Booking through Thursday

First a note: to those who’ve been praying and caring about me, I’m doing better. Your prayers mean so much to me, and they work, too! 😉

Now, for BTT:

I haven’t done this in a while because I haven’t had ready answers to the questions, but this one’s good:

Almost everyone can name at least one author that you would love just ONE more book from. Either because they’re dead, not being published any more, not writing more, not producing new work for whatever reason . . . or they’ve aged and aren’t writing to their old standards any more . . . For whatever reason, there just hasn’t been anything new (or worth reading) of theirs and isn’t likely to be.

If you could have just ONE more book from an author you love . . . a book that would be as good any of their best (while we’re dreaming) . . . something that would round out a series, or finish their last work, or just be something NEW . . . Who would the author be, and why? Jane Austen? Shakespeare? Laurie Colwin? Kurt Vonnegut?

Until recently, my answer would have been that I want Lois McMaster Bujold to write more about Miles…but now she is. Though it won’t be out for at least a year and probably two, I will likely survive to read it.

Other than that, while I know Dorothy Sayers and Georgette Heyer have already been mentioned, they’re on my list. But my original addition? I’d love for there to be more to Ursula K. LeGuin’s Earthsea series. I know she’s written beyond the original trilogy, but I love those books and would love to see more.

  1. More Miles? REALLY???? Woo-hoo!!! How I’ve missed that crazy-brilliant little man. He’s like Napolean, but virtuous.

    I don’t know how you could follow up “That Hideous Strength”, but I’d love another Space novel from Lewis. That, or another epistlatory (sp?) novel from Jean Webster (of “Dear Daddy-Long-Legs” and “Dear Enemy” fame).
