Anvil of Stars/Forge of God were the first books to ever make me cry. They were the first stories that ever reached inside of my heart and yanked on something I didn't know was there. I was a kid and I didn't know books stories prose fiction could do that to someone. I spent days upon weeks upon months rereading certain parts and yammering about it to anyone that would listen. It felt like a key had been turned and a gate opened within me. It was sad but good, bittersweet with a touch of fear and excitement. That said, I've been keeping up with the saga of the whole movie thing and what not and someone somewhere mentioned that there was supposed to be a third book in the series. So is there another book in the works or has it just been too long? Is the heart and soul of what allowed you to write those books not there anymore? Or has the inspiration just faded? I can totally understand if that's the case but these books ignited a flame within me that burned throughout the rest of my life that allowed me to touch others to heal them to help them to create things and I would love to know if there's a mote of hope left for the series or not. Your works have touched my life in a profound way and I can never thank you enough for that. They taught me how to dream and made me reach out my window towards the sky for something more. Thank you so much for what you've done. I hope you're having a great day and are looking forwards to the New Horizons flyby of Ultima Thule in a few days.

Many thanks, Joe-- No third book yet. And no movie in the works, though the novels have been "borrowed" from numerous times!
