:-) I hope so too. I am starting to acquire so much stuff that I think
it could be done. Although somehow I would feel more at home writing a
nontraditional novel like the _Kazar Dictionary_ than a traditional one.

Apropos good authors, I have recently discovered Alastair Reynolds.
_Revelation Space_ was quite good, with both hard sf, a fast storyline
and some interesting ideas. I'm reading his _Chasm City_ right now, and
it is very promising.
