I hope it’s permissible for an author to spend an inordinate number of hours in gleeful pride (or prideful glee?) over a review in THE HORN BOOK. In any case, that’s what I’ve been doing.
Well, needless to say I’m delighted you liked THE BLACK CAULDRON. Seriously delighted, for I value your opinion and it does indeed make me feel encouraged about the project — a rare and wonderful sensation!
But patience! The story still isn’t all told!
All best wishes,
