What's Up, Doc?

"Never play poker with a man called Doc," Nelson Ahlgren once warned.

Guess my poker-playing days are over.

I am very pleased. Thanks to all my friends at A&M.

(When will I be returning to College Station to get the degree? Not till WINDS is done).

Honorary Degree, yippee!
Congrats! The article mentions that you're sending the Cushing Library copies of everything you've written. One of my interests as a writer (of sorts) is the writing process and how different authors uniquely grapple with their own writing and the various manuscript partials they attack. Do you imagine that you'll sends your WINDS manuscript(s) over to Texas A&M? If so, will you send them your complete "unedited" manuscript or is your plan to send them the manuscript once it's been worked over by your editors?

Again, congrats! I have never made it to Texas A&M, but I've heard the campus and library are top-notch.

I do send my manuscripts to A&M... eventually.

Life imitates art again? (re the gathering of all books into the Autarch's citadel in Wolfe's BOOK OF THE NEW SUN, said library and citadel based partly on his cadet days at A&M)

Will you re-open your A DANCE WITH DRAGONS manuscript to the public after WINDS publishes? As someone who has struggled with my own manuscript for 8 years now, I'd love to see the writing/editing steps you took along the way to overcome the hurdles of Kong.

The A&M campus and the A&M Libraries ARE top-notch. Plus, due in part to George's contributions we have what I think is the best SciFi/Fantasy collection in the country. (Sorry, Riverside... :-)
