She will be greatly missed. I really enjoyed her Amelia Peabody mysteries.

That was what I read when I first got into Egypt back in elementary school. I shall miss her and the characters.

Somehow I missed this. Very sad. I was wondering why she hadn't published anything lately. I was a big fan of both her fiction and non-fiction writings.

Yeah. Her (Dr. Barbara Mertz's) Red Land, Black Land ought to be required reading. I have always thought that meeting the Ancient Egyptians as "normal people" is the best introduction to counter the mysticism and fantastical claims that swirl around the culture.

There is an article about her in the current issue of KMT magazine.
