Oh, now, come on - Mr. Walker isn't an "old man." He's only 11 years older than me.

The real reason Rob Walker posts on PC's board is that sadly, no one posts on his. Similarly, I fear that the motivation for continuing to visit the board despite his having given up on PC long ago is merely that he is a sad and lonely old man who has clearly never really experienced success. Remember, not all success is measured by commercial wealth or fame. Why not revel in your own superlative work Rob, and stop criticizing the work of others who must have filled you with jealously and resentment. Be proud of your own work, hope that others read your work, and visit someone else's board. Try your own; maybe you'll respond.

Elaine, I believe that the book that Benton comes back in is Blow Fly. Six years has past and the first time Pete and Benton talk and see each other is very emotional! Alot of answers from previous books are given in Blow Fly. J

How much clearer can I be? If an author, any author leaves you confused, this is not intended and it is not your fault. Not the reader's fault but the author's fautl. Where in that does it say I think the reader foolish or stupid? Nowhere. I am saying when an author leaves you with umpteen questionos, then there is somethig flawed in the writing. As for my teaching and book doctoring, people always come back for more. One of my students has taken my writing class 5 times. In person, I'm a sweetheart and an excellent editor. As to reading PC, I rather gave it up some time back. Have listened to some of her books on tape, but as with Stephen King's writing, I just feel she's allowed her early fine work to turn into something of a soap opera. I am reading JA Konrath's Rusty Nail right now and I find it clear, horrific, and funny all at once. As to why I post here, I am a Scorpio.

Goog point, Sharon. I have yet to read a positive post from Rob regarding P.C. and I know he wasn't out right calling anyone an idiot on this board, but the way he wrote his post he was just as confusing as P.C. is on her latest book, At Risk. What I wanted to know if anyone else had any issues with that book so we could all discuss THE book. I did not request why P.C. or her editor ex-husband are not getting the job done. So Rob, if you have read her book, At Risk, maybe we could discuss the book. Or have you even read any of her books? Or maybe you should send her your resume in attempts to be her NEW editor. That way you can really school her instead of telling US how you would school her. I hate how this board always turns into a bashing fest.

You are right, Robert did not call anyone an idiot. What he did do was assume everyone has a hard time understanding her writing. Also he seemed to inply that one side or the other was an idiot. If it was not one or the other then his comment made no sense what soever. It was unclear as you can see. There are obviousely at least two interepatations. That would lead one to believe that Mr. Walkers comment was not exactly clear. Is that not what his complaint about P.C.'s writing has been about for a long time. I will repeat what I said many mounths ago, why is someone on a wep site for a writer they can not stand? There is a great diffeerence between diolage and constant attack. I would like to see Mr. Walker write on posative posting about P.C. and her writing. If he can not do that why is he here?
