Hello! Been a while since I've been on your site! Still sharing your books with my family... when they plunder my library, they usually go to your shelf first.
I just watched the latest episode of 'The 4400' Sunday night, and some of the elements - the facial 'disfiguration', etc. - reminded me oh-so-slightly of Darwin's Radio. Have you seen it? Any comments?

Haven't seen it yet. Everything has a date stamp on it in Hollywood--meaning elements of popular novels are going to end up in other works eventually. Wonder how many things I've been inspired to borrow or emulate, in my time? The major problems begin with plot elements and character situations, not just fragments of ideas.
