R.I.P. Barbara Mertz/Barbara Michaels/Elizabeth Peters

Barbara Mertz passed away on August 8th at the age of 85. I didn't see this news until last night. I've always been a huge fan of her Barbara Michaels gothic mysteries, reading them since I was a teenager. I hadn't gotten a chance to properly try out her Amelia Peabody mysteries yet under her name Elizabeth Peters, but these are the books she has been focusing on for years now. A wonderful author has passed. She had an unusual talent with words and mood. Rest in peace, Ms. Mertz, you will be be missed and are incomparable.
