Aha! You thought your readers would think the other passenger was Mary, didn't you? You thought you'd trick us. But I knew! I figured out who it was almost from the start.
I don't think I've read anything like this off the Science Fiction racks of our local book boutique. It's different in two ways, aside from being a riveting tale: first, as best as I can tell, all the events and such comply with the known laws of physics. Secondly, it's terribly erotic. Given a choice I do like a bit of well-crafted, plain-spoken eroticism.
I just wanted to make sure that you know you have at least one repeat reader out there. Do you have a recommendation for another good read?
I answered him:
Dear Sean; if you like passage novels, complete with all the above features you mention, you might try Blue Water Blues.
Thank you for writing a fine romantic story, although I don't think I'll be letting my young teenagers read it. Good intrigue, good double-dealing, good tension, amazing ending. I will be reading more of your work.
