you have to understand me right - I love the stories as they are. It's just that the last three stories are expressly linked to Sookies stories. Dahlia is ageless. but even for an ageless character it can be an itsy bit funny to live under the rule of the new sheriff for some time and see him becoming one a couple of years later. but it isn't a problem - I wouldn't notice this at all if I wasn't trying that timeline. sorry, if i've bothered you. and thank you for the lovely stories. write more, please. severenika

My library will have a copy of Down These Strange Streets at my branch soon. Status of request was "In Transit," so I should be reading it by the end of the week. Happy Halloween, everyone.

Enjoy, troubledour.

Severenika, I write the Dahlia stories so widely spread apart that I never think about timelines. Frankly, that's never been my concern in anything I write, to which my poor continuity editor can attest.

If Diantha speaks Spanish, she'll fit right in among Cubans and Dominicans living in Miami. I can say this; my folks were Cuban. ;-)

Yes, I enjoyed seeing her again, too.

I'm on a restricted budget so I can't buy all the anthologies that feature Dahlia stories - though the ones that include Patricia Briggs stories are rather tempting.

Is there a Dahlia short stories collection in the works?

104 duckpond100   2011-11-07 09:55

Taizu, I'm hoping that sooner or later there will be enough Dahlia stories to justify a collection. I love writing her.

I don't see a thread for this, but I thought I'd ask...For anyone who has read the rest of the Strange Streets stories:

Does anyone else here like Carrie Vaughn's "It's Still the Same Old Story"? Anyone else think that Ricardo is at least as romantic a vampire character as Bill? Just asking.

That would be a good question for the Other Writers threads. I think Carrie Vaughn has a thread there.

troubledour, I haven't read any other Carrie Vaughn but I thought it was a great story. Here's a link to our Carrie Vaughn thread: &Catid=474477a40&skip=30#m4dec472e11
