I'm definitely planning to finish the trilogy at some point in the future. Currently, I'm writing short stories, a weekly series for DC Comics called Earth 2: World's End, and a couple screenplays. But I'm cooking on a third ROBO book, so please don't despair. :)(less)

In Robopocalypse, I drew on everything I learned while earning a PhD in robotics to try and scare the socks off anybody who dared to read the novel. :)(less)

Matty I finally finished your book Robopocalypse. Very entertaining but did leave me wanting wanted a tad bit more. Maybe an epilogue or even a sequel although a sequel might be overkill. Scratch that, don't write a sequel.

Since receiving this book, I frankly didn't know you existed but now can't wait to get out and read the rest of your stuff! Good job mate, you got yourself a new fan :)
