I was under the impression that DWJ was insipired for at least some of these
mounds by Celtic burial mounds that she saw in her childhood. But I may just
be making a mishmash of many different tidbits I've read over the years. And
doesn't the dragon come out of a mound in "The Merlin Conspiracy"?

P.S. I'm not sure I've ever used mishmash and tidbits in the same sentence

Wild Robert!  Wild Robert!

And I'm glad you brought up the mound angle.  Never thought of it in
connection with DWJ works -- but look at all of these you've mentioned --
and of course, there's BLACK MARIA!
