Please make sure to read the EXPLANATORY NOTES before reading these reviews.
**LAO MA'S KISS by Elaine Sutherland
This is a BEAUTIFUL piece of writing that in many places reads almost like a poem. Cleverly introduced by Professor Elaine Sutherland as a series of ancient Chinese letters and Greek scrolls, the story in fact unfolds through the presentation of these. The Chinese letters are the memoirs of Lao Ma, revealed as the true author of the book of Taoism. The scrolls, written by the bard Gabrielle, are the reminiscences of Xena of Amphipolis who would eventually become the legendary Warrior Princess. Set in juxtaposition, the letters and scrolls unveil a tale of admirable ambitions, of sacrifice, of raw passion pitted against calculated reason - of a love that could never have survived but was destined to foreshadow one that someday would. THIS is the deeper tale we only saw hints at in THE DEBT and BETRAYAL. Featuring VERY powerful characterizations of both Lao Ma and the Xena she knew, this is NOT TO BE MISSED! A MUST READ! - 21 pgs, 1/98
