Review of chapter "5: "Well, My Name is Calvin Fargo..."" from purrfus
Review:
I recognize Tom's Dietz's name but can't remember reading any of the books. Regardless the writing is such that this is understandable and fun to read even without that background. Nicely done.
Comments from author:
Thanks very much. Deitz's books have become much harder to find now that he's passed away; if you've got access to a good used bookstore (and with Amazon dot com, pretty much everyone does these days, LOL), you might be able to find a few. Well worth the search.

This story is amazing...
I love the fact that you crossed over Buffy with Tom Deitz's books...
You get a 10, but deserve a 20...

Ooh, nummy, soup. :) Thanks oodles, the bunny appreciates it. I will continue the story, never fear; life, the Universe, and everything else is getting in the way right now. Probably over Xmas break...and there will be continuations of 'Ooh, Shiny!', 'We Wish You A Merry...' and 'More Than Meets the Eye'...perhaps even another mini-'sode in Methos' 'Tales from the Barman, Mark II'.

Review of chapter "And Away-y-y We Go!" from zafaran
Review:
Oh, this is a set of books I've never seen before, and they look quite interesting. Thank you for the introduction. I live in the "neighborhood" sorta. Go across the NC state line North of Young Harris at Murphy and hang a right, and I'm over in the section covered by John Ringo's Fleet Strike series that has "Hymn before Battle", "Gust Front", "When the Devil Dances", and "Hell's Faire". I'm about 8 miles crow-flight off SheVa Nine's (aka Bun-Bun's) line of travel through the battles. (I'm not joking when I tell people that I could lead battle field tours for the books. {smirk}) I'm always on the look out for new authors to read who have a local slant to the work. I hope your muse and schedule will allow you to write and post more chapters sometime soon. Keep up the good work. Zafaran {mailto:} zafaran {at} fastmail {dot} fm

I used to work in a bookstore, so I've shelved all those books at least half a dozen times. :) Deitz's fictional Enotah County takes its name from the Native American name for Brasstown Bald, which is "Bloody Bald" in the books -- and a gateway to Faerie. ^_^

Review of chapter "Revelations" from Taisy
Review:
I have never read the books this cross comes from but it doesn't seem to matter to thye overall enjoyment of the story- the mark of an excellent crossover. I have no idea what's going on, but I'm not confused either and will be very interested to know what's going on and where this story is going.

Thanks for a great read so far.
Comments from author:
The books rule. The first one in the series is called 'Windmaster's Bane'; it was originally published by Nova Books in 1987, and a good used bookstore would probably have a copy. :) Author is Tom Deitz, who also has another two series, but I've only read one of them. The first book in that series is 'Soulsmith', also likely available at a good used bookstore. (That's where I got my replacement copies.) 'Windmaster's' was reissued in a "young adult" format around 2001 but those are scarce as hen's teeth. I highly recommend them.

Review of chapter "Revelations" from SFBKludge
Review:
Hum is this after the Lugh moved Faerie further away?

If before then the inevitable guard must have seen Willow. Someone of her Power stands out like a beacon. Only the greatest of the Sidhe could tangle with her. Since Willow is in her Homeworld then she would have clear access to her power and even Lugh would be limited.

This would sound all sorts of alarms and would gain the attention of the Sidhe. (As David can tell not always a good thing.)

Nice couple of chapters.
Comments from author:
It's before Lugh moved Tir-Nan-Og; for my purposes, he decided to wait and see what the ultimate conclusion of the Sunshaker War would be after the grudging peace had been declared with Finvarra and the Powersmiths. Cause you *know* there's always *somebody* ain't happy when peace breaks out! ^_^

Review of chapter "Critters an' Varmints" from SFBKludge
Review:
When I saw the title I went it couldn't be.

IT IS!!! Yay!

Windmasters Bane (and its sequels) are among my favorite books.

I remember the Were Possum bit as Davids doing though. Something Alex teased him about (not sure which book offhand.) But this works as well.

All I can say is bring it on!!!!
(Can you tell I'm excited?)

You got Davids voice right so I'm really looking forward to Calvin.
Comments from author:
Aww! Thanks! Yes, the whole "werepossum" thing was David...I believe that's mentioned in 'Windmaster's Bane'. Thanks for reviewing!!! ^_^

Review of chapter "Critters an' Varmints" from Alyssara
Review:
Wow! I don't think I've ever seen this crossover before :-) It's been far too long since I read that series and now I'm going to have to go back and re-read it...gosh darn it *heavy sarcasm*
I'm looking forward to reading more of this!!!

...so, if Fargo was magically changed into a possum without the "were" gene is it still contagious ;-)
Comments from author:
Hmmmm! We shall see, shan't we? ^_^ Remember, the disclaimer at the start of Chapter 1 says the kids have been brought into the 21st century, so it's def. post-S7 and after 'Ghostcountry's Wrath'. If my continuity's off, feel free to kibitz!!!
