Heh, heh. I'm lucky enough to have a signed copy of _Iguana Love_, purchased at LCC 2001 in Anchorage after listening to a panel on sex featuring Ms. Hendricks, Lauren Henderson, Anne Perry and ?Sinclair Browning? I _think_ it was moderated by Joyce Christmas. Nah, I think my mind's flaking out. Vicki? Do you remember who else was on that panel?

What I remember for certain is that it was perhaps the most well-attended panel of the convention, and it was certainly the noisiest. Occupants of conference rooms on either side of us complained about their panels being drowned out by the laughter.

Anyway, _Iguana Love_ remains the only Hendricks I've read, but I own them all. They're in the TBR pile, nearing the top.
