Way back when, the Green Man Review did a nice review of my first book, Digital Knight. I don't remember seeing any reviews on Green Man of any of my subsequent books -- did I miss them or did they just not get reviewed for whatever reason?

Why Digital Knight was your only book reviewed

(Link)
The most likely reason that we never reviewed any other books by you after Digital Knight was that they were never sent for review as Baen Books has never sent us anything for review. Why this is so is a mystery that quite frankly is not worth our time to solve has we have far more books come in for review that even Michael could possibly handle and is one of our top producing reviewers! And I assume that Michael got the copy of Digital Knight he review by buying it or at a con as a comp copy.

You can always send Michael your books directly.

Like Cat said, we've never had much luck getting review copies out of Baen over the years. Many of the books I've reviewed have been purchaed out of pocket and reviewed out of sheer love; for every book I get from a publisher, there's at least 2 or 3 which I've stumbled across on my own at one point or another. I suppose Baen's success with Baen's Bar and Webscriptions means they don't feel the need to get physical hard copies out there as much.

Add in my local stores having something of a dodgy track record when it comes to carrying Baen and Tor books when they first come out, and it's been easy for me to miss things, or be forced to choose between something that's just come out, or something that's been on the shelves elsewhere for months or a year. It's a rough decision to make. But I'll go check my email now...

It's an excellent series. I frankly love how well thought-out the setting is. I'm the sort to ask "but what about-" and Barant consistently answers those questions throughout the course of the story.

And as a comic geek, I appreciated the metaphysical exploration of comic books as items of power in the second book.
