I'm thinking of Heinlein's _Stranger In a Strange Land_ and King's _The
Stand_. Are you thinking of the same two?
Hello, I'm new here. My name is Mark Allums. I live in East Texas. I
read SF and fantasy (and a few other things). I discovered DWJ looking
for books for my niece. I have read four of the Chrestomanci books so
far, and I plan to read much more, before I pass them on to her. :)
I was referred to this list by a member of the Lois McMaster Bujold
I plan mostly to lurk, looking for news of DWJ and ideas for other
SF/fantasy books suitable for my niece. If you have any suggestions,
feel free to let me know. (Emily is 12 and has read Harry Potter and
some of the _Series of Unfortunate Events_. I have given her the Oz
books, and she has the Narnia books, though she hasn't read much of
either series yet.)
I understand that some of you are writers too. ("sallyo" for one.) May
I ask your pen names, or what you have written?
I notice many of you use "handles", rather than your real names, e.g.,
Dorian E. Gray. Is this something I should imitate?
I have done some writing, but what I have produced is strictly for my
own consumption. Currently, I take medication that seems to prevent me
from being fully able to string sentences together coherently except on
good days, so I doubt I'll be very prolific. [sigh]
That's enough for now. See ya around!
