October 15, 2012. More than 10 years ago, the award-winning, acclaimed author Elizabeth A. Lynn wrote a truly great book called Dragon’s Winter, the first of a projected trilogy. In 2004, the second book came out, called Dragon’s Treasure, which served mostly as an intriguing set-up for what promises to be a spectacular conclusion to one of the most beautifully written, literate and literary fantasy trilogies of our time.
Then 8 years kind of … crawled by.
Yes, I have been waiting an awfully long time for book 3. A year ago, I wrote her a letter, but received no response. I’ve googled her and yahoo’ed her, but I can find nothing less than 8 years old. You can actually find more recent and abundant information on the web about your average midtown receptionist.
Today, I found a reference to a 2010 book to which she’d contributed a short story. Unfortunately, on further investigation, I learned it was a reprint of a 2001 publication.
The trail has definitely gone cold.
I’m starting to worry.
So this post is the fanboy version (er … fan-aging-gentleman version) of one of those posters you see on bus stations looking for old guys who have wandered off.
Does anyone know where Elizabeth A. Lynn has wandered off?
Any and all information would be greatly appreciated.
UPDATE: I am still getting periodic queries about this post and hits on the site every day. People have not forgotten the great Elizabeth A. Lynn! As you can see in the comments below, she responded three years ago (in 2015), with the following: “Lizzy is indeed fine — but I do not think the rest of Karadur’s story will ever be told. I regret it. I am delighted that you enjoyed Dragon’s Winter and Dragon’s Treasure.” For the record, she is a martial arts instructor in San Francisco. You can see plenty of videos of her work on YouTube. (Here, for example.) If she regrets not finishing her trilogy, then why doesn’t she finish it? She doesn’t say. I hope someday she will change her mind, but for now, this is the answer.
