>>>>I'm sure every SF book out there has been reviewed numerous times on various .alt lists and discussion boards! Amazon posts reviews. And even if you self-publish, you can get listed on Amazon.

Kate: Really? Why would Amazon include a list of books it doesn't sell, or are you saying that Amazon sells books by self-published authors?

>>>>His readers are very close to writing him off because the last two 600 pg books haven't advanced the story. Even in just the 2nd story, I find him summarizing the 1st and it's irritating. The review I read on the last book was that the whole thing just summarized the story to day. I guess that's the 'event horizon' of an epic series.

Yeah, I can see how that would be annoying. To some extend, I feel the same way about "greatest hits" albums. If I have already bought an artist's previous albums, why would I want to buy them again on a "best of" compilation. By the same token, if I start out with just the "greatest hits" album, why would I want to buy the lesser albums with mostly also rans on it? <grin>

>>>>Keep up the good work!

Thanks, I'm trying! <g>

Mark.
