Aloha, Mr. Bear!

I am a dedicated fan and have read most, if not all, books by "the Three B's," including your wonderful sequel to the Azimov Foundation Trilogy.

However, in the midst of enjoying "Quantico," I was jolted back to reality on the reference to the 2003 "Challenger" disaster. I'm thinking Challenger happened much earlier than 2003, and perhaps that was the Columbia disaster your character was referring to.

Thanks for listening to my comment.

Absolutely, Nancy. How did this one slip by so many readers? And copy-editors! We're going to correct it in the U.S. paperback edition.
