In answer to your questions: I hope very much that a publisher in Spain or Mexico or any Spanish speaking country will at some point publish my books. I've had my novels in translations in quite a few other countries but for some reason never in Spanish. That part of the business isn't really up to me, though. As for a 'sequel' to Master of None, er, no. Sorry. It's a very nice compliment that you enjoyed the book enough to want more, but there's just not any 'more' in my head to write about. It IS a happy ending, sort of. Nathan does get what he's always wanted all his life, even if it wasn't what he expected. Sometimes there are things worse than living alone, and one of them is far too often living with someone else. I live alone (with my cat, Robinson) and I love it, never been happier in my life. So who's to say what a 'happy' ending is or should be? Besides, in Nathan's society, chance would be a fine thing if he had much privacy ever anyway! But thanks again for the kind words, and I hope you enjoy my next book as much as this one. Cheers!

Thanks very but very much for the book. I would like to ask you a couple of questions, 1) are your books ever going to be translated to spanish? not all my nieces in Argentina speak english. 2) Would you ever consider continuing the story of Master of None? You know the only thing that made me a bit sad about this book was the fact that Nathan (although with many friends and even his son) remains alone, that's why I ask, and yes I admit it I like happy endings, in this specific case a happier ending.

Lee and Gwenn...
OK, this has gone on long enough. I know Lee, personally, not only email. Lee knows who I am. I have known her for about 5 years. She has had the same email for these years. Now, if neither of you want to post your email addresses here, simply get an email from hotmail, yahoo, etc and post it. Then the other person can email you with their real email, use that and toss away the free email address. Simple. If you want, I will post an email, Gwenn can email me, I will give you Lee's email and we are done. It's not that complex.
Now some impostor could also post here and ask for your email but I don't really think that is a big risk.
So, Lee, you want me to post a junk email, Gwenn can email me and I can relay it?
So Lee, is it hot there in the north of the UK? It's flaming hot here in Michigan.

Hey-up, Gwenn. No, I've moved a couple times since we last met up, been through a couple computers as well, so my current email address book doesn't have yours in it anymore. Give my old one a shot, if you still have it, or - if you dare - leave yours on the message board. (I have good reasons for being so annoyingly cautious, trust me on that one.)

Lee, I keep attempting to post a message and when I check it hasn't posted. If you receive this can you email me at my address, since as I've tried to say, I've lost yours and would love to catch up- actually in packing I found the brochure from the market day we attended in your town! Is it still the same or have you moved?

Hey, contact me on my email so that I can email you non-publicly, what with each move, you know computer crashes and lost data. Are you still in your little village or a new one - and just an unimportant aside, I still use the keychain from that little station we visited on our driving tour! it's kept me 'grounded'!

Talk about a blast from the past (Shut up and drive!) My email address is still the same (and as this is a public forum and as much as I certainly adore all my fans, I'm not giving out private contact info!) So give it a shot, lots of news, some good, some bad. Let's catch up.

do you know how hard it's been to track you down? well, i'm not so easy either. after the US then back to Sydney and then again teaching in three cities (not concurrently) in the US again, I am now packing and on my way to Cairo - the American University in Cairo - so, and where are you? Still in the UK - status, all the rest, and how's your dad? When you sent me that one email about subletting, I tried to get back to you and couldn't - I know the years fly, but as I was packing, I found copies of the pictures we took and then the imprint for Terry's famous T-shirt - you know - 'don't drink without us'! i do hope you're still abroad - let me know, this is my Cairo email - i'm leaving the states on 22nd August, classes begin 5th september - just a jump across the pond? hope all is well, see your nice series of books after the Mahdi (which i did read and enjoyed)- of course! hope to hear from you soon.

Thanks very much, Gabriela and Marsha, for the kind words. Amazing - I just write stories, and it's always startling to me (I don't know why) when I discover they're actually being read by people I've never even met. Cool. Glad you've enjoyed what I do.

Great book, my husband and I love sf and we are glad to find this great work.
