it through our online bookstore.
Will Melanie ever write any more Dragon Prince/Star books?
From a conversation held with Melanie in early 1995, on her Ruins of
Ambrai signing tour, Melanie stated that she would be interested in
writing a prequel to the Dragon Prince books, about Lady Merisel
and the original struggle of the faradhi versus the diarmadhi, but wasn't
thinking about what she would be doing in the future. "You never know
what might happen, though," she said. But considering that she is now
signed to a major publisher, AVON, the only circumstances that she would
be able to write more of her books, that she wrote under DAW, would be if
her popularity increased phenomenally and DAW released their rights to the
She was asked about this again, at a recent signing at Third Planet books
in Torrance, CA, by a very dedicated fan of the sunrunner books. "If I
did do it, it would probably happen in the next millennium." The fan also
asked about Meig, commenting on his 'specialness.' "You bet Meig's
special. He's got a few things buggin' him. But we won't address that
issue for a while.. I've got an island to blow up [editor's note: refering
There's been rumor of Melanie doing a 'compilation' novel, is that
Yes, actually. She has written a book, collaborating with female
fantasy writers Jennifer Roberson
and Kate Elliott. The book they wrote is
called The Golden Key about
magician painters. It's published by DAW, with cover art done by Michael Whelan.
They have been dubbed as the "Dream Team of Fantasy."
I've looked everywhere for The Golden Key, but I can't find
Make sure to check under all of the last names in the hardback fiction
sections of bookstores. It's been noticed that Brentano's and B. Dalton
are not carrying the books yet, though Barnes & Noble, and Bookstar, are
stocked. Look around, it's there.

Is there a Melanie Rawn newsgroup?
Is there a Dragon Prince MUSH/MUDD?
Due to problems of copyright and violations thereof, there will never
be a Dragon Prince MUSH/MUDD. Melanie has stated very clearly that though
she supports creativity in everyway, she believes that creativity should

her fans, to take that from her.
For those of you who don't know what a MUSH or a MUDD is, it's an online
roleplaying game, that is programmed into a certain scenario. There used
to be a Melanie Rawn MUSH, but it has since closed down for the above
