You might want to know that the NESFA press has recently issued a compendium of Bellairs entitled "Magic Mirrors," which includes the fragmentary (about 1/3) text of "Dragon Cross," the previously unpublished sequel to "The Face in the Frost," as well as some other "adult" Bellairs. I agree that "Face" is a wonderful book- it is a great tragedy that Bellairs was diverted by the success of his YA stuff. It is an even greater tragedy that Blaylock is not doing another cheeser-you would think that given the commercial potential of YA fantasy today, some publisher would repackage these books and motivate Blaylock to continue the series. Sigh!

Correction to previous post:  sorry, the "Face in the Frost" sequel is "Dolphin Cross," not "Dragon Cross."

I think Blaylock could easily write a new book about that world - a so- called 'cheeser' book - and I would love to see him try and apparently so would a lot of people.  It would be much different from the first three, but who cares.   I think he'd have fun with it and it would shake him up as a writer and he might come up with something he doesn't expect.

Lin Carter (a man, actually, whose full first name was Linwood) was perhaps one of the most important figures in fantasy literature. He selected and introduced the Ballantine Adult Fantasy series back in the late 60's/ early 70's. The series brought back into print many fantasy novels that had been out of print for decades and is highly collectible. I can't recommend it enough. Ballantine used the popularity of Tolkien at the time to bring all of these works back into print. The only drawback is the books were poorly produced and the covers tend to fall off. But they had awesome cover art. Carter also wrote novels himself.

Thanks for the Bellairs tip.  Hadn't heard of him before, and lo and behold, the book you mention is available for purchase on Kindle, even away over here in South Korea where the bookstores are unlikely to carry my preferred paper edition; Blaylock not such a big seller over here.  As has been mentioned on this subject before: no new Cheeser books?  I'll just read the originals again...happily.  Now to track them down!

I stand a bit corrected regarding the dearth of Blaylock's works in Korea.  I went to a used bookstore in Seoul last weekend and they had a copy of The Last Coin.  Happy surprise.  Someone here reads him.
