Aviva asked Jane Yolen:

Is there, or will there be, a sequel to Except the Queen? My 10-year-old LOVES it and is desperate to read more about these characters. Thanks!

Jane Yolen I am worried that your ten year old has read it. It's an adult book, has sex and swearing and nowhere was there an indication it was for kids. Arrrrgh.

That said, Midori and I have no plans for a sequel because the book did not do that well and the publisher wasn't interested. Though if I could, I would write about the education of the Dogboy and much more about the three flying sisters. A prequel rather than a sequel. I did publish a short story about Dogboy and his father Redcap called "Dogboy Remembers" published in an anthology Unnatural Worlds from a small boutique publisher called Fiction River. But it is a very brutal story.
