That was an interesting evening last night at the Myseterious Galaxy Bookstore...with three Mystery/Triller writers talking about their current books, and you stepping in as MC to keep the talk rolling.

If I hadn't been so dead tired I would have asked you about film blurb on the back jacket inside of Mariposa regarding the planet killer books.

Thanks for more details on the Halo project. Didn't initially know how or why that was playing out...but when you stated "They" are giving you free reign to create the entire backstory of the Forerunners and why the Halos are out there...the closest thing to that creatively was when DC gave Larry Niven carte blanch to totally re-do Green Lantern.

I hadn't run into David Brin in 25 years, and that was a graduate seminar at UCSD with Kim Stanley Robinson...Brin's ripenned into a totally differnt and yet the same person in that quarter century...but I think that can be said for most people.

Good luck on the rest of the Book Tour.

Sorry you didn't speak up, Mike! Good to see you there. I was getting over a cold, and could hardly put one thought in front of another--so I thought I'd ask questions and make the other authors work. But the crowd was a good one, and I hope everyone got their novels across. We're reading Alan and Martin's books now. And David is closing in on the end of a new novel--hurray!

There's been a lot of "that" going on, around the world...luckily no saw bones decided you had the Swine Flu being over cautious.
