(Let's hope I can post this before the fricking power goes out again).
I have good news and bad news.
I've been cleaning out another of my old saved Usenet folders. This time for Rec.arts.sf.written. I came across a posting from August 1992 on Daniel Keys Moran
At that time he was one of my favorite SF authors. He had big plans for his Continuing Time Series. 33 novels in total. So far I think there has been 3-4. Then it went very quiet. Problems with Bantam, his publisher.
The good news (according to a recent post of his), is that he should be getting Players: The AI War back from Bantam this month. Hopefully he'll be able to line up a new publisher soon after that. I wish him all the best in this.
The bad news (also reported by DKM in the same post and which I didn't know), is that Terry Pratchett has early onset Alzheimers. More on this from The Register and the Beeb and in Terry's own words. As he puts it, this is an embuggerance indeed. I also wish him the very best.
