Congratulations. Nice to have a thumbs up from Neil Gaiman on the cover as well!

I've read the trilogy. Enjoyed it--particularly Idlewild. :)

Anything new in the works?

Hi Nick,

While at the library recently, I stumbled upon the audio book versions of your novels Idlewild and Edenborn. I'm so glad I picked them up; tonight I finished listening to Idlewild, and I'm currently converting the Edenborn CDs to iPod's Audiobook format so I can begin listening to the book tonight. (I'll delete the iPod files after I listen to them.) Idlewild was fantastic and I can't wait to listen to Edenborn.

(By the way, they picked a wonderful reader, that Clayton Barclay Jones. Great voice for Halloween.)

Hey Nick... working hard?


BTW I've heard that recording on the Voyager craft! That's your voice? Radical...I have a 'Net radio station called VoyagerRadio (at VoyagerRadio.com), and it was inspired by -- what else? -- the Voyager mission, which I'm somewhat fascinated with. To think that they are farther out there than any other human-made objects...


Hey Nick I love your books man , you shot yourself up to being my favorite author before I got half way thru your first book.

Are you planning on continuing the idlewild story line in any way shape or form I have to know 4th book anything? <3 hal
