Anatopsis is the first novel I ever wrote. I started it more than 20 years ago, and my goal, at the time, was just to see if I could finish it. The first version took me 5 years to finish. It was over 600 pages long and, by any measure of literature, unpublishable. So it took another 5 years before I had anything I could send out, and 10 more years before I could get someone to publish it.
Now I have the joy of seeing my work in print. And it’s only taken me 5 years (not 10) to finish my second novel, so with any luck, that one will be in the bookstores in a lot less than 20 years. (Fingers crossed!)
I hope you enjoy Anatopsis. Please feel free to email me if you have any comments or questions.
