Booking Through Thursday

It's that time again!

Booking Through Thursday

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?

I can think of two: Roger Zelazny and David Gerrold.

Zelazny - not necessarily for any more Amber novels, but maybe for more of his great stand-alone novels, like the early works. I'm thinking of "Doorways in the Sand" as an example.

David Gerrold - He hasn't stopped writing, but we've been waiting for the next War Against the Chtorr novel for 15 years! According to his blog he's writing it, and there is a publisher, but come on - 15 years is a long time to wait!
