Potterverse, Names (spoilers from end of Deathly Hallows)
#21
Warning: I don't like some of the newer McCaffrey books.
I would take them out of the library before purchasing them.
The first 6 books are pretty good, but after a dozen or so readings, you start to find the errors. (Blue dragons turning Brown.)

The co-authored stuff is pretty erratic, excepting the stuff written with/by Todd (Johnson) McCaffrey.

****
As for J.K.R., following a similar path to a book writing glut. I don't think so. Anne McCaffrey had to keep writing books that the public wanted, even if she didn't want to write in that universe, to pay the bills.

Right now J.K.R. has the freedom to never write again. No money requirements. So, she can write in the Potter universe, or Not, as she pleases.

PS: Rob Roy - Good luck on that slow reading now & marithon reading during labor. Rumor has it, that not even a good book will take ones mind off....

Did she? I wasn't aware of that. I'm not a McCaffrey fan, though I've read some of her efforts.

Thanks. I have no idea how enrapt my wife will be, but I'm guessing when the real pushing starts it won't matter. The book is for the longer period as the contractions build. I'll report out how it went though!
All your base are belong to us.

It could be that the purpose of my life is only to serve as a warning to others.
