Christopher, I can not express to you how important your books have been to me throughout my life. They have quite literally shaped who I am and continue to be guidepost when I'm trying to figure out my place in a very confusing life. They have been absolutely invaluable to me when it comes to explaining how I have become who I am to a good friend of mine as I have passed my collection of your books to her to read. As soon as she began to read them, she stated that it all made sense now, and I feel that shows just how influential your books have been. I look forward to passing them to my children when I eventually have some and hope that they can glean the type of insight and judgment that I have.

Thanks very much, Jon. I haven't stopped writing. In the last four years, I've writen three new books, not related to any of the preceding ones,and am currently working on a tale of a pocket war in the Asteroid Belt. Editors generally have pretty good judgement as to what the fans want to read. However, I'm not about to stop writing. I think the story about the wizard who accidentally changes himself into a frog and can't change back, would be enjoyable, so I may cobble up a website or a blog and put up a chapter for readers' reactions. If I do, I'll put my name on it, so google me now and then and see if I live up to my threats.
In the meantime, thanks very much for the kind of praise that keeps me going.

It has been about four years since the last release of a Stasheff book! Is there any hope of something new coming down the pike in the near future?
I have loved almost every book Stasheff has written, and miss seeing new titles!

Read A Warlock in Spite many years ago when trolling the library for something different to read. It then disappeared off the shelves and spent a long time trying to find a copy. Now I spend a long time searching for copies of all the Warlock, the Heirs, Company of Stars and so on that I can get my hands on as I have been told many of them are out of print and not available in Aust. Love the stories and never get sick of themes. Very intelligent. Thanks for a great read.

New Years Eve is as good a time as any to admit that time will not stand still,and I had better post while it matters. My fiancée pointed out Rebecca's posts to me, and has been urging me (now successfully)to jump in. I remember many a happy evening playing Botticelli in the IHOP in Lincoln back in the 70's. Of course, you were a wise old Ph.D candidate of 27 back then, and seemed to know everything. It's been a delight to watch ideas from back then turn into finished products. More importantly, I
get to tell you what a good influence having known you has been. All my best.- Joel "the kid" from the sci-fi

Mr. Stasheff, I just wanted to say that I have really enjoyed reading and re-reading your work. Your books have all been well written and I have especially enjoyed your use of characters from everything from Shakespeare to thought experiments (Puck, the personification of Maxwell's Demon, etc.) to add spice to your work. I have also liked your portrayal of religion, morality, and the Catholic Church. Like just about everyone else on this board, I was wondering if there was any more news regarding a forthcoming conclusion to the wizard in rhyme series? Thank you for writing all of your books, they have provided me many enjoyable hours of reading.

Your writing has gotten me through so many rough times in my life. There have been situations where I could fade away into your fantasy world and completely get lost and become one with you. You have been such an inspiration and given gifts in ways unimaginable that continue to warm my soul to the very being. Never stop being you and giving me your fantasy world for years to come.

Are you going to continue the story of the Gallowglass heirs? I've enjoyed seeing how they've grown up, but I want to see what niche Alea finds for herself.
