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.

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 amazon.com; 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.

The sequel to Emergence is now being serialized in Analog Science Fiction and Fact, (July/August 2008). The novel should be out sometime next year.
Original copies of Emergence are now selling for a phenomenal price on Amazon, where Palmer has chimed in to say the sequel to Threshold has sold, and Emergence has been optioned as a movie and there is a screenplay written.
Life is good!

I just went to my local big box bookseller last night. The first installment is in the July/August double issue of Analog. It is not a figment of the imagination.

Don't worry David. Even if we are misled, the issues of Analog will be worth it!

Well, I ordered six issues of Analog, starting in July. I sure hope William R. Warren Jr. is not just stringing us along and playing us all for big fools.

To William R. Warren Jr.
Hey that's great! It good hearing that we all might finally get to read a new book by David R. Palmer.
A sequel on Emergence named Tracking is good, However...a new sequel for Threshold(In my opinion) would be better!
Do you have any news on that?

You sound believable, as you have taken the trouble to use the name of a working SF illustrator/artist!

Wonderful news. Are we sure that Analog isn't engaging in a bait and switch plot to get more subscriptions?
