Narnia, I did! I sent you a thank you email, and I wondered if you had gottn it. In fact, i was just thinking I needed to send another. My initial plan to hand write thank you notes went up in the smoke of reality, unfortunately, so i went with the emily Post-forbidden email thank you, which you never even got.
Anyway, it is beautiful! I looked for your name as a singer...

Don't worry about it Elizabeth my email has been acting strange, which is probably why I didn't receive your email. I'm just relieved to hear that it got to you ok. (I was just going to send you an email, but I seem to have lost your address too! I'm really on a roll here!)
I'm not on the singers list, though friends of mine are. I have performed a few of those pieces with other choirs though...they're amazing.

I really enjoyed the Gormenghast trilogy by Mervyn Peake. Unfortunately, the third novel is not as polished as the first two due to Peake's deteriorating health, although it is still worth the read. If possible, get The Gormenghast Novels which includes all three in a single volume, as well as two introductions and some critical assessments. The individual novels are Titus Groan, Gormenghast, and Titus Alone. The books are also illustrated by Peake.
Edit: This is not a series, but The Last Unicorn by Peter S. Beagle is a beautiful stand-alone novel.
Belle, you are a truly evil woman. Did you read my blame-placing post in my other thread? Now I have purchased the hardcover of "Elegy," which means I will have to purchase the paperback just to keep it a paperback-only series. Either that, or wait until this summer for the paperback.
Anyway, I blame you fo this. I was so happy with the stand alone trilogy of my imagination.
