Ken asked Rick Gualtieri:

Tried to incorporate this in the previous question but apparently made it too long. Outside of expected author venues (book signings, conventions, etc..) have you been recognized and approached by fans?

Rick Gualtieri I seem to "suffer" from this bizarre six degrees of Kevin Bacon thing, in that tons of my friends have met folks who have read my stuff, but I never seem to just run into people on the street.

More than once I've gotten a call from a RL friend who said something like, "I was talking to so-and-so and the subject of books came up and they started talking about this series they liked and then they mentioned your name and I was like 'I know that guy'."

Weird, but cool.
