she has, that's how this whole off-topic nonsense started, lol

Ah, well, in one of the B&tB books, she mentions in passing Catherine notices a 'private detective' passing through, & that was 'the Equalizer', from the same era's shows.
And I recommend her "Ishmael" in the ST series, she invokes 2-3 versions of Dr.Who, Battlestar Galactica characters, Han Solo, Hokas, Paladin from 'Have gun, will travel', Clint Eastwood's character from 'Rawhide', 'Bonanza', & probably several others I didn't notice - in the middle of the "here come the brides" show about the founding of Seattle.  Quite amusing to read.

Barbara Hambly has posted in her blog that there will be a third book in her vampire series (Travelling with the Dead, etc.).  They're not your ordinary vampires.

They were both excellent, but do you think there will be any interest after all this time?  At the moment, I'm reading one of her Raven books.  I wish she'd come out with more of them.

Well, it's a British publisher, so maybe more interest in the U.K.  I'd read it.  But there are a few of her older series I'd still read if she picked them up again (older than the vampire books, I mean), so maybe I'm not the best judge.

She's also contracted for two more books in her Benjamin January series, which I've enjoyed.

She's mentioned wanting to do more with Antryg and Joanna, and I hope she does -- I really like that world, though she'll need to do some serious updating of the technology after all this time!

There was a gap of 10 years, I think, between Dragonsbane and its sequels.

Antryg was my very favorite.  Still is.   :) :) :)

Oh yes, long before I fell in love with Harry Dresden, there was Antryg... :D :D

The most famous dog wizard of them all!

I loved the tortoise rubbing project.

I have to admit (though I'm swearing you all to secrecy - I never say it out loud!) that whenever I see a tortoise, I think, "Hmm... maybe I should make a rubbing of that one, get started on a collection...."

Also, the peach pits. 

And the pinwheels...

OK, you've totally outed me -- I currently have two large, brightly-colored pinwheels next to the cement sea monster in my yard!   ;D

Now, what does that mean?
I'm remembering one of the "Grub and Stakers" mysteries where the one woman used kitsch as her artistic medium, and had masses of pinwheels all over the yard.

Antryg had pinwheels in various stages of construction.  And he made a pinwheel bouquet for someone once.  We're just sharing the Antryg Windrose love.
