Yes, I reviewed one of my own novels, the companion to my Oct. 2003 release, Those of My Blood -- but reading it was a really peculiar experience, as if someone else had written it.
The Curse of Chalion by Lois McMaster Bujold, Harper Torch Fantasy, 2002

Those of My Blood
One of the very best vampire novels I've read in a long time.
of Souls : A Novel
by Lois McMaster Bujold (Author)
Seven Seasons of Buffy: Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers Discuss Their Favorite Television Show edited by Glenn Yeffeth, BenBella Books, Oct. 2003
Includes articles by Jean Lorrah and also by Jacqueline Lichtenberg.
Jean writes about how Love Saves The World
Jacqueline writes "The Power of Becoming" -- contending that Buffy The Vampire Slayer is a tv show which is in fact "Great Literature" as well as Intimate Adventure.
of My Blood by Jacqueline
Lichtenberg, trade pb, BenBella Books Oct. 2003
The companion volume,
Dreamspy, will be released in the first Trade Paperback edition in the
spring of 2004.
This is a very different sort of vampire
novel. The hero is a woman who is a con artist, pretending to be a
vampire killer and bilking a fortune from poor villages. She buys a
tavern in a nice coastal town, and settles down to live well -- only to
discover the town harbors a family of vampires who believe her reputation
is real not faked. You gotta read it to believe it!
"The book's demons, by the way, are morally neutral, merely hyper-entropic. They cannot help being what they are, any more than humans can help consuming food to live. All good and evil in the book pertains to and flows from the beings who have the free will effective in time -- the people. Difficult, dangerous, destructive, the Bastard's brothers may be, but they only are what they eat. A subtle point, perhaps, but a key one.
"Happily, there will be a third book in the Chalion series -- it's in (slow) progress now. It moves to a different region -- this world's equivalent of medieval Germany -- and has a new cast and concerns, but does
address some of the same issues of spirit, will, power, and the heavy hand of the past. Working title is _The Hallowed Hunt_.
best regards, Lois Bujold."

Street Dreams (Ay Adult - Kellerman)
by Faye Kellerman
"Street Dreams" by Faye Kellerman
You can find this book in your library rather than buying it during the holiday sales season.
Not ostensibly sf/f, this series of mysteries gives you the same kind of entre into a different culture that you find in sf/f.
Check out my May 2003 review of the previous novel in this series - Stone Kiss.
Or look here for Faye Kellerman titles available.
