Hello,I am Milan Pavlovic,from Serbia.I read your books,but I send my oppinion about book Eon.It was very good book and read in 1993/94.Other books Eternity,Moving Mars..did not follow idea in book Eon.Why ?
You are best reader in SF ,but in Serbia your books did not sell in Books shops,why?
I bought 5 books in books shops in serbian language,but you wrote 25 books in english and I did not bought in Serbia.

Thanks for writing and for your kind words! Back in the 1980s, most of my novels were sold in the former Yugoslavia under the bundle of Serbo-Croation rights. After the collapse of the Soviet Union and the breakup of Yugoslavia, rights were sold separately--but not as many of my books were published in Serbia and Croatia during those difficult times. ETERNITY of course is a sequel to EON, but perhaps you did not hear of LEGACY, which is a prequel?

Hi. I have been thinking of a series for moving Mars for a long time now, but I just reread Songs of Earth and Power. And i am kind of stuck. I really like your first books - they flow well. Its just every book I read I imagine acted out. Good ones anyhow. I am not one to write to famos folks, but after Nelson died- all bets are off. I will write to you folks, and maybe you might care what I think. Moving Mars is a 4 season show, and Songs of Earth and Power is an 8 . Season 8 involves riverine hands helping during a race down the Colorado river, and also in the Iditarod .Please reply if this piques your interest. I will keep reading your books, and thank you for writing them.

Thanks, Paula. SONGS and MOVING MARS are quite a stretch for any TV series!
