  2. Hi, Toni! It’s “Thanksgiving Eve” by Bob Franke. His website is http://www.bobfranke.com/default.htm , and you can find the song on both “The Other Evening in Chicago,” and “In This Night.” Lyrics on the website, too.

    Hope you guys are doing well!

  3. I just would like let you know of my appreciation for “War for the Oaks”. I’m looking at my Ace original edition copy from 1987 July.

    It’s one of my prize posessions.

    Fyi…I discovered interest in you before Steven Brust. I was totally absorbed in your work and that of Roger Zelazny at the time.

    If you ever plan to expand on the ‘world’ of the Oak’s let me know.

  4. Hi from Norman OK,

    I’d never read any of your books, or (regrettably) even heard of you until I saw a sign on the shelf at Powell’s books (by the Patricia McKillip books) saying “If you like McKillip, try Emma Bull”. So I procured “War for the Oaks” and am now reading “Territory”. REALLY enjoyed “War” and am enjoying “Territory” too. My only complaint — you haven’t written enough books!! Woe!!

    Thanks for some great reading,
    Mary Morrison

  6. Just came across `Silver or Gold’ and am tremendously impressed.
    Think I’ll be trying to find you in future.

  7. Just finished Territory. Very much enjoyed it. Thanks for writing and keep up the good work.

  8. You became my new favorite fantasy writer after I read “Territory”. I then read “War for the Oaks” and “Finder”. I was surprised to find that “The Princess and the Lord of Night” was a young child’s book, but upon consideration, I don’t know why. After all, even though they are all fantasy, “Territory” was a western, “War for the Oaks” an action-adventure and “Finder” a mystery, so your a different genre should have come as no surprise.
    I an indeed interested to see what genre “Bone Dance”, “Falcon”, and “Freedom and Necessity” are.
    You allude to a lot of history in “Territory”, do you have a prequel in the works?

  11. I just found you webiste while seaching. I just wanted to say that I LOVE your book “War For The Oaks” and think it is one of the best fantasy Novels I have ever read. I have looked for other books but have not found them here on the east coast. Now that I have a list of title I will be ordering them.

    Are you still in Tucson as the web states? You could have gone to the NA Discworld Con in Phoenix two weeks ago. It was a lot of fun. Terry Pratchett is as funny in person as his writing is.

    wishing you God’s blessings. http://Www.familyradio.com is a good site to keep on the path. enjoy

  12. I may be in the minority here, but Falcon is my favorite of your novels. (Actually, it’s among my favorite novels, period.)

  14. I just finished reading Territory and my first impulse was to write a letter saying “Thank you.” It was a great story, well-told, and completely engrossing. I loved every word and was pleased that the fantasy did not dominate or dilute the power of the story.

    So, thank you.

  15. After a prolonged search, I finally got my hands on a copy of Finder. It was amazing and utterly worth the wait, so thanks for the marvelous read. I’m very much looking forward to the new Bordertown anthology.

  18. Big fan for many years and now … though I hate to be a noodge … anxiously awaiting to hear if (and when) you might be writing a sequel to Territory, which both I and my husband think is the best treatment of the whole Wyatt Earp / OK Corral story ever, book or movie. Well, honestly, I’ll read anything you write, but I would just so much love more about Mildred and Jesse!
