I was scanning Google Book Search (try it!) and discovered that Peter Watts drops my name in the credits of his latest novel ("Behemoth: Seppuku," page 291).

Nice birthday surprise -- and also, possibly, the Cosmos' way of telling me to WRITE MORE SCIENCE FICTION.

(In the meantime, Google allows you to read "After the Martian Apocalypse" in its entirety.)

Here's some birthday advice:

They make multi-million dollar movies based on sci-fi books and stories all the time.

They don't do that with UFO books (the odd exception proving the rule).

You do the math, and draw your own conclusion$...

Well-taken!

BTW, I wouldn't be surprised to see Watts' "Rifters" novels adapted for the screen. They're damned good.

WMB,

I'd like to go both directions, fate permitting.
