... This is your host, Ryk Spoor.

 

For anyone visiting the site, I also encourage you to post (here or in the fiction discussion area) anything you'd like me to talk about on one of my Blog entries, a category I grandiosely call "Quest for Understanding".

Hi, Ryk, just saying hellow at the moment.  Looking forward to Portal, to see what changes Eric made, and the fantasy novel.

 

And I'm especially looking forward to the GCA sequel.

 

Now, stop wasting time reading this, and WRITE! ;-D

 

P. S.: Just remember, with the math required questions, that there's a limit to my appendages.

Hi,

 

Not much to say for an introduction.  I enjoy the Threshold series but really like Grand Central Arena and am happy to know a sequel is on the way.

Hi there! Oddly, I'm not getting Email notifications of new posts here, only replies on my blog, so I'm going to have to check in here regularly from now on!

Introductions always seem a little stilted to me. Nonetheless, I am a long-time lurker on various SF&F forums, especially Baen's Bar, who is trying to come in out of the shadows. I have enjoyed all of your books, although my favorite so far is Grand Central Arena. It seems to have so many possibilites for stories and characters. I also enjoyed Demons of the Past. I hope someone decides to pick it up and publish it. Now I have to go see if I can find any stories/books in the same set of worlds that I haven't read yet.

Thanks for coming by!

 

Phoenix Rising is in the same universe as Digital Knight and Demons of the Past, though set on the world of Zarathan and thus mostly separated from the others.

 

I've just handed in Spheres of Influence, the sequel to GCA, so hopefully that will get underway in publication soon.

Ryk,

     Woooot!!!!! Great to hear that the GCA sequel will be out soon. Any update on possible publication date? Working on a third book yet? I really just can't wait. This universe is one of the very best new concepts I've seen in years, and I'm very much looking forward to seeing how the characters develop.

          Thanks much, & keep up the great work!

Thanks, John! I have no official word, but if they don't ask for really extensive (as in, will take months to rewrite) revisions of Spheres, I'd expect it in about a year -- October or November next year.

Hi Ryk,

 

Just posted on your blog about Fallout and decided to register on your site. As I said in my bio, I really liked Arena and am really looking forward to Spheres. I've also enjoyed several of your blog entries and it definitely appears we share a lot of the same favorite authors and games.

 

Looking forward to your continuing works, Therman.

 Thanks, Therman! Welcome aboard! I'm hoping that now that Phoenix Rising is released we'll get a small but regular core of visitors here, too. :)

Yes, I know who you are! Welcome to my forum.

 

It's pretty quiet now, but maybe it will liven up in the next few months.

Hi Ryk,

 

Figured I would join since the "It's pretty quiet now, but maybe it will liven up in the next few months" sounded a bit forlorn. Loved GCA and Phoenix rising. Looking forward to the eARC for Spheres of Influence. I'm a quantum physicist by training, and have been working in machine learning more recently. Hope you had a great anniversary and Mother's day. Oh and thanks for the interesting posts on your blog. I especially liked the crime fighting in magical worlds ones recently.

Andrew

 

P.S. could you make some of the "Math Required" be integrals, or at least derivatives Wink (won't ask for pde's though that would be great)

Thanks for joining!

 

Yes, it's quiet now -- to the point I forgot to check it last week -- but if people start posting regularly, we might get more traffic!

 

I try to keep my site blog updated three times a week (M-W-F) barring things that absolutely demand my attention. Unfortunately with minimal time to write it's very hard for me to develop a buffer. If I ever become a full-time author this will change.

 

The eARC for Spheres should be out in August, so you've got a bit of a wait, although I'll start snippeting pieces of it earlier than that.

Hi all, especially Ryk.

 

Despite knowing the author before he published, I have been slow to start reading his stuff.  (Bad me.)  So far I am enjoying it, especially to see in the Balance Sword stuff I help bring to life while playing on his gaming world ages ago.  Reading also felt a bit like going home.  

 

Ryk, thank you for all the hard work you do to entertain us.
