    I discovered you via EscapePod some years ago and follow the Diving Universe but due to a crowded reading schedule I am remiss in a couple. I promise to catch up now that I have Boneyards under my belt. Thanks for a fresh voice in an otherwise tired genre.

  2. skippen says:

    I know they are all your “babies” but do you prefer your novel version of some of the stories or the originals?

    • It’s all about the characters and the story in my head, skippen. So they’re one big manuscript–story–in my brain. I don’t prefer one or the other (Although I might have some favorite characters–and I won’t admit who they are.)

  3. Greg Fernald says:

    Thank you for the Diving Universe Series, They rank up there with Armor, the Pern books, and Battlefield Earth as ones I reread every 2-3 years. I’m missing a few, which I will try to get now.

  4. AussieAbroad says:

    Where does “Encounter on Starbase Kappa” fit in to the series?

  5. JenW says:

    Are the “Diving into the Wreck” novella and novel different stories? Wondering if I need to buy and read novella, as I already have the novel.

  6. Jay says:

    I know you do a lot of juggling, but when can we expect another book in the series?

  7. I am a true fan! As an Asimov’s subscriber, I always look forward to your work in upcoming issues. I’m delighted to read a female sf author, certainly, but I am especially impressed by your intriguing plots, suspenseful and vividly imagined worlds, and compelling characters. The character interactions are true and deeply emotional (I confess I often cry). Can’t wait for all the books to be available. Thank you for such amazing sf writing.

    • Thanks, Lisa. Where are you located? The books are all available, or should be, through one or the other publisher. If you’re in the US, and can’t get the books, let me know. Otherwise, you should be able to get all the ones I’ve written so far. 🙂 Thank you for the kind words!!!
