Doris Egan is a novelist, short story author, essayist, and writer of television and feature scripts. She can do all this because she has no personal life to speak of. For more information on the books, stories, and scripts, click on the "Credits" option from the Table of Contents below. For tidbits and anecdotes about how Doris stumbles through life, see "They Told Me You Were Detail-Oriented."
**IVORY BOOKS TO BE REISSUED!**
I've gotten plenty of mail asking where to find the complete set of Ivory novels, and finally I have a good answer. DAW Books will be reissuing all three in an omnibus volume called, appropriately enough, The Complete Ivory. Publication is scheduled for September 2001. Woo-hoo!

This page was loaded to SFF-Net on September 7, 1998. Since then, 71378 people managed to find their way here. What this means for civilization is anybody's guess.
Yes, I have a guestbook now. Don't tell me I'm not cutting-edge. The courageous among you may wish to sign the Guestbook . Curious thrill-seekers, on the other hand, may prefer to view the Guestbook. Or, like me, you may want to go both ways. Note: The Guestbook is down right now, and it's probably going to be a while before I locate another guestbook service and get the code up on my page. Right now, about the only thing you can do is read the previous guestbook, below, since that one requires no linking code. Anyway, none of this is going to be fixed till the television season is over in May.
And then there's the Previous Guestbook I brought with me when I fled GeoCities.
