Please keep writing the wizard in rhyme books. Of the ones I have I have read them over and over again.

Can you tell me if you will ever add more to the starship trouper series? I keep re-reading it at least 2x a year and keep a constant vigil in the book stores for more.
The publishers are fools if they won't do it. New publishers maybe?

Hello, I'm really glad I found this site, I was afraid you had decided to quit writing!
I want to comment on the Wizard's Last Ride; one of the commentors mentioned that he/she didn't like it because it was sad. I found it to be very sad, of course, but I read it four times the first week I had it (then my son stole it). My husband passed away several years ago and Rod's emotions at losing Gwen are so, so accurate. If I had a way, I'd be riding off into the sunset to join Joe also, even though I have two sons. When you've had a close and loving marriage for a number of years, it's like walking around with a permanent hole inside of you to lose your partner. Wizard's Last Ride just pretty much had to go the way it did in order to validate their relationship. The children are raised, they'll be fine, it's time to go!
On another front, I love the Wizard in Rhyme series also, and if there is another one coming, I shall happily line up to buy it! One of the many things I love about your books is that they challenge me with their sometimes arcane references to subjects I hadn't thought about since high school!

I am rereading your wizard books after many years, and decided to ask you where you got the spelling for the queen. I have encountered it only one other time, besides my own. I was told it was a French spelling, but have never been able to verify that. Glad to see you are still writing them (ei: The Wizards Last Ride).

Are the last 3 of the Warlock Series
going to be put out in hard back like the others in the set?

Rebecca PIERCE? That was? Forty years ago, anyway? Can this really be, or am I remembering wrong? Please do let me know. Yes, indeed I wish I'd known you were in the East back when I was =-- would have been very good to see you. I'm not much for horses any more, but I still appreciate the advice. Thanks!

Hello. I read HMW sometime in 1986/87 just after I graduated and as soon as I finished it I re-read it. Up until 1993 I must have read it a dozen times, but then I moved out of the country and started teaching English. I lent my copy to a student and never saw it again. In 2004 I ordered the book through Amazon and have read it 4 or 5 times since. I even use the book in my English lessons.
I really enjoy the book more now that age and life have given me more insight into your ideas. My students 15-17 year olds enjoy discussing the religious themes and I is a great way for me to keep all the class members participating.
This year I have bought some of the other books in the series. Oddly enough I have never read them, and I am looking forward to adding them to my curriculum.
Thank you for many enjoyable hours.

Chris, I just stumbled across this website. I noted in an earlier post that you will write one more story in the Rhyming Wizard series. I am looking forward to it, but I wanted to point out that there is still a missing chapter (an important one) in the Gramarye saga. To wit, the story og Brom O'Berin.
Who were his parents? How did they meet? How did Brom come to the royal court? How did he come to be King of the elves?
These are just a few of the questions that I hope you will answer in one last book of the beloved world of Gramarye.

Chris, Just found you in my local library! I was a big reader of mystery until my best friend introduced me to fantasy/scifi! What a wait of my years reading all that garbage when I could have been reading your AMAZING work! It has taken me 4 days to read 4 of your "Warlock Series", but how sad it is for me, I am having trouble finding some of your older work. If anyone has any suggestions were I should look please email me at LTEMT502@msn.com .... I am thirsting for MORE MORE MORE of Christopher Stasheff! Thanks all, C
