No, but we (the Centennial Cinque) have a great story about it.

"World's only copy of a collaborative ms between two sf titans goes missing at a convention. Well-intended attempts to return it to its frantic owner fail. Hijinks and chaos ensue."

:)


Yeah, would you like to know what UPS overnight costs to Palatine? I gave my word.

Btw, the first chapter of "The Black Hole War" opens with a quote from Heinlein, using "grok" as the opening gambit for discussing the world of quantum physics...

It does. It also continues with one of the better written stories (fiction or non-fiction) I've read in the last ten years. I'm currently on the final third of it and enjoying it tremendously. Leonard Susskind is an engaging writer as well as a rather fun lecturer. (I've heard him speak on a couple of occasions.) Recommended.
