Can't remember if I have posted here in the past, but I'm glad to see things coming back to life again!
I have greatly enjoyed almost everything written by you, as well, and keep hoping to see more things coming down the pike! (Gar Pike, of course.)
It has been horrible to go from three or four books a year to one book every three or four years, and I can't help but start to dislike the editors who have cut us back on your books!
Please continue to keep us informed about new works as they make it through the publishing process.

I'm looking forward to seeing where you go with the new stories. Fantasy allows for plenty of ideas and situations, and has the scope to cheer us all up at the same time. Lets face it, we can all do with that.
Very nearly signed off with a truly appalling pun- I'll avoid unleashing that on an unsuspecting world!
Happy Christmas and best of luck for a great 2010

Steve, thank you for the kind words. I hope you'll read my forthcoming books -- and I hope I'll get to writing them! I keep meaning to write a story about broadcasting in a fantasy world. One of my students came up with a great idea -- wired radio in a Middle Earth universe. The signal would flow through vines containing a large percentage of metallic salts. That's right -- they hear it through the grapevine. Don't blame it on me, I only opened the door; it was the kid who chose to walk through it.
Pat East, I am very flattered by your kiind words. I can ask no greater reward then helping someone make sense out of this world. Every time I think I have, it changes on me! But stay tuned, and we'll all try to figure it out together. I agree with the bgutton I saw at a con -- reality is a crutch for people who can't handle fantasy. Please keep reading -- if there are enough of us on the quest, maybe we'll find something!

Just like to tell you that I read the first Warlock books back before my wife and I married back in the early 80s. My eldest son is now working his way through the series. Just about managed to complete the set, for him of course!
Best of luck in the future.

You are welcome. Thank you for the many happy hours I have spent with your books! If you would like to speak to Joel Wentworth, my husband, directly, look me up on google or in a phone book. My first name is spelled unusually enough that I am easier to find than he is...we are living in Omaha.
I think I still have one or two of the books about Rod's children to read, but I have read and loved all of the original Warlock books, and have groaned over many a pun with you. I even lived in Montclair at the same time at you, but never got up the courage to call and say "Linda Enders and Paul Baker say that you are just as much fun as your books"....so anyway, keep writing.

Thanks for the update, Joel and my best to you and Linda. Amazing that you knew the same people at different times -- but that just goes to show that you both have good taste. Tell her "thank you" for me.

Hi Chris. No, I regrettably did not get your first of 2009 message. The fiancee I mentioned in 2008 has been my beloved wife - she's looking over my shoulder - since May. She brought a dowry of most of your books. She knew a lot of the people I knew in Lincoln, such as Baker, Linda E, and Rod M, just never at the same time as me. We live in Omaha, feel free to look up Laurey Steinke in order to find a breadcrumb trail to me

Joel, did you receive my beginning of 2009 message? Hope all is going well for you. For the Resident Viking and the Longtime Fan, my son is talking me into some 'gap-filling' stories -- he has some question about characters who only appeared once, and some loose ends. However, they'll be a while coming. Have to wait for my fabled web page to put the occasional short up -- if I ever get the web page started THANK YOU ALL for reading, and for encouragement.

I have been a dedicated "Warlock" fan since February 1978. I even used to have a copy of the original version of "King Kobold," but I lost it ( I wish I could get another). I am quite surprised with myself at how very keenly I felt the loss of an admittedly fictional character. Will there be any "gap-filling" stories? Will there be any more "Heirs" stories? Thank-you for many years of reading enjoyment!

Your resident Viking here once again!
Once more I entreat...I plead...I BEG for stories spanning the time between "Escape Velocity" and "Warlock in Spite of Himself"!
Having completed the "Warlock" arc, would it not be a good time to look to the origins of Gramarye? To reveal the exploits of the Romantic Emigres(nee SCA) in their search through the stars? To find excuses for even more outrageous puns? 8-)
