Happy Halloween to you too! Speaking of Halloween, I'm half way through Idlewild, and I think it's fantastic. I took a break from your dad's books for a change. :) I really am enjoying it, and plan on following up with Everfree and Edenborn. I hope all is well!


Nick, your dad was a hero to me any many others, but in my opinion you have truly distinguished yourself with these books; sometimes fiction can tell truths more effectively. I hope we see many more from you.

Happy bloggiversary and happy Halloween! Seems like it was just yesterday that I welcomed you to the blogosphere.


I'd wondered where you'd gone...Happy Halloween!


Hey, happy anniversary!

I've been so busy I haven't had much time to read, but I'm almost done with Edenborn and amazon tells me The Varieties of Scientific Experience should be arriving soon. (TWO Sagan books listed at my blog.) :)

Hope you had a fun Halloween, too.

Greetings, Nick!

I second the comments from some of the others. Your dad really inspired me with his work, and I'm looking forward to reading your books now that I know about them.

I wanted to share with you a link to an essay I wrote after reading The Demon Haunted World, crediting your father:


Hope your mom continues to feel better.
Take care,


Hello Nick,

I have just watched the Cosmos documentary. It was pure "magic".
I would like to thank you, since I can't do so to your father...
He was a giant of science.

I'm already on the last book - they're quite addictive! Hope all is well. :)

    "The story is dark and gripping. Numerous subplots and twists are heightened by a surprise climactic revelation. Character developments are complex. The portrayals of the dark side of mankind in these characters are chilling."
