I've read both of those, Ms. Fox, and I agree they are excellent. "I Will Fear No Evil" was a great read. I didn't know what I was getting into. I'm a big fan and have read 20+ Heinlen books. My favorites are always the ones where Lazarus pops up. Have you (or anyone else) read "The Cat Who Walks Through Walls"? One last thing: I hated "The Number of the Beast." The four main charecters drove me NUTS. If Lazarus hadn't shown up I wouldn't have finished it. Did anyone else hate this book?
