Wes Whitley posts on 10/20/2008 1:48:39 PM Starexplorer, et al. My pleasure. I did manage to get copies of the analog serial and stayed up until 5 in the morning reading it, which distressed my wife, but, darn it, I've waited 25 years for this book! I was impressed/awed/amazed at how good it was, and once again have to say that it's every bit (prepare for blasphemy) as good as RAH. Assuming that Mr. Palmer every happens to note this, thank you! It was almost good enough to forgive the wait, but, I swear, if I have to wait another 25 years for the next book I shall be vexed sir! Vexed! lol, kidding aside. I very much enjoyed the book and am very much looking forward to reading the rest of the Emergence* series as well. You've been sorely missed and I am delighted to see you back in production. *Even if I, still, don't get all the puns.

starexplorer posts on 10/19/2008 10:08:09 AM LOL Bill! And thank you to you and to Wes for keeping us updated! Tracking was a fun romp like Emergence, and I loved the illustration as well. Please keep us informed!
William posts on 10/19/2008 6:04:51 AM I apologize to all, life has taken unusual turns (as it is wont to) but the Wormhole Press versions of Dave's new works are actually proceeding and, have I anything to say about it, will be worth the anticipation. At the moment, a disaster rivaling the Mauritania or Titanic has been preoccupying my attention. I hope you will bear with me, the welfare of a child is at stake and nothing ... I repeat, NOTHING ... is more important at this moment. I dasn't say more, particularly online. So, in deference to David and his and my own career, I briefly wish you, All the best, always, Bill P.S. -- Hang in, folks -- this will all be worth the wait and buzz, but "my" Candidia is being used as a weapon more vile than you can imagine (see the Analog illustrations) and while she may have been lost for the book versions, I am COMMITTED to saving her from a fate truly worse than death. I love her dearly, and am in fear for her mortal safety.
Wes Whitley posts on 10/19/2008 4:10:15 AM To David J. lol, sorry it took me so long to get back to the board. At this point it's silly for me to say anything more than "See?", but it was Spider Robinson that told me about the new manuscripts. I had written him to congratulate him on the job he did on the Heinlein manuscript, and asked about the mention of "David Palmer" in his afterword. I didn't include that at the time as I did not want to be responsible for a deluge of email to Spider to verify what I had said. And I just now found out about this release, so I've got to look around and see if I can find or buy an e-version of it.
DAVID J posts on 8/28/2008 12:29:13 AM David R. Palmer, all I can say is BRAVO! O.K,...also, may I, please have another? I finally, just got ANALOG issues. TRACKING is a three part serial, JULY/AUGUST, SEPTEMBER, OCTOBER[October, of course come first]. I just started reading and could not put it down until I reached the very end. Fantastic! David R. Palmer, please inform your steadfast and loyal fans of any upcoming new additions. Specificity, the publishing date of your new book, SPECIAL EDUCATION. Thank you.
Tom Ligon posts on 7/23/2008 11:07:03 PM Palmer is a genius. Period. I write this stuff myself, so take it from an expert. I envy this man's talent. I just finished _Tracking_, and it is every bit as good as _Emergence_ I would not have thought it possible. Has a few spots that are also so funny I laughed until tears came.
DAVID J posts on 7/20/2008 9:28:58 PM Wow! David R. Palmer actually reads his own web site. Thank you for finally responding. You know, I was just trying to irritate and spur you into action. I knew you were physically alive. I just wondered if your mind and soul still burned with the same passion and creative sparks of 25 years ago. I am eagerly awaiting your creative genius. Besides, After 25 years, I am still waiting to meet the perfect woman, Jeniffer Smith.
Robert posts on 7/20/2008 4:47:36 PM From 24 of 24 people found the following review helpful: Rip Van Palmer resurfaces..., April 4, 2008 By David R. Palmer (Florida) - See all my reviews This review is from: Emergence (Mass Market Paperback) Hi, people. I hope the webmaster's rules permit this. First, thanks for your enduring loyalty. It's been 25 years since my last book. Some of you will be pleased to learn that "Tracking," the sequel to "Emergence," is being serialized in three parts by Analog SF magazine, commencing with the July/August double issue, due out toward the end of this month. Inchoate talk are also underway with Wormhole Press to bring "Tracking" out as a hardcover and paperback sometime next year. Secondly, I've also completed "Spcial Education" (dunno if that'll show up properly in HTML; it's "special," with a long-vowel diacritical bar over the "e," as in "species"), sequel to "Threshold." Thirdly, I just finished "Schrödinger's Frisbee," an unrelated SF novel about a boy and his dog, his girlfriend -- and alien abduction. And finally, a movie option has been sold for "Emergence"; a screenplay now exists. The efforts of anyone who wishes to join me in breath-holding and finger-crossing will be appreciated. Wormhole Press is equally interested in them, and in rereleasing "Emergence" and "Threshold." Check back here occasionally on; coerce your local booksellers. Tell two friends; ask them to tell two friends, etc. Repeat this to a depth of 20 conversations and you've alerted over a million friends. Thanks again for your enthusiasm and patience -- and for the kind thoughts embodied in the occasional, somewhat premature eulogies I've read here and on other websites. Very truly, David R. Palmer
