I have recently reread the "Sisters" books, all of them, as have my daughters. We felt so at home in Birmingham with Mouse and Sister, and were so saddened to hear of Ms. George's death. She must have been truly a funny and wonderful person, and my condolences go to her family.

Are there any plans for a family member, perhaps, to pick up and write more books in this series? It seems a shame to have Mouse and Sister pass into literary history like their creator. Please let me know. Thank you, B. J. Aranki

Yes, Anne George wrote "This One and Magic Life". Another mystry. I liked it also.

I love Anne George mysteries! I find myself running to the library to check another one out before I compeletly finish the one I am reading. I hope she will continue to write more!

I think the idea of having someone continue the series is awful. No one else could have the same touch as Anne George did - the characters were entirely her creation. Anyone who could write as well as she did could also come up with their own characters. It just doesn't work for someone else to take over. Read some of the stuff by the guy who tried to write Nero Wolfe stories after Rex Stout died. There's not a paragraph that sounds like Stout wrote it. I would hate to see that happen to Sister and Mouse - better to just re-read the real thing!

I also love the sisters' mysteries. Anne was (and still is) one of my favorite authors. I discovered her work when only a couple were out and eagerly awaited each new book. I'll miss her. Has anyone found another author that treats mysteries with the same humor and light-heartedness? I really want to find another series similar in tone and would appreciate any suggestions.

Marci, try Jill Churchill (the Jane Jeffrey series - the Grace and Favor set are not as funny), Charlotte MadLeod (aka Alissa Craig), Sophie Dunbar (a little more risque, but funny and not over the line)

Marsha, Thanks for the suggestions. I have read a couple of Churchill and will definitely try the others. I appreciate your help.

"It's a cult... they worship blue oysters"... MST3K 'The Final Sacrifice'

Marci, I know this is a little late (i was off-line 4 a long while) but you could also try Sharon McCrumb and a newer author that's not listed on this site, Donna Andrews. These have the plus of being Southern too. I liked Anne George because she DIDN'T make fun of Southerners. So many of the "funny" mystery genre that takes place in the South tend to get their humor from stereotypes, Joan Hess leaps to mind (altho she writes so good I can forgive her and read them, others not) Yep, can you tell? I'm Southern,from the great Commonwealth of Virginia.

Can anyone steer me to a site that tells me the publication dates of Anne George's books. I'd like to find out if her first southern sisters books came out as softcovers or as hardbacks.

thanks Angela Hollifield

The first three never came out in hardback, as far as I know, unless there were book club editions. I wish her publisher would collect the three in one hardback volume - my paperbacks are wearing out.

I just heard a movie is going to be done with the sisters!

Was the movie ever made?
