Tepper and it's pretty good. I forgot the title though.
If you like space opera books, you might want to try the Liaden
Series by Sharon Lee and Steve Miller. They're great, at least to me
anyways. Currently I don't remember any fey books but if I do, I'll
tell you. Embiid.net have Cold Iron by Melissa Michaels (sp?) but
it's an ebook.

Ah, don't avoid Charles de Lint because of the number of books he has out.
Try MOONHEART, THE LITTLE COUNTRY, DREAMS UNDERFOOT (short story collection).
All have that de Lint touch, and all of them are different. And, yes, he's
one of my favorite authors. :)

>Ah, don't avoid Charles de Lint because of the number of books he has out.Hear hear! Charles has been writing for a long time, plus he isn't a guaranteed seller like some larger authors. His editors appareantly still will say if material needs to be cut or not. I think that's the problem with authors like McCaffrey, Lackey, Piers Anthony, etc. They will automatically sell, and are so big, their editors may be afraid to add constructive criticism.

(note: his next book, The Onion Girl, will be out next month. wahoo!)
I should also point out there are very few "big" authors I still enjoy. The only one I can think of is Laurell K. Hamilton. Oh, and Clive Barker. mreow.

have it) but Melisa's not exactly at the same level as some of the "big
names" so it's hard to find. Haven't read Sister to the Rain but have
actually seen it at Borders once in a while. Should be available through
I had the luck of reading a pre-print version of Cold Iron (she originally
published it as a sort of e-book back in the early nineties before e-books
"really" existed) and because of that when I finally read the published
version (which came out in '97?) I found it kind of odd because the plot had
changed a bit - but I'd recommend it anyway :)
If you're looking for it, the "official" author name is Melisa C. Michaels.
