I have discovered your books, starting with Eon, and I can't get enough. My family thinks I am nuts. I wish, wish wish that I had someone to discuss these books with!!
Thank you for writing such magical, profound, enriching books

Thanks for writing, Dorothy! No doubt there are folks around this site happy to discuss these things with you through the Forum. And if you have any questions, I can try to answer them as well.

I know what you mean Dorothy. I read Legacy first to sort of pay my dues and when I started reading Eon I knew the background behind 'The Way' and 'Thistledown'. I just love the character Olmy. When the Hexamon decided to split the Axel City into the Geshels and Naders and then accelerate the Geshel city down the Way to close to the spead of light to deal with the Jarts, I said to myself 'sweet!'. I am starting Eternity now and will be at my reading chair with its swing arm lamp tonight.

Dorothy (how apropo, eh?), look round at SF writer's and readers' forums. Curiosity and certainty will guide you.

Dorothy. I am with you 100%. Even GB himself suggested I was stuck in a time-warp because I could not stop re-reading Eon. I know my family thinks I am nuts too. You are not alone!



Cheers. Jon Kroll
