I’m not so famous an author that I get a lot of fan letters, but with The Genius Plague newly out on the street, I’ve been receiving some this month. Maybe if I were George Martin or Andy Weir I’d be tired of such things and shrug them off, but for me, there’s no greater delight than hearing how people have enjoyed my books and how my stories have connected with them. Publication schedules are so slow that by the time a new book comes out, I’ve been sitting on it for quite some time, waiting for the day when readers can finally enjoy it. So if you’ve read The Genius Plague and want to send me a letter, but think you might be bothering me by doing so — don’t hold back! I love to get them, and I always respond.

And to all of you: thanks for reading!
