I've been a HUGE fan of yours for ages, from Nightflyers (I CRIED at the end!!) and Lair of the Worm (I squirmed, it was so REAL), and Tuf Voyaging (LOVE that one) and all the amazing, interconnected short stories... I've raved to others, tried to get them to read you, too. When I read the Times review, I was SO offended, SO disappointed. I think the problem was some MORON choosing that IDIOT to do the review. Obviously, she didn't WANT to do it, and was in ALL ways a stupid choice. Thank you, George, for all the stories, and all those to come, THIS Nerdgirl love you for it. THIS Nerdgirl happens to enjoy herself some serious, heavy Fantasy AND Science Fiction, sex or no sex, and I always will.
