Elizabeth Peters

Sad news today:  Barbara Mertz has died.  

Under the name of Elizabeth Peters she wrote one of my favorite historical mystery series.  I adore her Amelia Peabody novels.  The Vicky Bliss series is also very good.  She was a real titan in the field.  I always feel sad when a writer I have read and enjoyed for years departs this earth.  I'll miss her.

  1. One of the few I would call an original and like you say a true giant in the genre. I too was sad to hear she is now gone. I have a huge Peters/Michaels collection -- nearly every book she wrote from Ammie, Come Home all the way up to the most recent Amelia Peabody -- all first edition hardcovers. She still remains a favorite.
