It is many years since I read Eon, newly issued in paperback as I recall. Eternity, of course, was close behind. Never have I wanted an author to revisit a story as much as I have done for this alternate universe you so spectacularly created. Have you ever considered another visit? - even if only to create a more stories based around The way, which as a concept I was so taken with.

Well, there is LEGACY and the novella THE WAY OF ALL GHOSTS, if you haven't read those already...

Dear Greg,

What about Olmys' journey after "Legacy"?, presumably when he was in the "Way" defence in his 2nd incarnation?..How did he suddenly have no nostrils? and why? was it because of some kind of transparrent nasal virus? or a natural Human adaption enabling the Hume to settle into an Alien climate.

That's THE WAY OF ALL GHOSTS. I'm not sure how he lost his nostrils... But not a disease, I'm guessing!

Thanks Greg,

That'll be next on my Amazon list. I was in WH Smiths in Gatwick Airport last week, looking for your books and there wasn't a single one!..loads of Ian Banks and some Brook..but no Bear! What's going on?..a literary agent failing you? PR..suppliers hoarding first editions?..anyway, Amazon fills the gap.

Cheers Greg,

No explanation here. There will not be a UK edition of MARIPOSA, apparently.
