“I would like that very much. You have a bargain, lady. I will find you here among the lost souls, trapped women, and birds. I find that my own state has improved, if only slightly. Where I was once likely to travel in the presence of a murder of crows, I find I will only be burdened by an unkindness of ravens. It gives me heart." - A. E. Poe in Nevermore”

Diane Manning I am reaching out to see if you are familiar with Les Daniels' Don Sebastian series (The Black Castle, et al.) Necon has recently reissued them as ebooks. He is also known for his history of comic books. I don't usually read in his genre and don't write in it, but you and I do share a love of pets! Best wishes for your continued success.
