Topic: Dead Lines - Infinity Concerto

Dear Mr Bear,
Firstly I can't say anything else until I've said this: I'm yet to find a story that has moved and inspired me as much as Infinity Concerto. After reading dog knows how many books it remains my all time favourite.
My reason for writing now, however, is not Infinity, but Dead Lines. As an avid reader of all things creepy and supernatural for more than 40 years, I wish to say that no other story of this genre has come as close to convincing me that ghosts may in fact exist as this novel. You've effectively blended science with myth and shown a plausible explanation for all things otherworldly. Bravo Mr Bear!

Many thanks, Jenny! I've always loved a good ghost story, and it pleases me no end that you enjoyed my effort.

"Songs of Earth and Power" were one of my most profound emotion-laden experiences with fiction. But surprisingly, in regard of "all things creepy and supernatural" this title holds a short story of Polish SF writer S. Lem titled "Terminus". I would be very grateful for receiving your opinion about it.
Pardon my clumsy English. It's not my native language.

Thanks, Emil! I'll look up "Terminus" and read it.
