For my part, I suspect that there is no one on the list that has not read
all the Vlad books.  I base this on the supposition that if someone is
interested enough in the books to have subscribed to this very active list,
they are a real fan.  Perhaps not a big enough fan to buy the hardcovers,
but they're all out in paperback now.
