Just read a great article in the March/April issue of "Archaeology Magazine" - about writers of Archaeological mysteries - naming Elizabeth Peters (Amelia Peabody Series) and Lindsay Davis as the best of the current writers - I whole-heartedly agree -

Never without a Mystery!

Love Emerson & Peabody - am no shrinking violet myself! Archeology has fascinated me for years, to be able to combine that with a mystery is just the best. Haven't read Lindsay Davis, is she as good as Peters? What time period does she write in?

Peters has promoted the Nefret/Ramses duo for the last couple books, it seems just about time to bring it to the logical conclusion. Has anyone heard of the title or when the next Amelia book will be published? Am anxiously awaiting the next adventure!

Hello everyone. Just wanted to let you know that the public library is a great way to read the latest hardbacks for free so you don't have to wait for the paperback to come out. You can get on a waiting list for really popular books. I go to the libary every few weeks and get mystery books on tape to listen to in the car and while cleaning the house plus all the latest mysteries to read. (Loved "Seeing a Large Cat")

I wholeheartedly agree about the library -- I use it all the time. And as for books on tape -- I cannot bear commuting or scrubbing the floor without them! What a boon to a working/driving person is books on tape!

I just read Seeing A Large Cat, (I also belong to a mystery-book reader's club call Mystery Guild, where I can buy the hardbacks much cheaper than in the store or at Amazon)and I did very much enjoy it. It's never as fun a mystery when it doesn't involve "The Master Criminal" Sethos, though. However, the next one, The Ape Who Guards the Balance, involves that same evil Sethos, and I've gotten the book -- just haven't sat down to it yet. I'm sure once I do, I won't be able to put it down!

Hi All! I have alot to write. First for those who like the Vicky and John series check out an earlier EP called Camelot Caper. That is John's first book. Also the new Amelia Peabody comes out on June 8, I believe. It is called The Falcon at the Portal. I hope that this is the denuoement for Ramses and Nefret. Barbara Mertz does have some books out about Egyptian history. She wrote them in her professional capacity. I have not read them yet but I have heard they are good if you are interested. I would recomend The Wings of the Falcon as a Barbara Michaels first for those of you who haven't read her yet. ERIKA

Hi there... first post. I've been an EP fan for about 8 years, but until recently I've only been able to get hold of a few of her books through the public library. Can you believe that they're not stocked in *any* bookstores in England?? Thank heaven for is all I can say... Anyway, one very large credit card bill later, I've just finished "The Ape That Guards the Balance". I love the Manuscript H idea - apparently EP is writing a kind of "quartet" focusing on the younger Emersons, of which "Falcon at the Portal" is the third. I've heard that in the final book of the quartet, currently being written, all will be resolved... By the way, does anyone else think that Sethos bears some resemblance to Sir John of the Vicky Bliss books? Perhaps that's where the connection between the two series lies...
