Yes, Stephen King, who isn't even in my top 10 authors, is somehow my second most read author, right now at 19. Card shall pass him soon.

Koontz and Card are the only two authors who can actually change my worldview after reading their books.

OK, Chris and WW, I'm dying to know -- do you think there will be a sequel to Empire?

I've been perusing the Hatrack River Forums lately, and they all seem to know that there will be a sequel. They are a pretty smart bunch, so I would trust them. He's been writing Ender books for the past twenty years though, so who knows when he'll actually write it.

Despite WW's excitement in wanting to read this book at first, he seems to have forgotten of it's existence.

While waiting for the next book, you can start the Ender series, Masha.

I take it you've never read Ayn Rand. I no longer agree with all of her philosophy, but it's safe to say her books were life changing for me.

I've heard quite a bit about her, and I think I've heard her influences on Koontz. I was thinking about reading her books, but I'm just not sure. Are her books fun to read? Or is it non-fiction boringness?
