I would like to get a copy by Christmas for a friend of mine, I find the authors work to be exihilirating and quite informative... Would be even better if I could aquire a signed copy.

By june,

The soft cover version will probably not be out untill 2004. I have a signed copy of the hard cover but alas it is not for sale since it is the first book I helped with. And I have helped on Dougs new book Grave Goods. If you want some info on Doug feel free to contact me.

I just heard from Doug, Grave Goods is done and at the publishers. When I find out the release date I will post it.

I just wanted to say DP and LC are doing a great job. I have read all of their fiction books, some of them mulitiple times. My favorites will always be Relic and Reliquary. I just finished Still Life With Crows and it will go to the top of my list also. Keep up the great work!!!!

P.S. I can't wait for Brimstone!!!!

(WARNING: SPOILER concerning The Codex)

I finished The Codex--my first Preston book. It was a fun read. Nothing too surprising though, and that I find disappointing. I'm rather stumped how Tom & Sally got the Codex. Tom places the Codex on the bridge after Hauser threatens to kill the others; the four sons and father move towrd the end of the bridge; Hauser runs 100 feet to the container and Codex; Hauser burns and falls and the bridge burns and breaks apart. The canyon is so steep that it cannot be crossed, so he did not go down after it. Yet Tom and Sally have the Codex to form their foundation. Seems incomplete to me--did I miss a page?? Has anyone got a clue or was this truly a breakdown on the story line?

Appreciate any thoughts. Thanks

I'm coming in late on this thread (just found the list) but I'm really puzzled about the plot hole pointed out by haysys back in May.

I just read The Codex a couple of days ago and that really serious flub blew me out of the water. No matter how many times I went back and re-read the appropriate sections, there was absolutely no accounting for the appearance of the fabled Codex in the final scenes. As written, it should have gone down in flames.

Is there any comment -- anywhere -- by Mr. Preston about this?
