Comment on Paradox

  1. WOW. This is so awesome! For a series set in academia, we don't get to see a lot of the academic side in the novels, so I LOVED this glimpse at all the different papers that come out of their research experiences. I really liked that prompt when I saw it, and hoped someone would write for it—and this is even better than I hoped for!

    Some of my favorite parts: Colin & Polly writing a chapter from Michael Davies' notes; Badri's contribution (I love Badri!); the tributes to Mary Ahrens and Montoya and Basingame; your incorporation of a real-life academic quote at the end; and just the way Colin's voice keeps moving back and forth from academic detachment to personal involvement throughout his writing.

    I just wish we got to see Colin's "rambling and indulgent letter". Okay, actually I wish it were possible to read every single one of these essays. If they were half so good as this marvelous introduction, they would be well worth reading.

      Thank you! (And good lord, I didn't mean to take half a year to respond to a comment - sorry about that!) I'm so glad you liked it and that the pseudo-academicness worked for you. I do also rather wish I were able to write (or better yet, commission other people to write!) the entire volume, because that would be brilliant fun, but alas, my actual PhD thesis is a jealous mistress. Ah well. Thanks again!
