All you want for Christmas is…

Mom_thumbnail_11It’s Sunday and it’s Edith and it’s almost The Holiday.

I mean Christmas, Channukah, Kwanza and any of your favorite “It’s cold and everything outside is dead so let’s have a celebration of faith to bring back the warmth and the light” holidays.

So what do you want as a gift for yourself? Oh sure: electronic devices, new cars, furniture, precious jewels and mundane stuff like that.

I mean if you could have it, what magical gift would you want? Again, let me clarify. I don’t mean the ability to leap tall buildings in a single bound, swing over the City on a spider web strand, become invisible, irresistible to all of the opposite sex, or have the ability read people’s minds, or any potentially troublesome gifts like that.

What I mean is, since we’re all readers here: if you could have any book in the world that hasn’t been written yet, which one would it be?

Some books are delicious and never forgotten, but it would be greedy to wish for a sequel since they are complete in themselves. Like JANE EYRE, MOBY DICK, A CHRISTMAS CAROL and others. But there are books that cry out for sequels, or continuations. I thought of that the other day when I was in a book store and discovered two new sequels to some of my favorrte books had come out, written by authors I’d thought had stopped writing! I fell on them, like a wolf on the fold.

(Note: the finds were a new dog mystery by Susan Conant, and a new one in the “Flinx” sci-fi/fantasy series by Alan Dean Foster.)

So since were being magical here, and we have no limits: let’s think of books that can’t, won’t or haven’t been written.

How about a real sequel to GONE WITH THE WIND? The continuing story of HUCKLEBERRY FINN in his adolescence? A book about VENETIA’s wedding telling us how that marriage with the delicious Damerel, worked out?

When I think of the other books I’d want, I’d love to find a copy of the sequel to that great romance: THE WINDFLOWER, under my Channukah bush. And a copy of another adventure in Miles Vorkosigan’s universe, this one about his cousin Ivan. Of course I want a shiny new mystery featuring Brother Cadfael, telling us more about his world and his friends. I’d want a book about what happened to the conflicted Sir Blaine in Teresa Medeiros’ SHADOWS AND LACE too. That’s just off the top of my head. Of course, absolutely, I’d want one from each of our resident wenches about some of my favorite sub-hero’s, anti-hero’s, outright villains, passing ladies and gentlemen, rogues and tarts. There just isn’t room here to do justice to them all.

I want to read more about so many of them!

I know you would too. What unwritten books would you be joyful for?

  1. I’d like another Hercule Poirot novel. I’d also like another Georgette Heyer, particularly one in which Jack (from Cotillion) featured as the hero and met his match.

  5. I would like the final installment of the gothic trilogy Rebecca Brandewyne began with Upon a Moon-Dark Moor, please. Also Delight’s story from Bertrice Small’s Blaze Wyndham. Oh, and if it’s not too much trouble, the third book in Aola Vandergriff’s Civil War trilogy. Any unpublished manuscripts left by Valerie Sherwood, Anita Mills, Maggie Osborne and Katherine Sutcliffe before they retired. One more historical (okay at least one) from Flora Speer or Christina Skye.
    If a copy of Cat’s story from The Windflower showed up in my stocking, I would not cry. (Which is familyspeak for pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaase.)

  9. The obvious choice would be the Bible, with perfect translations and simple explanations of all the very odd things it contains. Reading Revelations gives me a headache. This book needs some clarification before the world truly ends!
    I am intrigued by your question. We’re probably just as well off not knowing the exact details of HEAs, because inevitably bills, babies and middle-aged spread would dim the luster of love. But if we could resurrect Georgette Heyer, I’d read anything she wrote. Ditto Edith Wharton.

  17. An intriguing challenge, Edith! While I’m pondering, let me give you a Channukah bush gift: I think that Lois McMaster Bujold has another Vorkosigan book contracted. I don’t think it’s written yet so it will a while, but something to look forward to!
    And we all got a gift: a new Dick Francis book this fall. He’d retired after his wife and writer partner died several years ago, but his kids apparently talked him into another book, a son helped–and we’re the beneficiaries. My copy is waiting for after I get through a bunch of Christmas stuff.

