Mail Call!

Woot! Woot! (Doin’ the Happy Dance!) Look what came in the mail!!……………


Oh yeah! Oh Yeah!  here we go again!  It will be the 5th time seeing ST Into Darkness! (and I am sure it will not be my last!)

My first view of the book that is a Tribute to Anne McCaffrey was a little disappointing when I first held it in my hand.  It’s not a very good sized paperback and the paper wasn’t top quality……. :o(   But then I do the ol’ flip the pages and lookey what I found!


Original sketches and painting by Michael Whelan for Anne’s books!  *sigh*.. I do love Michael Whelan’s work!  It did make me wish this was a tad bigger and a hardback on better paper……… but I’ll take what they offer!




We are mid RIP and I am only on book 3 for RIP so this will wait a little.  I am happy to say that I did meet Anne once in NY at a Creation Convention.  I will always be glad for that!

Meanwhile, I hope you all have a great Mail Call soon!
