Hey Chris - welcome to the list. Don;t worry about lurking just jump
straight in there...it's not an aggressive list so you are unlikely
to find twenty people jumping down your throat if you make a slight
misquote or whatever *g*. And as for rereads, I haven't even started
the Rampart Worlds series yet, to my shame! Soon I tell myself,

I've just been flipping through some reviews of his novels and it
looks interesting - can you recommend a starting point, any
particular novel that really showcases his style?

Thanks for pointing this out Chris I had no idea about the situation.
I must admit when I went and tried to search I couldn't find it at
all, it took me a while to figure out to scroll down (because it
makes it look like that first page is all there is!), and I still
haven't figured how that mispelled 'Julien' got on the list.
I emailed Yahoo to ask them to change the spelling, to start with, so
hopefully that will happen sometime in the next millenium.
In the meantime, I changed my listing to
However, even though this is now our listing when I went and searched
for Julien or Julian May I still don't get a category listing linked
to a group....very distressing. That's when the net gets really
annoying, I wish there was a helpline I could call and say - look,
this is really bugging me can you fix it please?? Instead I'm feeling
a bit helpless. I'll check in a few days again and get back to
everyone, maybe the change in listing is nor registered
