Hi there. If for some reason the information you seek isn’t readily available to you in one of this site’s many pages and/or you feel the need to tell/ask me something but don’t feel that doing so in a publicly visible comment is appropriate, then here’s where you can leave me a private note.

I’m already more than a little bit inundated with email, so it may be a few days before I manage to send a reply, but that’s still faster than a reply by regular mail would reach you. It’s all relative.

If you never hear back from me, it’s possible that the website has (for reasons that make sense to its positronic mind) determined that you are a Spammer and has chosen to spare me your remarks. Ooops. Still a few bugs in the system.

I don’t remember if Bish had children, but suppose he did.
After the memory of him was erased, what would a child of his reply if asked about his father? It seems weird that someone would say they had no father!

Memory is resilient. Much like Druz recalls she’s the Senator’s aide in the first book and concludes that must mean she works for Jorl not Bish.

In the event that Bish has children (I don’t believe he does), they’d unconsciously fill in the blanks so that their reality made sense.

Do you read story idea?
Thank you

No thanks, I have too many of my own.

In Moons of Barsk, the number of planets colonized is referred to as 4000. But later, Abenaki gives a calculation that implies it is 400. How many are there?

Sounds like a typo to me. The number should be 4000.

When is your next book coming out?


I’m Tanmayee and I’m currently a student at the Illinois and Mathematics and Science Academy. A couple of my friends and I are doing a project where we create our own speculative fiction world, and our teacher, Ms. Tracy Townsend, recommended that we contact you to get a little more direction for our project.

Currently, we are piggybacking off of the concept of binaural beats, which is when a different frequency is played into each ear and the interference it creates activates a certain part of your brain. In the real world, it is mostly used for relaxation, but we were thinking about taking this idea to an extreme so that the purposeful activation of certain parts of the brain could be used as a means of mind control.

We know you are very knowledgeable about psychology and have a lot of experience writing about and performing hypnosis, which to a certain extent is pretty similar to mind control. We were just wondering how you draw the line between what is realistic in the speculative fiction world that you create and the real world when it comes to hypnosis. Do you also have any tips for how to include psychology into speculative fiction?

We look forward to hearing back from you!

Dear Lawrence, I was wondering if you will be in the SF Bay Area any time soon. I’d like to get a book signed as a present for a friend. Feel free to email me and I’ll check back here.

Mr. Schoen – I recently purchased a copy of “Barsk” and was wondering if you would be willng to sign my copy. I would ship the book to you inside another box (self-addressed, with the appropriate postage) for the return trip. If this is possible please let me know and if not, thanks for reading this. Best, Richard Unz

FWIW — I just got the Jeremy Fabiano issue of Eating Authors. But clicking on his name to read his story gives me an ERROR 404.

I finally figured out what was causing the problem. It’s been fixed and should be fine now.
