    Jerry, get back to work! We still need that 4th Janissaries book.

  2. J. Pulley says:

    Rest easy and work hard at being well, brother. Oh, yeah. Hillary Clinton will never be President.

    Dear Jerry, I have been a fan of your Chaos Manor writings since your first writing in Byte in 1980. Being 13 years old at that time. 😉

    Later, I started reading your books (together with Larry Niven), and became a great fan. Your writings gave me a lot of enjoyment, and a few important insights into the life, the universe and everything.

    I was sorry to read about your stroke. So I wanted to take this opportunity to wish you a great recovery, and hope that you will keep up the motivation to have your unique outlook in write your books. I hope I can enjoy them for some time to come.

    But I also hope that you will enjoy writing for some time to come. Don’t let the intended destination cloud your enjoyment of the ride!

    I’ve never had the pleasure of meeting you, Dr. but I got to spend a few moments with your partner in crime, Niven. I would have loved yo have met you as well.

    As one who is a stroke survivor myself – two in an afternoon but fairly minor – I can understand your feeling of frustration. My strokes fortunately did not hit in any morot areas – just speech center and sensorium. I still have bouts of anomic aphasia. All I can say is hang in there. It will get better. And for goodness sake, make sure the medicos figure out where/how the clot formed and do what’s necessary to prevent more!

    Now, When are you and that Niven fellow going to write a sequel to “Hammer”? The field could use your take on post apocalypse life. Of course you could also write about race relations in a sequel to “Footfall”.

    You, my good sir, are a treasure. I am glad you are still with us.

    The world would be a better place if we had more people like you in it.

    Sincerest wishes for your continued recovery and for the good health of you and all of your loved ones.

    Hope you are recovering as well as possible.
    Discovered your Falkenbergs Legion series a few months ago and having a really good time crunching through them all.
    Hope to one day be able to do a licensed game on the Codominium Universe 🙂
    Best wishes, Vic

    Have long loved your SF. Now love Chaos Manor. Amazed to find you went to Iowa. There is so much I missed while there.

    Nice to meet you Mr. Pournelle.


  11. John Graves says:

    A happy, healthy and prosperous 2017 to you and your loved ones. Thanks for your many years of great writing and advocacy that has inspired so many, including me. In the late 1970’s your work greatly influenced my thinking about technology, space, defense and economics. That helped me get form some clear career goals and I just retired from a 38 year long career in the tech sector. Your ideas helped me have a better life.
