  1. >I have read (listened to) and enjoy *Naked Once More* . . . a hoot indeed. Of course, I also recently listened to *The Copenhagen Connection*: vintage Elizabeth Peters is a guilty pleasure. It’s fun to watch feminism evolve through genre fiction. The series that ends with *Night Train to Memphis* is an entire survey course (and, by the end, really terrific stuff).

    >You will have to start a whole new blog if you’re going to speak of Elizabeth Peters. I mean, how many pseudonyms does she have? And they’re each as good as the lady behind them (Entering strained grammatical waters, so will stop.)

  3. >Loved ‘em!
