With each one there has been the new story to enjoy, the unknown vocabulary to underline and look up and the wonderful women role models to cheer home. Thank you also, for rounding off poor old Earth’s troubles so cleverly with the Fish Tales crew.
I cannot tell you my favourite story because that changes regularly. They have probably all had their turn. These days, while coping with age and discomfort, one of your books, all well loved friends, makes the best kind of sleeping draught. Good vibes to you and yours. Annabel

I just wanted you to know, all your books sit on my shelves and whisper to me. When one begins to be louder than the others, I take it down and read again. Sometimes it is Jewell, sometimes Genevieve, but most often, I find Morgot in my hand. Or second maybe, Chiddy and Vess. I love the way you handle your Bad Guys without overt violence. So happy with the end??? of the Waters Rising series.

In you biography (the “true” one of course) you stated that you put yourself in the mind of a teenage boy and wrote the first volume in a week. I am happy and proud to state that this 64 year old teenage boy enjoyed it immensely. My father did not let me read this trash when I was a real teenager. I have corrupted my own son by making the entire range of SF and Fantasy books available to him and now he wants to be a writer. He has not, yet, read any of yours. He tried when he was far too young to read Grass and it was more than he could swallow. As a devoted D&D master The True Game will allow me to point him your way again and once begun you are truly hard to stop. Thank you for the years of quiet enjoyment you have given and I look forward to whatever you still have to give.

I am a few days too late, but better late congratulations than none at all. My heartfelt thanks for letting me share your worlds!

A box of your books traveled around the world with me as my equivalent to comfort food. They’ve returned with me to Colorado so that I can continue to fall into those familiar/unfamiliar worlds whenever I need a break from the other world. Bless you, keep writing!

When I moved away to go to school my father turned my bedroom into a library because all the other rooms were full. I remember at least one entire shelf filled with Sheri S. Tepper and my father placing a copy of The Gate to Women’s Country in my hands. I can’t remember if I had already read Grass and Beauty at that point. I do remember having had a conversation with my father about why all the good characters were boys or men and why so many of the female characters in books were so boring and stupid. And I think that’s why he gave me the book.
I know that starting high school having read The Gate To Women’s Country helped me to shape my ideals and set my own boundaries for dealing with the world. It inspired me to fight back against the inherent patriarchy in my Catholic school and to argue back when teachers and administrators tried to make decisions for my own good.
Your works have a pride of place on my shelves, and a category of their own on my Kindle. And to this day, I have retained the lessons from TGTWC on lifelong learning and the value of having an art, a science and a craft.
Sheri, you have inspired me to think and argue and write and question everything. I hope that your birthday this year was everything that a birthday should be.

Ms Tepper, I have enjoyed your many themes and stories, written under all your different nom-de-plumes. Thank you, for creating uncomfortable discussions, for provoking thought, for writing characters who make us examine what it is that we are doing with our world.
