Post subject:  Re: David R Palmer MY error see explanation

It was not a direct posting . It was from AMAZON. It was posted by member John Black on May 2, 2008 on the 13th page of this topic.
I guess that's why I am a WEB HUNTER :mrgreen: . But So far No luck :roll: at all the usual places.

Although RAH is almost G*D like to me I do love alot of other authors also, and Palmer ranked very higfh with only 2 published works ii COULD account for. We won't talk about waiting time for new sequels like RIVERWORLD :D or CHTORR :cry:
I am lucky by the time I discovered RAH he was pumping out stuff faster than I coul get it and read it. He Really SPOILED ME.
btw IS SPIDER ROBINSON really his son :mrgreen: . I HAVE OFTEN WONDERED. I know David Gerrold is his younger brother. :lol:

It ran for three issues starting in July/Aug '08. I've only been able to find Sept and Oct (direct from the magazine) one is parting with that first one yet.

Never reprinted (yet).

Re: Fiction related to Heinlein's work by theme

David R. Palmer's "Emergence" reads to me to be very like a Heinlein story. I believe I expressed this in the old Nitro. Its out of print but I believe that its being optioned as a movie so it should come back into print soon. Should be easily locatable on the 2nd hand market.

The following was note was written by Mr. Palmer recently on Amazon:

Rip Van Palmer resurfaces..., April 4, 2008
By David R. Palmer (Florida) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Emergence (Mass Market Paperback)
Hi, people. I hope the webmaster's rules permit this.

First, thanks for your enduring loyalty. It's been 25 years since my last book.

Some of you will be pleased to learn that "Tracking," the sequel to "Emergence," is being serialized in three parts by Analog SF magazine, commencing with the July/August double issue, due out toward the end of this month. Inchoate talk are also underway with Wormhole Press to bring "Tracking" out as a hardcover and paperback sometime next year.

Secondly, I've also completed "Spcial Education" (dunno if that'll show up properly in HTML; it's "special," with a long-vowel diacritical bar over the "e," as in "species"), sequel to "Threshold."

Thirdly, I just finished "Schrödinger's Frisbee," an unrelated SF novel about a boy and his dog, his girlfriend -- and alien abduction.

And finally, a movie option has been sold for "Emergence"; a screenplay now exists. The efforts of anyone who wishes to join me in breath-holding and finger-crossing will be appreciated.

Wormhole Press is equally interested in them, and in rereleasing "Emergence" and "Threshold." Check back here occasionally on; coerce your local booksellers. Tell two friends; ask them to tell two friends, etc. Repeat this to a depth of 20 conversations and you've alerted over a million friends.

Thanks again for your enthusiasm and patience -- and for the kind thoughts embodied in the occasional, somewhat premature eulogies I've read here and on other websites.

Very truly,

David R. Palmer

Yes, I found Emergence to be quite Heinleinesque, a good read and a memorable protagonist. The sequel, not so. It was too chaotic and trying to outdo the first book's energy.

:mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: Sound the trumpets HURRAH!!HURRAH My QUEST has ended after 25 years! I have found the lost copies of David R Palmer's series emergence sequel. DELL has new copies for sale of the 2 & 3 issues. BUT I couldn't wait for their return email. Guess what? I found the 1 &2 issues at a used book dealer, and 3 at another dealer. Total cost less than $20.00
Now all that remains is for David Gerrold to publish the final books of the CHTORR series Then I will be COMPLETE. :D
