People talk a lot. Most of the time, I don't mind that. One of the strangest conversations I ever overheard was in a cheap pizza joint in Jersey City, and involved two teenage boys, an uncle, the police, and a pizza oven. What I mean is... you never know.
People from Jersey, LA, Juneau, Dublin, Singapore... I like to listen. Of course, at present, as I set this guestbook up, all I hear are empty, echoing corridors, like a PBS station that didn't get funding, or possibly my mind on the day after a Worldcon.
With any luck, here are some things that people who got here before you had to say.
I am very fond of the "Cheerfully ruthless" Ivory series. Any chance that you will revisit that melieu?
Wow! Half a million visitors!
Very nice! What can I say...you are truely multi-talented ^_^
I was surprised and pleased to find this intelligent site, immersed in a thicket of Star Wars & X Files Homepages. I haven't toured the site completely yet, but I intend to! Congratulations on a wonderful site. Jol
nice page dont know when anne was born shes my favorite
Hi! I'm a friendly visitor who has finally decided to leave her mark. :) I too, like so many others, long for another tale from Ivory. Theo is one of my all-time favorite heroines! I am also eagerly awaiting the sequel to City of Diamond. All of your books are such wonderful page-turners, that they invariably keep me up far into the night. Much to my dismay! It can't be dawn already.... *g*
The racoons in flight picture is inspired, by the way, bravo to Ms. Marx! I always enjoy my visits to this part of the web, thank you for sharing your whimsical and insightful observations with all the rest of us!
I love all your books and wish that you would write more. Is there any chance that you could return to the Ivory universe and finish out the story, or at least tell me if Theo got her way and adopted the little boy? When do you plan to come out with City of Opal? I would also love to read a story from you dealing more with Stephan.
Iīm the German translator of the Ivory-books. Translating these books was a pleasant experience for me, so I was lokking for Doris Eganīs page when I first entered the Internet. I was glad to find her interesting homepage but, alas!, I was sorry to read that no fourth Ivory-novel is completed so far. I urge Miss Egan to write a sequel to her Ivory-trilogy. Theodora is still young; there are so many adventures waiting for her on the four planets of that galactic sector!
I've been a huge fan since I first read "The Gate of Ivory" and am thrilled to discover not only that you write under another name, but that you have this lovely web page for me to visit. Thanks so much!

Love your books -- all of them. Thank you for writing. Hope you are having a good day! Cheers, Anne
Wonderful page, Doris. I finally, on Christmas Day, managed to make it over here.
This page just keeps getting more and more interesting. I'm looking forward to hearing your words of wisdom on any and all subjects, but I'd be willing to put up with silence if it meant you sat in your chamber struggling with a new book...
Neat, neat page, Doris. And I love that Ingres! AND the philosophy of that page. I'm late forties and just now getting a good start in that direction, but I'm trying to make up for lost time. A worthy endevour, I think.
Great pages and terrific updates. You're setting a very high standard for the rest of us.
I was so excited to hear you had a web page, and delighted to find it as fun to wander through as your books. And now there's all those stories in anthologies to track down. Gotta have something to feed the craving in between novels. :) I'm looking forward to seeing the additions here as they occur.

Favorite writer born before 1930.: Jane Austen
Favorite visual artist.: Magritte
Favorite poet.: Edna St. Vincent Millay
Recommend a book -- people aren't reading enough.: _The White Pipes_, Nancy Kress (one of her first books)
The poet question is hard -- I like so many poets for so many different reasons. Most people only know Millay's insipid stuff, which is really too bad. I'm also very fond of Yeats, and Cavafy, and Louis MacNiece, and a few dozen others.
I'm also unsure about the visual artist question, since I'm a fairly non-visual person. Magritte is disturbing, though. In the right way.
On more familiar territory... How *nice* to find this page! I've been a Doris Egan fan for a good eight years now, and it's lovely to find something out about the person behind the books.

Thank whatever deities may be for the Internet! Just when I had lost all hope and almost succumbed to Doris Egan withdrawal, this page crops up! Hurrah!
Please keep writing. You are delightful, charming, entertaining--everything every writer should aspire to.
