Hi Greg! I don't know if you'd remember me but i was a server at the restaurant inside of the EMP/Science Fiction museum. I was introduced to you by Donna Shirley because she knew of my love of science fiction in general and that you were my longstanding favorite author. You and i had several conversations over those months and was the highlight of the time i spent living in Seattle.
I wanted to tell you how much i have enjoyed recent books of yours like the Halo trilogy, Hull Zero Three, and especially City at the End of Time which i hold to be one of the great achievements of human literature.
I am curious and excited what this new trilogy of yours. Is there anyway you could give us a few teasers about the setting/scope/characters/ect. in it??
Since i read Blood Music as a preteen you have been enriching my life. Thanks so much.

Hello, Robert! Good to hear from you! WAR DOGS is heavy-duty space-combat science fiction, set on one of my favorite planets--Mars--with a very different perspective--wry, a touch satirical, thoroughly dubious--and pointing toward unexpected revelations on our origins and responsibilities. The next two volumes will expand the sense of scale enormously. Natch.
