So, as you may recall, Dorothy J Heydt is the real name of "Katherine Blake." Under the former name, Heydt wrote POINT OF HONOR, which came out in 1998 from, let’s see here, DAW. Under the latter name, she wrote AN INTERIOR LIFE which came out in 1990 from Baen. Heydt didn’t write any other novels, though I gather she wrote a fair number of short stories.

The novel seemed quite promising, and I did enjoy it, but I must admit that I liked the start and middle much more than I did the ending. What it did offer was some interesting concepts. This is one of those books that you can either take or leave — nothing special, but certainly not a waste of time, either.
This book thrilled me because I could tell that the author understands and potentially participates in the medieval recreation group, the SCA. That and it's about an honorable female gamer (:
Pretty entertaining story; plot seemed a bit forced at times, and the characters' motivations/abilities were occasionally inconsistent, but it was good fun.
