Well, there's always the zine publishers - that's how Chris Boucher's Star Cops novels got published. But not worth it unless you've already written the material and don't want to see it go to waste.

Can I quote the plot summary to the B7 fanfic list, please?

Sigh...as long as you're forthcoming about the Marian/DiFalco plotline, I don't suppose you'd care to outline how things would have evolved between Marian and Holland?

I was particularly curious whether Holland still needed to process the assorted traumas of FFM, or if he'd had enough closure already.

Sigh...it's hard to say goodbye to one of my favorite literary couples; I can only imagine how it must have felt to you.

Sorry for the "me, too" post, but I also would have liked to have had an opportunity see how Holland recovered after FFM.

And I would have liked to have spent more time with Marion and Holland.

But, Barbara, I hope that you are glad that your older works are still being discovered by new readers, such as I!

Where in the world are you "new" readers finding them? I'm involved in an annual used book sale and I don't think we've ever had a Barbara Paul pass through our hands. People who've bought them obviously keep them!

Well, as you asked:

If you won't tell, I'll admit that I'm finding the books in the usual places (Please keep it on the QT, as I've already read enough forum threads to know Barbara's opinion of libraries and 2nd-hand shops!), and I am grateful to those resources for preserving her works until I became aware of them.

I found out about Barbara last week via the Avon and Holland page, and immediately interlibrary loan requested the Marian Larch series. I picked up YHTRTRS, FP and FFM from the library on Saturday, and (fortuitously!) bought TAT while visiting a library book sale later that day (it was the only book they had by Barbara, or I'd have purchased more).

Then I had myself a little Marian Larch festival from Sat evening to Monday morning. ;-)

I've since been searching out (all) Barbara's other books so that I can enjoy those, too. The toughest one to obtain may turn out to be "Clean Sweep" in "A New York State of Crime".

Meanwhile, I am re-reading the ones I have, and really savoring them. (Though, I admit that if one reads them all at once, one notices little continuity glitches -- or at least, questions. FWIW.)

P.S. - My other favorite mystery authors include (but are not limited to): G.Heyer, D.L.Sayers, P.D.James.
