Re: OT: Announcing ONLY SUPERHUMAN, my first original novel!

Good point actually, I should have recalled e.g. the boxing discussion not so long ago . It's terribly late over here ...

Edit: Just found this chuckle-worthy description in a Goodreads review: "There's also a fair amount of sex and nudity in the book. None of it overtly graphic in its description, but what it may lack in description, it makes up for in quantity."

^ Maybe we should put that quote on the paperback edition!

So, Mr. Bennett, how does it feel to be a published author in your own right, with a hardcover original work to your name?

^Ask me again when we see how well it sells...

It is certainly more fulfilling to have a published novel that's purely mine, especially one I've been working on for more than half my life. And it's awesome to have a hardcover.

Re: OT: Announcing ONLY SUPERHUMAN, my first original novel!

I did my bit.

Just finished it. Seems to belong on the same shelf with The Moon is a Harsh Mistress, which I read in high school.

To Mr. Cox:

May we please have more from this author?

After yet another apparently spontaneous sex scene, I wondered "Geez, don't these people do anything about birth control or STI's?"

Then I realized the answer.

"There's probably a mod for that."

There are probably injections for long-term contraception, much as Sisko and Kasidy alluded to late in DS9. And there are most likely immunizations or easy treatments for STDs (or whatever they're calling them now). But yes, there are mods for enhanced immune systems, biological or nanotech (or a mix of both).

Re: OT: Announcing ONLY SUPERHUMAN, my first original novel!

I downloaded this to my Kindle last night and can't wait to get around to reading it. Congratulations Christopher! The sample alone met my expectations about this book.

Re: OT: Announcing ONLY SUPERHUMAN, my first original novel!

Christopher, I'm not one to comment on a book until I finish reading it, but with the upper respiratory gunk I got going on right now, I'm reading in shorter increments than usual. With that said, I wanted to give you some early feedback. I've gotten to Chapter 5 and I'm really enjoying it so far.

Re: OT: Announcing ONLY SUPERHUMAN, my first original novel!

I'm hoping to start tonight when I get myself into bed. I was wondering, any plans for annotations?

I'm hoping to get to that soon, but I have other things on my plate right now.

Re: OT: Announcing ONLY SUPERHUMAN, my first original novel!

I just checked out the copy that I got my library to purchase, and I'm enjoying it very much so far. By the way, I just noticed that it received a starred review and was listed as the "Debut of the Month" in the October 15th issue of Library Journal. Congratulations on that, and hopefully that will help sales.

Thanks for the alert! I hadn't seen that review yet.
