I should add that one of the things I love about Wilson is his way of taking ordinary things and... turning them inside out. He also writes on multiple levels; if you had the kind of education that lets you see the deeper level, you get more out of it, but if you don't see that stuff, you still have a very enjoyable story.
I wondered if anyone would catch that. :) N.D.Wilson is a relatively young (30's?) Christian author who writes some *very* interesting stuff. Non-fiction, you should check out Notes from the Tilt-a-Whirl. Fiction, I was referring to his Ashtown Burials series (The Dragon's Tooth, The Drowned Vault, Empire of Bones), but I'd actually recommend 100 Cupboards as a place to start. It has two sequels (Dandelion Fire and The Chestnut King), but it's a little lighter. The guy had a good classical education, and it shows. If you're just kind of curious about him, go to www.ndwilson.com for some good stuff. He's a good guy. And a good author, IMO.
Oh, don't worry, the signing line will go decently. I expect to end up with over 400 people there. Brandon will try to spend a solid moment or two with each person in line, he never wants a fan to feel shortchanged, but he will keep it going steady as well. He's very good at this, and the store is well experienced at dealing with many different authors and their wishes. We'll find a way to make sure he knows you're from the re-read "bunker". Did you know that Harriet is going to be there as well?
I have posted One Day in Eden on the forum section of the Tor site. I sent an email, or think I did. Sometimes they
don't get sent right.
Anyway, here is the link to it , if I do this right. http://forum.tor.com/threads/780-One-Day-in-Eden
Howdy, glad to hear from you. I'll lift a prayer for your son's SERE training. It can be gruesome, but it is the best preparation possible for facing the worst. About my comments, I do have to be careful not to cross any lines myself; I realize that many other commenters are from outside of the U.S., and have a right to their own views. I'm never going to change the mind of someone who thinks our military is filled with bad guys doing bad things, but I don't have to allow everyone else who is reading to be left with those negative impressions. Again, the encouragement is appreciated.
