Topic: Darwin's Radio Is Music to the Ears

Greetings and Salutations Mr. Bear!
I have enjoyed your many books over the years and have just recently stumbled on to Darwin's Radio on CD. It was one of the few books I had not read and on a whim, I purchased it to listen to on a flight to Seattle.
Your references to Seattle and Atlanta put me into giggles, as I have lived both places and know the University of Washington campus very well and currently reside not far from Piedmont Hospital in Atlanta. I couldnt resist letting you know how much I enjoyed envisioning those places in the story, places that I know and love. A small thing, yes, but something that, unlike other stories, made me feel as though I was part of the characters, not just an observer. I knew their stories and I had been there with them, walking on those same sidewalks.
Thank you for that experience.

My pleasure, Amanda! Sometimes even in science fiction we get to dabble in regionalism.
