Woohoo, another convert!

I really enjoyed her earlier trilogy, which is published under the name
Martine Bates:  _The Dragon's Tapestry_, _The Prism Moon_, and _The Taker's
Key_.  Those are all fantasy.  _Tom Finder_ is more of a magical realism
book; I liked it, but not as much.  I haven't read _Heck, Superhero_.  Her
new one is called _Keturah and Lord Death_--I'm *really* looking forward to
getting it, once I have money again.  :)

I've ordered most of mine through Amazon.ca (she's a Canadian author) but I
don't know if it's a more economical way than pestering a local Australian
bookstore to order it in for you.
