I love your writing and have read most of it, my favourite being Moving Mars and Eon though your short stories are some real gems. You seem to be a kind and sensitive man given your insights of people seen in your writings and your imagination is to me the best I have yet to experience short of my own. I look forward to your next book especially if it has a space theme and not so much a medical one. I am a middle aged female and you make me forget my problems when I read your stories and as you seem to have such a good view of women I feel better being one as there are some who tend to not see that no matter the sex great minds, will, experience and creativity may be present. I especially enjoyed your comments in your collection of short stories on your own writing process...you have blessed us with your mind and ability.

Many thanks, Linda. I'm not sure CITY AT THE END OF TIME can be considered a space travel novel--though there is a pretty spectacular voyage buried in it--but there's little in the way of heavy-duty biological theory. Crackpot physics and weird philosophy, definitely!
