I haven't written you in a while but I saw the info about Halo on your site and found it ironic; DNDOG (Dungeons & Dragons Online) contacted me a couple months ago to do almost the exact opposite thing -- they wanted to see if I'd think of writing one of my worlds (a fantasy one called Kritter) into a format they could use for a gaming campaign module!
*G*And anyway I've been thinking of you as I slog through working on my own "bac book", as I call it affectionaly. Hah, I've been talking about it on my Livejournal with another fan of yours, who speaks highly of you! (Well obviously I was talking about it in relation to you because you're the one sf author I know who does that kind of spec writing... so you're my biggest inspiration there). Amusingly enough, it isn't to be my first published book; I actually have an ebook coming out in a few months or so! (which is sf itself, and surprised me because it was a shot in the dark... but that's another story. Anyway, that one's more nanotech than biotech:))
Ok, the Crazed Fan will go away now! But I just thought it was an ironic coincidence about the gaming thing.
