As some of you may know, I'm a big fan of Peter David's work. Even as I type this, I know that elyon will be doing his mock genuflection as he reads it :)

Anyway, I've just been glancing at his website:

A couple of things of note there - firstly, I was quite amused by the Hulk entry at the start. Secondly, when I first looked at the site a month ago, there was an entry that contained Buffy spoilers (an episode that had been shown in the USA, but not over here yet). Normally I'd get a bit irritable about that kind of thing, but in this case that was tempered by the great respect that I have for the man, so I posted a brief message to the relevant mailing list:

"Just a quick heads-up to people who haven't seen the latest episodes of
Buffy yet (e.g. people in the UK) - today's article at www.peterdavid.net
includes a fairly major spoiler in the first paragraph. Best avoid the site
for a while if you're sensitive to such things..."

Looking down the list at the older entries, there's one from the 23rd May that also has Buffy stuff, but this contains a spoiler warning at the start. Since I was the only person on the list who commented on it, I figure it's reasonable to assume that this is a response to my feedback, which is pretty cool. It's not the first time this has happened - I've swapped emails with him a couple of times before. Still, it's always a buzz when I think "I read what he writes, and now he reads what I write!" Well, it made me happy anyway...

The Trek BBS - Trek Literature forum has about 1/2 dozen writers and a couple of editors who post on it very frequently. You often get really interesting threads popping up when the new press releases come up and they're being badgered for more information.

Thanks for that - I've now registered, so you may see my comments popping up. Of course, at the moment I'm still "cadet" - I've got a way to go before I make Lt Cmdr like you :)
