Okay, I just love an excuse to use a fancy word like "antepenultimate." For those of you not up on your Latin roots, it means "before next-to-last."

At the time I wrote this, it was generally assumed that the Sword and Sorceress series would end with Volume 20 -- that's as far as they had material for when Marion Zimmer Bradley died. Some of her former assistants and associates have continued the series, but Volume 20 was the last edited by her.
