He is on Face Book all the time, so he IS alive. But I agree with the comments, we are all probably gonna be dead before the next book. DEFINITELY before the end of the series!

Not to sound odd but is David still alive? or if he still is why no comments from him to his fan base who at this rate are all going to die off before the next book arrives.

What's the word fans? Are we gonna see a new Chtorr book any time soon???

I've been wondering about the Grass books as well. My understanding is he has them written, they just need to be published. Here's hoping.

No offense taken, Jim. Gerrold is my favorite writer. I'm going to sing his praises, but I also can see his faults. Like I wrote before, the excerpt is actually a pretty difficult read, but is worth it. "The Involuntary Human," a retrospective designed for a sci-fi writers' convention, is a great combination of old and new, including a preferred version of "Chess With a Dragon". Personally, I'm not going to punish myself because he hasn't published the next book in the Chtorr series. I love reading his work. Why would I avoid new books/stories by an author whose work brings me joy? The Starsiders Trilogy was a great deal of fun to read. Besides, I'm pretty sure the Chtorr book is going to get published. I'm actually more worried about seeing the Sea of Grass trilogy completed. Has anybody heard his plans with that series? At any rate, I don't feel Gerrold has any obligation to me. He writes the books that he can write. I buy the books if I want to read them. See, I'm not obligated either. Neither are you, Jim. It will all work itself out. :-)

No offense Spooky, but you sound like a Carnival Barker for D.G. I will not purchase or read anything of his until "That Book" is in my hands. I find it remarkable D.G. can find the time to continue writing other things but can't, after over 17 years finish AMFM.

Just read "Dancer in the Dark" and it's up there with some of DG's early stuff--Deadlands, etc.
He can be such a good writer sometimes (other times, just good diversion). Anywho, I recommend picking up a copy of "Involuntary Human" if you can find one (good luck!).
Haven't read "It Needs Salt" yet, still undecided if I will....

I've read it.
It is psychotic. I mean, bugger-style crazy! Jim is ummm....different. And difficult.
It is wonderful and frustrating all at once. The whole narrative is unlike anything I had ever read up until that point. I was having to WORK as a reader, which can be frustrating if I'm looking for simple escapist literature. But really, has this series ever been "simple?"
It really is an amazing read. Go for it! It certainly made me eager for the whole deal.
Let's hope the first four books see rerelease (hardback editions please).

Just started "The Involuntary Human" and am trying to decide if I'm going to read the Chtorr segment from book 6. I hate spoilers as a rule, but it's been a long time since I've read anything new that was Chtorrian.... Has anyone read the bit I'm talking about? two cents anyone...

He is on Facebook all the time. Has anyone asked him or does he de-friend you if you do?
