Filed under: Far-Seer.
The least read of all my books are my novels Far-Seer, Fossil Hunter, and Foreigner — collectively, the “Quintaglio Ascension” trilogy.
(Lots of people just can’t seen to be able to get past the covers — the one part of the books I had no control over! The art is spectacular on its own merits — and I own the original Far-Seer cover painting — but plainer covers would have served this series better, I think.)
Anyway, I’m always particularly pleased to get fan letters related to that trilogy (the three volumes of which were first published in 1992, 1993, and 1994), and a very nice one arrived today:
I’ve enjoyed your writing since I first discovered your work, and just went back through my sf collection and stumbled across Far-Seer.
I am about half-way through re-reading the trilogy and am impressed all over again at the depth and three dimensionality of the world you created with the Quintaglios.
I wanted to send you my kudos on a series of books that still hold my interest — years later — and seem as fresh today as when I first read them.
