anyone else interested in her works?
i've read:  'Still Forms on Foxfield'  'A Door Into Ocean'  'Daughters of Elysium'  'The Children Star'
'Brain Plague'  'Wall Around Eden' ... which i believe are all her books so far

i've liked them all, for various and differing reasons... very thought-provoking... unusual perspective

I have read A Door Into Ocean. I really enjoyed it, but have not followed it up with any of her other books. She painted a universe as epic as Herbert, and you understood the motivations of the characters, even if you yourself would not act in the same way. A very good book.
