Susan Kay Message Board

This was such a great book. Susan Kay goes to such extreme lengths in every detail of the book. I was so entralled with this book that I could not put it down. After seeing "The Phantom of the Opera" on stage and the movie version, I was excited to know about "Phantom". It was so well written that I could envision every detail of the story. I commend Susan Kay on her writing. As she states in the back of the book, it was quite a feat to follow such a blockbuster as "The Phantom of the Opera" with a book not knowing if she could pull off writing about the phantom of the opera. But she was able to do it and do it extremely well. I applaud Susan Kay and highly reccommend "Phantom" to any reader, especially those already a lover of "The Phantom of the Opera".

The petition is the fastest way to a reprint (I hope). Please search for it through a search engine as I am unable to post the site on this board. I found it using "phantom","kay", "petition". There are over 2000 signatures now.

I had a copy of this book - it is my favorite book. The book was destroyed and I went to buy another copy. I could not believe that it is out of print!! This was such a well written story, one that stirred so many emotions. I would love to see it back in print!

I have never, in my life, enjoyed a book so much as Legacy. It is a triumph such as I never thought to experience in literature. It is the most engrossing, detailed, and fluid novel imaginable. Susan Kay, I know little to nothing about you but have dozens and dozens of questions about you now. I will scour the Internet for details about you. If, by chance, this post should ever be seen by you, thank you THANK YOU thank you so much for taking 15 years of your life to so enrich mine. You are a wonderful author.

Pam, and all interested. There is a petition online to get the book reprinted. Search with google or whatever engine with the words "phantom", "kay", and "petition". Get as many folks as you can to sign! This is likely the only route to a reprint!!!

Please, is there anyway this book can be reprinted. Hardback paperback, whatever. There are so many people like me who can not afford the "ebay" price for this book.
Thanks for your consideration

i read the book years ago and foolishly
loaned it out to a co worker and never got it back.. i am heartbroken to see
what it is selling for on different
sites... it's out of sight...for all who have not read it..you will fall in
love with it if you can ever find it.
the library has plenty of copies..
