Tim, Pauline, Ross W. and Dave Leonard -- thank you all so much for your support! Dave, hilarious posting -- but I don't think the kind folks at Del Rey would really respond favorably to readers' requests, and would not be pleased with me if I encouraged them. We'll have to wait for market forces to move in my direction. They WILL pay attention to a sudden surge in sales -- say about 30,000. That's unlikely, but it is possible. If there's one thing I've learned about publishing, it's that you can never really predict which book is going to be a hit. Keith, you made my day! I can only have one posting per day, so I'll answer you tomorrow. Thank you all!

I bought one, as did my daughter and son on the day they hit the shelves...
I was traveling for work, Son in OHIO, Daughter in Virginia...
They seemed to fly off the shelf, in OH...

I don't care which series you choose, just write-your fans miss your books.

How nice it is know that you continue to write. Since telling my son that you were my favorite and most enjoyable college professor he has made it a point to read many of your books. They have given him many hours of pure enjoyment and given me some much needed quiet time while he is engrossed in the fabulous fantasies you have created. Thank you so much for making my college classes with you fun imaginative and unforgettable. Finally, thank you for giving my son reason to read (and a bigger vocabulary).
Fond regards, Keith

Youse want that me and a few million of your fans should pay your pubisher a little visit? I sure we can explain to them the error of their ways, and have them beggin' to publish the next book in dis wonderful series.
Where'd I put that lead pipe?

Pamela, please forgive how long this answer took -- I've tried to send it twice before, but had a technical glitch. I have a pretty clear idea of the final WIZARD IN RHYME book, in which all the baddies who survived the rest of the series come boiling out to conquer Europe and force our valiant few back into the Alps. Sir Guy finally gives in and accepts the crown of emperor, then with that ammunition goes to waken his ancestor Hardishane and tell him that it's now or never. Hardishane and his paladins come charging out to lead the final counterattack and finish off this particular crop of bad guys for once and for all (though of course there will always be more villains to replace them). The book ends with the good guys back in charge, a rather glum Emperor Guy, and all the families intact. I haven't written it yet, though, mostly because the publisher isn't interested -- FELINE WIZARD's sales were too low. But I'm delighted that you want the book. All best, Christopher Stasheff

Sorry Linda, to the best of MY knowledge Mr. Stasheff has not yet condescended to return us to the world of Matthew Mantrell. I, too, eagerly await the next installment in his adventures.

I have greatly enjoyed the series above. I have reread the series and each time I see something I missed the first time. I was wondering if there were any other books in this series after"The Feline Wizard"?

Wonderful job, Niels -- I was finally able to access it. Photoshop? Hope I get a chance to let the artist know how well his work was appreciated. All best, Christopher Stasheff
