Finally, after nearly two novels, those two characters actually work together on the same issue.

Page 390, SLANT.

(and that was the one plot non-point during my second read of QUEEN OF ANGELS that did bug me a little...)

Wouldn't comment on my own thread, but as I was finishing SLANT yesterday (and I really wish I had read this shortly after publication...would have sought you out on-line seven years before I did)...but the coda about Alice and Mary had me do a "What da..." as Alice was slated to star in a straight Vid version of THE ALEXANDRIA QUARTET, the one film of that was a complete disaster,while those four books still haunt my imagination.

Moved on to DINOSAUR SUMMER last night...and over a hundred pages past the point where I had my weird Father/Son Irrational response and actually enjoying it.

Though I have to wonder if the Series of Mesas where the lost world resides actually existed, what effect it would have had on primate evolution...

But it's basic fiction, TransGenerational SF, set in some one else's fiction...not the rigor in your other works.

And a nice read, pleasant prose...and good cool down from SLANT.
