I just finished a new book today. It was written by a Tart and is a fan fiction of what happens to Erik after Christine. This version is unlike any other I've read - it is a story of not just surviving but thriving and I was very satisfied with the outcome as have been all the others I know who have read it. It is a very satisfying story which took a direction I had never considered and paired it with some ideas which had crossed my mind.
My only criticism was that it is not well edited. This complaint isn't about the story because both the plot and pacing are very good, but there are several spelling and grammatical errors that the editor/publisher should have caught. This is based on Gerry's Phantom, not the Leroux version, and it is easy to picture him in it. I highly recommend it - even some people who are very opposed to POTO fan fictions have liked this book.
Title: Into the Light

Wow, nice selection of books. Thanks for the suggestions, Fiona.
I highly recommend the following books, all of which I have read recently:
-- Oxford New Classics translation of Emile Zola's "Therese Raquin"
-- Pandora Drive, by Tim Waggoner (but only if you like books along the lines of Ray Bradbury's "Something Wicked This Way Comes")
-- Dance of Death, by Linda Fairstein (a sort of "Phantom of the Ballet" mystery)
-- "Angel of Music," by Carrie Hernandez (three novellas in the Leroux Phantom canon)
I've never read Therese Raquin. Hmmmmm!
I love Ray Bradbury's "Something Wicked This Way Comes." One of my all time favorite books. I will check on Pandora Drive by Tim Waggoner.
I've yet to find a Phantom theme that I don't like.
I hope some of these books are available at my library because I can't afford to buy all of them.

I loved Men in Kilts!! There are so many phrases in there that her heroine uses to describe her feelings when she meets her Scotsman, and as their feelings develop, that sound like they were right out of the words GALS use to describe Gerry. The book is quite funny and I really enjoyed it. I was reading it last year when I met Dr. Em and Football Princess in Las Vegas and I kept reading sections out loud to them because they were just so GALS-like!
It's one of the books I have under the bed in the "to read" pile. Maybe I'll bring it to Vegas.
(Like I'm going to get any reading in. )

Seriously, read it people. It's very funny. My only gripe would be that the ending was pretty boring.
