I did answer, but I'm not sure where it went :). The characters did joke around about the universe seeming like a mob enforcer in the SF story about the CPC, but they didn't truly believe the universe was cognizant if the conjecture were true, but rather following the rules of the system, as you suggest.(less)

VERACITY is now available!

Hi, I just wanted to announce that my new novel, VERACITY, is now available on Kindle (the paperback will follow in a few days, and the Audible edition in a few months). If any of your friends enjoy my novels --or even if they don't, actually :) -- I'd be grateful for your help spreading the word. If you do end up reading Veracity, I hope that you will enjoy it. Thanks! Doug

“T.S. Elliot: “And the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started, and know the place for the first time.”

“The universe was infinite, and there were most likely an infinite number of universes. To sit on one tiny planet in an ocean of infinite infinities and believe you understood anything about the true nature of existence and reality was absurd.”
Douglas E. Richards, Wired

“Unless you truly believed in something to the deepest depth of your being, as did Delamater, all men were whores in the end. There was an old joke that had always struck Delamater as defining of the human species. A man asks a woman if she would sleep with him for ten million dollars. She agrees. He then asks if she would sleep with him for a dollar. She is aghast. “What kind of woman do you take me for?” she asks. To that, the man responds, “We have established what you are, madam. Now we’re just haggling over the price.”

Douglas Richards Hi. I am a pathetically poor user of Goodreads, and I have no idea what I'm doing. The sequel to my book, WIRED, is now out, and I'm trying hard to find ways to alert WIRED readers that it is available. Since it became a NY Times & USA Today bestseller, I've been inundated with people writing me asking about a sequel, and I told everyone I would let them know, but I'm a poor organizer and I didn't keep track of who contacted me as well as I thought I had. Anyway, if anyone out there ever sees this, and you know someone who has read WIRED, please let them know. Thanks! All the best, Doug.

P.S. and if my attempts to alert readers are working better than I think, and you've already seen something about this through another channel, sorry to be such a pest.
