Old fan, new to the site
« on: March 08, 2017, 09:11:05 pm »
Hi. I've been reading the books since the early 90s. Haven't read them in a while as life has gotten in the way but some stuff has come up recently reminding me about them. And I ended up here.

Welcome!

And no, you don't have to pick a single favorite book! :D

ETA:  If your schedule permits, come join us in the chat room on Sundays around 7 pm US Eastern; Ms. Kurtz herself will pop in for about an hour and hang out with the fans.  On the first Sunday of the month, it's at 5 pm Eastern to allow European fans to participate without having to stay awake until ridiculous hours.  (Sometimes this gets rescheduled, depending on Ms. Kurtz's schedule, but if that happens, someone from the mod team [usually me] will post the schedule change for early chat in the news section.)

Welcome. That sounds similar to me - I was reminded of the books some 25 years on, got re-hooked and found Rhemuth Castle. It's  a very friendly community  - I'm from across the pond btw.

Welcome to the site, LucyM.
Don't be afraid to comment on old posts, if you see something that interests you. It is fun when old posts are brought back to the surface and a fresh discussion starts again.
Or start your own post, on what interests you.
I hope you enjoy your stay with us.

Thank you all! I don't know how often I'll be on, but I've always loved alt-history and the type of settings found in the Deryni books. Sundays might be difficult every week, but I'd love to see if I could get on sometime.

You don't necessarily have to show up to chat every week; you're welcome whenever you can make it.  :D

I only make it once a month owing to the difference in time zones and am always made very welcome.

In addition any new fanfic stories are always received with warmth and encouragement if you felt like giving it a go. And you don't need any writing experience, just a love for the characters.

Welcome, LucyM!  I hope you manage to make your way to chat one of these Sundays.  It's a great way to get to know the Forum regulars.
