Another nice bit of fan mail

Woot! Go me!
Well, it's been almost a year and I have finished reading the last of your books and short stories. I've read every single one!

I'm writing to tell you how much I have enjoyed them all. Your characters are believable. The science in the stories is fascinating. I love the philosophical and theological implications of the tales. The stories stay with me after I have finished them and provide opportunities for further thinking! And discussion... My two teens are tired of hearing me talk about "Robert J. Sawyer". :-)

Actually, my daughter has read three of your books and enjoyed them very much and my son always asks me to tell him about the plot of the book I have just finished.

My favourites have been the Neanderthal trio, Calculating God (my all-time favourite) and, to my surprise, The End of an Era. I was even amazed to find myself enjoying the Quintaglio Ascension. I didn't think I would like dinosaurs as main characters, but you made them believable.

Just wanted to let you know how much I have enjoyed your work.
Which is precisely what I needed to hear as I struggle to finish my new novel Watch, which is due 10 days from now ...
