Good after afternoon, Mr. Asher!
I suspect you have more than enough ‘who reads my books’ entries at this point, but I’ll toss mine in for fun.
I am a lifelong SF/Fantasy reader who came across your books completely by accident. My wife was going to the library, and I asked her to get me a book… anything science-fiction. She came back with Gridlinked and the rest is history.
I am a 50-year-old film and theatrical composer and songwriter from the US who hopes to someday see (and compose music for) a feature-length film or Netflix / Amazon series set in The Polity.
Thank you for taking the time to reach our to your fans!
