World of the Rover

I've lately been itching to return to the world of the Rover.  Edgewick Lamplighter, Wick to his friends, has got a rich and varied world, as well as an adventurous life (though he would never want to embrace that), and there are yet stories to be told about him.  How did he and Craugh the wizard become friends?  What was in that mysterious package the Warden carried off in the first book?  How was it that Wick rescued Juhg?  How did Wick help Brant reclaim his ancestral lands in the Sweetgrass Valley?  What became of that mysterious cap that Wick put on during the cemetery puzzle?

Well, you see what I mean.

One of my favorite stories I want to tell is about when Wick met the Embyr again.  You see, he was simply reading in Hralbomm's Wing, a Taurak Bleiyz romance if you must know, when the Embyr came calling on the Vault of All Known Knowledge...

I read the first two but never got around to the third. You know, so much to read, never enough time. But, I thoroughly enjoyed them both. If I could remember enough of those wonderful stories I would jump back into that world on a minute, as the old saying goes. It was fun. I don't normally read fantasy books, read Andre Norton alot years ago, never read the Ring novels (enjoyed the movies)have not gotten into "Throne" books nor HBO (I hate paying for TV)my friends tell me their both great reads, but again, time! Arrrrrgggghhhh! I interrupted my Travis McGee world recently for David Balducci & the thriller genre for awhile + I don't read fast, I settle into a book & savour it. Anyway, I've enjoyed every book of yours I've read (still trying to make time for your pre-tribulation books) so if you bring Wing back I would put him in line on my "to read" shelves, maybe in the middle, but in there somewhere. I've also got some wonderful reprints from Haffner Press to fall into, rat's not enough timmmmmeeee! Keep me posted.
