Fantasy revival

Heeeeey, they've finally reprinted L.J. Smith's Dark Visions series! I'm sure I can thank the success of the CW's cheese-tastic Vampire Diaries for this, and it raises a more important question: is anyone going to reprint her two children's books, Night of the Solstice and Heart of Valor? Because they are totally her best work, despite the fact that she apparently began the first one in high school.

And speaking of thank-yous, I'd also like to give a shout out to the person who decided to publish this sucker in a ten-dollar omnibus edition. Smith's stuff is very entertaining, but it is not great fantasy (except for the kids' books mentioned above!), so I am sincerely grateful to her publishers, who have given this teen-girl-friendly pulp fiction a totally appropriate price. Thanks, guys, for remembering that most allowances are not infinite.
