Great finds. Shirley Damsgaard is a good one. I've been considering witch way to murder.

I absolutely can't wait to hear what you think of the Fergus novel. Some people just love it....it made my top 10 worst of all time lists (not like that means anything). His writing is good, though, I'll give him that! :)

Can't wait to hear what you think of Maus by Art Spiegelman. I really liked it myself.

Louise: I'll likely get to Maus this year because I'm in the Graphics Novel challenge. I added it to my wish list because of your great review.
