for clarification of perspective I am half black half mexican. Blood music was the first book I read of my own accord, I have read countless since, I pegged you for a humanist. I read Eon some time latter after reading Chaos wich I thought was an asimovian attempt, admiarably, and pegged you for a racist (no non-anglo systems participants, the line "I destroyed as much of the world as I could stand to part with" or something like that). I'm now reading Queen of angels with / on my shelf waiting its turn. I don't know what to think. Thank you for that.

Thanks, Stephen! Not sure what to think of your criticism. There are plenty of non-Anglos in EON, including Patricia. And even a fair number of non-humans! But QUEEN OF ANGELS should cause even more confusion, with Mary Choy, who chooses to be black. Shiny, jet black. Looking forward to your thoughts!