  21. Edith, what a marvelous question!
    If I could have it….
    I would want to know more about the growing relationship between Giles and Desdemona (secondary characters in MJ’s ANGEL ROGUE). Bet it would steam the windows. I think this one could actually be written because we never saw them get married. Hint. Hint.
    And Simon and Meg (STOLEN MAGIC). Oh, the funny things you could do with a husband that turned into a glossy white unicorn every time he got mad.
    And see Dare and Mara’s (Jo’s TRAR) kids. Major payback time for the rogue.
    And Hermione Granger from HP. Would love to see her life before she came to Hogwarts. (I actually wrote a premise for how she learned about her powers, discovered the school and so quickly fell in with the teacher who can turn into a cat (her name escapes me)) That’s how much not knowing bothered me.

  25. Great question, Edith.
    Though as a writer, I respect another writer’s need to move on, I’d like, pretty please, a second Dunnett series very like the Lymond books rather than written, it appears, to directly oppose them.
    Yes, more Heyers from her Golden Age, not quite like her last books.I’d like to see the books Heyer would write now. I think she’d get into more sexuality with gusto because there are hints in her earlier work.
    More Elizabeth Peters that aren’t the Peabodies. (Sorry, all you Peabody fans!)
    More Miles Vorkosigan. Yes!
    I’m sure I’ll think of more.

  29. So true on Jane Austen!
    It would have been wonderful to see what she did with her life. She was beginning to make money from her writing and she loved it! She could have become rich.
    She would have enjoyed greater ease of travel and the railways.
    Can’t you imagine her at the Great Exhibition at the Crystal Palace?

  33. Have any of you read Laurie R. King’s marvelous mystery series about Mary Russell and Sherlock Holmes? (The first book in the series is “The Beekeeper’s Apprentice.”) I would love for her to write a novel about Holmes and Russell’s trip to Paris where they marry and have their honeymoon (and perhaps solve a dangerous mystery, of course!) The second book, “A Monstrous Regiment of Women,” jumps from proposal to returned-from-the-honeymoon in a way that is most infuriating for a romance reader! What could be the untold story? (Sigh)

    Loved THE BEEKEEPER’S APPRENTICE.
    Was disappointed with the new Dick Francis. In fact, I’m stalled a third of the way in. I’m a huge Francis fan and Sid Halley is my favorite Francis character…but I’ll wait until after the Holidays and all have read it.
    Under my tree I would like to find the life story of one Blanche Hardcastle, the White Dove of Drury lane. 🙂

  41. I also want more Jane Austen, of course. BTW, I like “an assembly such as this, and duty and desire” which are part of the growing number of novels which surround Pride and Prejudice. This from Darcy’s point of view, but goes beyong the plot of Pride and Prejudice.
    I also loved the Beekeepers Apprentice. The beekeepers apprentice does exactly what this thread might have wished before it was written– Sherlock Holmes finally gets a romantic interest (as brilliant as he is). BTW “a letter of Mary” (in that series) addresses da vinci code like issues. How about more about Dr. Watson?
    I wish Elizabeth Peters would create a new cast of characters that were as funny and interesting as Amelia Peabody. I loved that character, and her family, but there are so many books that I got sick of them after a while. (I never thought I would)
    I would like to read about Harriet Vane (Dorothy Sayers–Lord Peter wimsey) in her college years.
    I also just wish Carolyn Heilbrun, (Amanda Cross) was still alive to comment on everything that is going on now. I think she would have enjoyed this blog.

  57. Oh, Oh!! I want the Cat sequel, too!! (That’s one of the few books I’d pay megabucks for.)
    and more Vicky and John books from Elizabeth Peters
    and more Mary Stewarts and MM Kayes
    and the Blanche/Hal book
    and did I mention the Cat sequel?
    Oh, well. At least I’m finally getting Games of Command from Linnea Sinclair. I’ve been going to night school and haven’t had a lot of time, so I’m going through serious book withdrawal. I’m going to read like crazy over the holidays!

  61. See, Edith, you always SAY that – and yet there’s that nagging secondary character problem……
    But I’ll give you the excellence, of course. glad people aren’t forgetting it – that’s a book that’s overdue for a reprint.
