I love Beauty, Hero, and the Blue Sword; quite like the short story
collections; am extremely fond of Deerskin in a 'this books gives me the
screaming heebie jeebies' way; utterly *despise* Rose Daughter; think
Spindle's End is thousnands of wonderful paragraphs put together to make
a downright terrible book; and think that I can't rationally assess
Outlaws if Sherwood because it hits so many of my book-loving kinks, and
thus I adore it.
