Dear Mr. Bear:

I'm very pleased you and Mr. Dozois are editing a memorial volume in honor of your late father in law Poul Anderson called MULTIVERSE. And to be released next Fall.

I did wonder why Sandra Miesel was not in the list of contributors. She is well known not only as a writer in her own right but also as a shrewd and perceptive commentator on the works of Poul Anderson. An essay from her for MULTIVERSE would have been natural!

Sincerely, Sean M. Brooks

She would certainly have contributed critical acumen. But this is a collection of original stories by authors heavily influenced by Poul, set in Poul's universes. As such, I look forward to Ms. Miesel's judgments on how well they've succeeded!

Dear Mr. Bear:

I agree, once you pointed it out, that MULTIVERSE is meant to be a collection of stories in honor of Poul Anderson by setting them in the universes he created. Not a volume of commentary analyzing the works of your father in law.

All the same, a separate volume devoted solely to commentary on PA's works seems to be a good idea as well. And one in which an essay from Sandra Miesel makes sense. I hope something like that is done in the near future.

Sincerely, Sean M. Brooks
