Thanks, Marv! That's so long ago I don't recall the thinking behind the Stone and parallel universes--but I was inspired by a Syd Mead painting called "Disaster at Syntron" for some of the visuals, if not the actual Stone itself. No Ph.D--just a bachelor degree in English.

I have completed the reading of Eon. Great novel! Any chance of this story being made into a movie? What is your new novel about? Marv Brilliant

Thanks, Marv! No way of knowing about movies or TV, but we're working the town. The new novel, at the moment, if about halfway done! And no more to be said until I finish it, when I'll know more myself.
