David R. Palmer Message Board

With all the garbage that passes for plotlines on many of the sci-fi series out there, it amazes me that Palmers work hasn't been used as the basis for it's own series.

To Nathan Barker:
Thanks for the info. I'm new to the message board and didn't think to look back.
Mr. Palmers books are hard to put down. Not much Sci-Fi published these days is like that. I hope he publishes soon.

I've stated this before on this board but it seems time to refresh the post. "To Halt Armageddon" was never published. Mr. Palmer did not finish the book according to contract and both his regular job and contract problems prevented his returning to writing after "Threshold". He did indeed return to his job as a court stenographer (though not in Florida as someone had indicated). He has now retired and, last I spoke to him, planned to resume writing again.

I have seen the title "To Halt Armageddon" (by David R Palmer) on the web. Its supposed to be the sequel to "Threshold". I've tried to buy it online, but it is always listed as out of stock. I once knew the Library of Congress number for the book, so I thought it had been published. So my question is: was this book ever really published? I'm dying to read it, just to find out how you kill a galaxy-sized anti-energy being.

I don't think he is listening, David Foster-Smith!

Never heard of Candy-no relation but my daughters, sisters neices and mother may know different. Where did you get the name from?

I reread both Threshold and Emergence
every year or so. Really do enjoy them. I think he peaks too high and too soon, so I wonder if he just couldn't think of anything to top himself?? But his characters are fun, the kind of people you like to hang out with, which is my criterion for buying books.

Also, Joy, a good friend of mine has been trying to get a science fiction trilogy published for quite some time and has run into the genre dilemma with Tor books as well as a couple of private agents. I'd be very interested to know what publisher you work for so that my friend can perhaps look into it.

Well, I e-mailed a man of the same name whose career record closely matched that I'd inferred for Palmer in my 20 year old copy of Emergence, and I've yet to hear a reply which makes me think either I got the wrong 'David R. Palmer' (there seem to be quite a few) or the address was no longer functioning.

Hopefully, when Mr. palmer retires, in two or three years. He will start writing again. If not, maybe he can post his incomplete notes or ideas. I am getting tired of making up my own enddings. Please write again!
