Does any one know when the next Amelia Book comes out? I bought the compendium but even that isn't enough to hold me over until it comes out!

I just finished the "Falcon" and was wondering if anyone could tell me if there is a sequel?

Yes, there are more books in the series after "Falcon". The next book after "Falcon" is "He Shall Thunder In the Sky", followed by "Lord of the Silent", "The Golden One", and finally "Children of the Storm". There is also a new book coming out soon, "The Guardian of the Horizon", which goes back and tells a story from the Lost Years, some of the years that are skipped in between some of the novels so far.

The next book coming out (the one Ana Bento mentioned, Guardian on the Horizon) comes out March 30. It's from 1907-1908, they go back to the lost oasis to help Tarek. (Not Tarkan, I dont no wat i was thinking)

I, too, am very impatient for another Vicki Bliss. Any details on The Serpent and the Crown? Amazon mentions it is coming, but the MPM website hasn't given any info yet...

I too, would love to see a new Vicki Bliss. Any word on anything?

You can check out anytime you like...but you can never leave!

The Serpent on the Crown in the Amelia Peabody series, comes out March 29, 2005

Apparently, Ms. Peters has other obligations currently, but has not ruled out another Vicki Bliss story. There is nothing now on the horizon.

I just discovered Elizabeth Peters series of Amelia Peabody, really enjoy it and look forward to the next book, but then what is the NEXT book. It is hard to tell, the way they have them listed in the front of each book is not always the same. You get involved, they now have grandkids, then the next book listed should have been read many books ago. What is the real chronological listing of the books so they may be read in real order?

Hello Fellow Elizabeth Peters fans,

I am a costumer and I am planning an Amelia costume. I am planning to do shirt-waist and Turkish trousers both due to preference and ease of construction. My question is color. I have no idea what color to go with. I am only part way through book 3 (please no spoilers!). My mom swears there is somewhere where she says she wears "happy colors" but mom can't find it and doesn't remember if there are examples. I was thinking a lighter colored light-medium weight linen. Does anyone have ideas? Also should the shirtwaist and trousers match or no?

Chelsea, Amelia does wear bright colors, most commonly red. She often says she wears red because it's Emerson's favorite color, although it's hinted in the books that it's actually her own favorite. However, the shirtwaist itself should be white, cream, or some other very light shade. Her outfits usually include a jacket over the shirtwaist, so that can be red, as well as the Turkish trousers.

Historically speaking, you should use a tropical-weight worsted wool for the jacket and the Turkish trousers, although linen would also work nicely.

(And as a fabric maven, I have to say that people who sneer at the Victorians for wearing wool in Egypt should really TRY it first. Yeah, lots of layers of it would hurt, but given the choice and some 100 degree weather, I'd consider it a toss-up between wearing tropical weight worsted wool and handkerchief weight linen, and I'd probably go with the wool. Wonderful stuff; wool breathes WAY better than the crap we wear nowadays.)

Anyway. The reason I sought out this board was because I ran across some mentions of one last unpublished-but-hopefully-soon-to-be-published Amelia Peabody novel: The Painted Queen. I'm hoping to find some more detailed rumors. Has anyone heard anything?
