I'm reading The Sacred Mountain right now, and I agree that it should have been the next book. I, too, was very, very disappointed in Ms Auel's book, in that it just didn't live up to the promise of the rest of them. I think this guy has writen the end of the series very, very well. Hope he can get published.

Can't beleive a seventh book is in the works! As far as I'm concerned, her sixth one is not even completed yet: what a boring, tedious and repetitive reading. Was the book edited by a profesionnal writer? I doubt it. What a disappointment!

For Emma who asked about published fanfic. Many of the Jane Austen fanfic sites have authors who systematically publish their books. There is even a website at Amazon that lists them. As for COTCB fanfic, I know it's possible, but I don't know if there are any out there. Easy enough to find out, though.

I'm reading the second earth's children book, Valley of Horses. I'm curious about how much new science was influential in Ms Auel's continuing series, including the cave paintings discovered in France in '94(cave of forgotten dreams; Herzog) Jean, did you find any new path beyond your knowledge when you had set out to write Clan of the Cave Bear, other than greater writing experience in this unusual genre?

Just finished reading the FanFic Ayla the saga continues. I really liked it. Clever way she brought Durc and Ayla back together - I even cried a little. Not quite as good as The Sacred Mountain, but well worth the read! Check it out.

Ed, I read the one you are talking about and enjoyed it very much. It was good that Alya got to meet with Durc. I also liked that she was also instramental in getting the people to accept the Clan better.

Emma, I am quite sure the FanFiction stories are only avaiable on line.

Are the fan fic stories only to be found on line, or are they possibly in paperback?

Ayla and Durc spend some time together in "Ayla: The Saga Continues" in FanFiction under Earths Children. Some other loose ends are tie up also.

Ayla and Durc reunite and talk on fanfic. Look for Brouds_Destiny. Jean Auel has laid the foundation for many more subsequent tales. Thanks Jean!
