The official word from them is that DG is still working on the trilogy and they will publish when he's done. My understanding, however, was that it was all written just never found a publisher (I believe it was originally one large novel). Anyone know what is up with the series? I have the first book in the trilogy but am putting off reading until I find out if the other two parts are ever going to see the light of day.

posts on 9/10/2006 7:08:18 PM Due to the great connectivty of Chtorran and Terran ecospheres I think that they origin either from time travel experiments (see deathbest from Mr.G. and I remember there was a hidden hint in one of the four books) from the far future, although panspermia would do as well.

posts on 9/8/2006 8:42:22 PM It would be interesting to analyze the Chtorran DNA (or equivalent) to see if they origin from a potential future of the earth or if the panspermia hypothesis is more likely.
posts on 9/8/2006 5:38:37 PM I recently had an thought/suspicion about the nature of the neural symbiots. What if centuries? millenia? ago the top species in the Chtorran ecology developed something akin to the neural net that Ted/Tanjy is part of, but instead of hardware they used organic links (the symbiots.) (This is in contrast to the idea that the symbiots are a naturaly evolved organism, something I used to think was/and still could be so.) And either purposefully, or accidentally the symbiots were released into the general enviroment, infecting the original Chtorran ecology. Now the Chtorran "mass-mind" has evolved into a single conciousness, using an entire eco-system as it's body. This would help explain Jim's halucination in the hospital after being severly infected with symbiots at the begining of book two: of the Chtorran ecology wanting to "make it" with the rest of the galaxy. (What no dinner and a movie first? Help I'm being raped by the Chtorran ecology! Help Police!) And this has further led me to the idea that the ecology in the books is not an adult ecology, but an embrio of a Chtorran ecology. And every stage of the invasion is just another "month" in its gestation. Wait until it's born.
posts on 9/8/2006 8:33:10 AM It's funny, I find myself glad that I wasn't at the convention--I am not fond of "spoilers." I want the whole novel, all at once. "Be patient." I know, I know.
