terryl does outstanding work,

terryl does outstanding work, and judging from the voicework on her gnomon dvds, is a really nice and fun person, too. (unfortunately, the knowledge part on her dvds is less than i hoped for) there is a basic believability to her creatures that is far beyond the norm for fantasy creature artists.

this book is going to be interesting :)
