      five or so books, but thought the following books were a disapointment.
      I didn't read Incubus Dreams and whatever may have come after that.

      What is sort of funny is that while her Merry Gentry series has a ton of
      sex, it never bothered me until the last Merry Gentry book where I
      noticed her new tendency to write all sex and little plot was affecting
      both series. Its sad really, since I once thought she was a wonderful
      and entertaining writer.

      Betsy the Vampire...thats MaryJanice Davidson, right? I read the first
      book which I enjoyed...mostly. I would rate it an A+ all the way up to
      the ending, where it would have to drop to a "D". I read the second
      book as well, which was ok...and a short story set in the same world
      which was very funny. The books are decent and very funny, but they
      contain one of my biggest peeves = a "hero" who is a jerk. Ick. But, I
      know that other love all of her books.

      A series I have enjoyed much more is the Southern Vampire Series by
      Charlaine Harris- not literary works of genius but quite fun. And my
      favorite author at the moment is Jim Butcher- his Harry Dresden books
      are a blast.

      I have the Sonja Blue and St Germain books in my TBR pile I
      think...should I be digging them out?

      You really thought her character develops in the later books? I've read
      up to Cerulan Sins (at least I tried to get though the novel, couldn't
      finish it). I missed the little touches that were in the earlier books,
      like her collection of penguins. I understand that there is that whole
      change power issue, but it seemed to me that while Anita changed she
      became far more of a monster and less human (her non "monster"
      assoicates became very minor characters or totally disappered) and
      likable, almost like a Mary Sue. I really liked the earlier books. In
      fact after I read Butterfly I brought Narciuss in hardcover. I hated
      Narciuss (partly because there is no way that swans are that meek.
      Swans are beautiful but very nasty birds). But when Sins came out in
      paperback I thought I would try it because maybe Narciuss was just a bad
      one (didn't like Blue moon, but loved Butterfly). Hated Sins even more,
      there was even less of a plot. I know that some people have said that
      she is showing Anita coming to terms with her newfound powers, but this
      way of doing it doesn't work. I don't mind the sex; its the lack of a
      good plot. I prefer the Sonja blue and the Count St. Germain series.

      Does any one know if the Besty the vampire series is any good? I heard
      it is funny but is it good?

        I have read all of Laurell K Hamilton's books to date. The first one
        I read was "Incubus Dreams". I worked backwards from there and then
        tried the Merry Gentry series. I haven't really been able to get into
        the Merry Gentry series. I am not sure why exactly. I think I find
        it too redundant and boring, perhaps.

        The funny thing about the Anita Blake series is that I prefer the
        later books. As I started reading backwards, my first thoughts were -
        what, where is all the sex. The series has definitely changed in
        tone. I find Anita more conflicted now and unsure how to resolve her
        inner demons. And the ardeur that's quite the interesting affliction.

          Sonja Blue has sex but there is far more violence. I enjoyed it because she
          isn't romantized. The Count is good but the books are far more historical
          fiction than fantasy. Yarbro was a history prof at Berekely. The sex isn't
          graphic, more erotic and Yarbro does tend to write very good female characters.
          THe horror in the count books comes from the Count being effected by the
          historical times. The best one in the Count series is, I think, is the one that
          takes place in between WWI and WWII (path of the elicpse I believe).

              My objection was to the LACK of plot (or what I see as a lack of plot) not

              Sins and Chains) don't have much of a plot.

                  Hey This is a discussion group, a place to voice your personal opinion, there is
                  no reason for anyone to tell another person that there opinion is wrong in
                  anyway. No one is getting up in arms about anything.

                  We must also remember that vampires, since the Haunted Summer when
                  John Polidori got his little hands one them, have always been about
                  sex.



                  My objection was to the LACK of plot (or what I see as a lack of plot) not
                  the sex. You can have sex and plot (Kushiel series, Sonja Blue, Kim Newman,
                  Bergstorm, Tanith Lee) but I don't think that the later Blake books (at least
                  Sins and Chains) don't have much of a plot.

                        Hi, Margaret,

                        I have a trilogy of children's fantasy adventure books published by
                        Double Dragon Publishing: The Fisherman's Son, The City of the
                        Golden Sun, and Return of the Golden Age. Recently, The Fisherman's
                        Son was also produced as an audio book by a professional audio
                        production company, and is read by the voice actor Andrew Dollar. I
                        also have a short story entitled "Dragon Fire" published in
                        the "Illuminated Manuscripts" Anthology at DDP. I'm delighted to
                        announce that I and four other authors were also given our own
                        Imprint at DDP called DDP POD RADIO - This is a series of 30 audio
                        classes for writers about writing and book promotion. We've
                        completed 5 of the 30 audio classes so far (the first one is free in
                        MP3 format at DDP), and plan to produce 3 more audio classes every
                        month until the series is complete. I've also had poetry published
                        on the Internet and placed in the Top Ten for both Poet and Poem in
                        the most recent Preditors & Editors Reader's Poll. And, sometime
                        after this month, I'll have three more short stories published in a
                        new DDP anthology entitled "Twisted Tails".
                        More information is available on my website:

                              hi marylin

                              i happened to see one on prominante display at our local library so has i
                              hadnt read any thing by you and i like to try new authors i gave it a go ,
                              liked it so much that i went out and bought the others. my 11 year old son
                              id also just beginning to read you. i will let you know what he says when he
                              has finished.
                              he has been reading books for quite a while but has just now got into
                              fantasy ( my influence do you think )
                              anyway the reason i was asking is i am currently trying to write and
                              wondered if others did the same

                              all the best

                                Hi, Margaret,

                                Your news is very, very exciting to me! I'd love to hear what your
                                son thinks of the books. And all the best with your own writing!

                                Best Wishes,
                                Marilyn
