Terry,

Please keep at it! Whatever the state of your health - and we do think of your health - we lover your books, and they are as great as ever. "I Shall Wear Midnight" has shown us that our favorite author is still working at peak performance.

Thank you for all the years of joy, and please keep them coming.

Marguerite
Be Kind.

Terry,

it's a funny thing.

Your books are filled with humour, and are a funny take on the many foibles of our own dear Roundworld.

But there's something else. Through the warmth and depth and, yes, passion of the characters... they make me want to be a better person. To reach for the second answer to the question rather than the first one. To not judge someone on what they are but rather who they are, or as Martin Luther King, the content of their character. To disarm the badness of the world by making harsh and accurate fun of it. To resort to reason, not cruelty and violence.

For that, as well as all the laughs, I will always be grateful.
