I did not finish it because 1. too much repetition already from the first three and 2. very hard to write about something way smarter than yourself.

I think that trilogy is my best stuff, I'm kind of afraid of ruining it, actually :)

If I have another decade of life left I may shoot for another trilogy in that story line.

I take it you would rather read a serial trilogy rather than a concurrent one, based upon your comments on the first trilogy.

Thanks very much for reading and reviewing.(less)

The Celaran Solution is the 9th book, it's about half done. In the meantime if you want something to read, The Created is set in the same universe as the PIT series so I recommend that one.
