Hi Greg, it's Darrell Burgan, the artist behind the Palancar music project, who released the album "Momerath", the tribute 'soundtrack' to your book "Anvil of Stars". Hope all is well with you.
I'm writing to let you know I have taken "Momerath" out of commercial print and have re-released it as a Creative Commons release on my Earth Mantra virtual label. This means that people now are able to download it and listen to it and share it with folks as desired, at no cost and completely legally. So hopefully more people will be able to enjoy the album now.
Your links page currently points people to my web site at www.palancar.net, but I thought you might want to instead point people directly to the release's page on Earth Mantra, from where they can download it directly:
Anyway just letting you know it is now more easily available to folks.
By the way, I read your recent book "City at the End of Time". Wow ... it was a serious mind bender for me. Such a unique concept, unlike anything else I've read. Almost fantasy but clearly grounded in hard sci-fi, quite an amazing fusion. It's been awhile since I read a book that had such a scope as this one. Truly excellent. I am planning to re-read it again in the next month or so, as there is so much detail that I feel like I missed some of it! Anyway, thanks so much for another masterful novel. You remain my favorite author, bar none.

Thanks for the update, Darrell! Momerath still sits on top of my stack of CDs. And thanks for the very kind words about CITY.

Its really good; I often reread parts of Anvil Of Stars and the music is stark and spare as a gas giant ring system.

Darrell, that's really nice music, and I think it's going to be interesting, too, on first quick listen to your expression on several images from the book that I remember.
Looking forward to enjoying the length of it. And thinking it's very generous of you to make Momerath available to us.
