Subject: I clicked on the link provided above by Syl and I think 'The Running Vixen' is the only one I haven't got. I'm delighted to see it's a sequel to 'The Wild Hunt' which I still haven't finished but am enjoying immensely. The downside is that it's so expensive, being currently out of print - one of the copies on sale at Amazon is 77 !!!!! The cheapest is the paperback and they want 21 for that!

[> [> Me again, but I've just discovered another book I haven't got and that is 'The Leopard Unleashed' which follows on from 'The Running Vixen' - have I got a treat in store, I love her books. Unfortunately, it also is silly money. -- Kirsten, 08:36:30 02/11/07 Sun

[> [> [> Me too! These are the same two I've yet to read, and for the same reason -- impossible to find a copy of either at a regular price. And the library here doesn't have them. I try to think of it as something to look forward to, since it means I haven't run through all her books yet! -- pamelalass, 10:20:20 02/11/07 Sun

[> [> [> [> [> That one's hard to find too, but I did get it from the library. I think she has gotten better since the really early books. I've never run across another author whose early paperbacks are so in demand that the prices are so extraordinary -- you'd think someone would realize there's a strong market and re-issue them! -- pamelalass, 14:49:10 02/11/07 Sun

[> [> [> [> [> [> They are being reissued over here, with new and very tasteful covers - see the link to her website above. EC is also re-editing them and updating them in the light of new historical research etc. It amazes me as I have bought all my copies, with the exception of the last two, from a chain of discount bookshops called 'The Works'. I've never been able to get her books from WH Smiths or Waterstone's, our biggest bookshops. -- Kirsten, 14:55:40 02/11/07 Sun

[> [> I got The Wild Hunt for about $20 on Ebay, which was much cheaper than the prices on Amazon. You might want to keep an eye out there. One other thing, she has just done a rewrite on Daughters of the Grail and rereleased it. Anyone read that? This book was previously released under the title Children of Destiny as well as the title Daughters of the Grail. -- Marg, 13:25:15 02/11/07 Sun

[> [> [> Daughters of the Grail has just been released in paperback in the UK. Several of us in the UK have bought it as it is on sale in Tesco, our biggest supermarket for only 3.73 which is fantastic. It's my next book to read after I finish 'The Wild Hunt'. -- Kirsten, 13:41:13 02/11/07 Sun

[> [> [> [> I have read the original Daughters of the Grail, and I thought it was much weaker than her other books -- it was convoluted and fantastical and probably needed a good rewrite. Thanks for the reminder about Ebay, Marg! It's still amazing to pay so much for used trade paperbacks, isn't it? I wish the publisher would re-issue her earlier books too. -- pamelalass, 14:42:23 02/11/07 Sun

[> [> [> [> [> The copy I've got is the updated, reworked version. The other UK hosers who've read it, like it. I'll let you know what I think after I've read it. -- Kirsten, 15:00:45 02/11/07 Sun
