWJ wrote in the introduction to _Believing is Seeing_ that "nad and Dan
adn Quaffy" was "a loving send-up of a well-known author whose writing I
admire and read so avidly that I'm sure I know where a lot of it comes
from." Anyone know who this author is? I read on a C.J. Cherryh
messageboard that it was supposed to be her.
