For those that don't know or may have forgotten, Nora and Laura will do a Facebook Live chat in preparation for Secrets. I think it's gonna run at 5 or 6 Central my time. I imagine the questions will be pre-selected in advance and the window may be closed on that front. But I plan to catch it because the questions might be interesting.

If y'all want to catch it, it will be broadcasted in JD Robb's Facebook page, cya there.

Where is the chicken stick?  Is it on the door, like a current day handle?  Is it sticking up from the floor on the passenger side?  Where do you think it is?

I see Margot Robbie as playing  Mavis Freestone.

I'm looking at the characters page, and I'm noticing that there seem to be a number of people missing.  Are there some guidelines regarding what characters are "in" and which ones are "out" for this page?

Doing a search, I find that most of the ones I've missed so far are listed here, but there are no corresponding character pages.  And poor Diana the flight attendant (Naked In Death, page 43) is omitted altogether.

What's more, that characters wiki page has an entry for Eve, Roarke, Peabody, even Francois, but not Nadine?

And while I'm asking, why are "Eve's History," "Eve's Illegal Activities," and "Eve's Laws" listed as characters?

I could just start mucking about, but I thought I'd check first to see if there was a plan.

Last week, Sarah from smartbitchestrashybooks.com interviewed Kecia Ali about her book Human in Death: Morality and Mortality in J. D. Robb's Novels . The book is an academic analysis of the series.

The podcast is on itunes.  More info and a transcript here

The podcast is really interesting and brings up some things that need to be brought up.  I really want to read the book but I'll save up a bit.  I hate how expensive academic works are.  Anyone here read the book?

Hey, everyone!

Here's a quick tutorial on adding a new page, since the process is slightly different than editing a page:

First, click on the icon for adding a new page at the top of the wiki page:

   

Now, name your page. In this case, we're adding the "List of Repetitive Names"

   

Now add your text. You can add as much or as little as you would like, or just put some text to use as a placeholder, if you don't have any text at the moment.

   

That's it! Save the page, and you are done!

So we're about two months away from Secrets and five months away from this new, and to Nora standards, a radically different trilogy coming up. Some of you were comparing this to it potentially being similar to Hunger Games, but keep in mind that the Hunger Games was just a clone of Battle Royale by Takami Koushun. Personally I think this has the potential to be compared to Fist of the North Star, Wicked City and Vampire Hunter D along with being compared to Harry Potter, Deathlands, and The Survivalist. But I am curious, what books or movies brought you to mind when you read this plot summary?

A stunning new novel from the #1 New York Times bestselling author—an epic of hope and horror, chaos and magic, and a journey that will unite a desperate group of people to fight the battle of their lives…

It began on New Year’s Eve.
The sickness came on suddenly, and spread quickly. The fear spread even faster. Within weeks, everything people counted on began to fail them. The electrical grid sputtered; law and government collapsed—and more than half of the world’s population was decimated.
Where there had been order, there was now chaos. And as the power of science and technology receded, magic rose up in its place. Some of it is good, like the witchcraft worked by Lana Bingham, practicing in the loft apartment she shares with her lover, Max. Some of it is unimaginably evil, and it can lurk anywhere, around a corner, in fetid tunnels beneath the river—or in the ones you know and love the most.
As word spreads that neither the immune nor the gifted are safe from the authorities who patrol the ravaged streets, and with nothing left to count on but each other, Lana and Max make their way out of a wrecked New York City. At the same time, other travelers are heading west too, into a new frontier. Chuck, a tech genius trying to hack his way through a world gone offline. Arlys, a journalist who has lost her audience but uses pen and paper to record the truth. Fred, her young colleague, possessed of burgeoning abilities and an optimism that seems out of place in this bleak landscape. And Rachel and Jonah, a resourceful doctor and a paramedic who fend off despair with their determination to keep a young mother and three infants in their care alive.
In a world of survivors where every stranger encountered could be either a savage or a savior, none of them knows exactly where they are heading, or why. But a purpose awaits them that will shape their lives and the lives of all those who remain.
The end has come. The beginning comes next.

Hey, everyone! 

I just wanted to update you on the progress of the Wiki migration, and it is going good!!

So far we are over a quarter of the way there, but there is still a long way to go! We need your help!

If you think can help us out, please visit the Wiki Migration Thread for a short tutorial on how to migrate our pages over.

If you have any questions, please let me know, and I will help you out.

Thanks Everyone!

The following is my opinion and does not necessarily reflect the opinions of the owner or any moderator or other member of Forum in Death.

When AJ first made the reluctant decision to end InDeath.Net, many people expressed shock and sadness at the loss.  When the new forum came back, everyone expressed delight.

So what are you feeling now?  No one knows.  There's too much silence.  

This forum can only survive with your participation.  If you are a lurker, if you visit every so often but don't participate, please consider stepping up.  Post a comment on a discussion.  Ask a question, express an opinion,  tell us what  you're reading.  Something.

This is not the "AJ and the Moderators" show.  We need all of you, we need a vibrant, involved community to survive.

Thank you.

I enjoyed the recipe sharing in the old forum, so I thought I'd try starting it up again.

I love fried pickles, but as Mary Haymaker of Chattavore says, sometimes frying is a mess.  She came up with this recipe for oven fried pickles which I must try soon.

Oven Fried Pickles
 
olive oil spray or cooking spray
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
2 eggs
1/2 -3/4 cup panko crumbs
1 teaspoon salt, divided
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper, divided
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper, divided
1 cup dill pickle chips, well-drained
dipping sauce, for serving
 
Preheat the oven to 450. Spray a sheet pan (I use a quarter sheet pan) with cooking spray or olive oil spray (I use olive oil in my Misto).
Place the flour, eggs, and panko crumbs in separate bowls. Divide the salt among the bowls then divide the cayenne pepper and the black pepper among the flour and the panko crumbs. Stir each bowl to combine.
 
Dredge the pickle chips in the flour, then the eggs, then the panko. Place the breaded pickles on the prepared sheet pan and spray with olive oil spray or cooking spray.
 
Bake the pickles for 8 minutes, then flip each pickle and bake for another 7-8 minutes, until crisp and brown.
 
Serve while hot with desired dipping sauce.
