Steve (Thumper) writers,
Having just finished my 4th or 5th reading of Decipher, and settling into Gene for maybe the 3rd time, I’ve just realised that on the 2nd and subsequent readings of each I’ve gone straight to the bibliography as a reminder of wonders to come. So, how the hell do you go about developing an idea for a book, and researching it to the nth degree that you can produce what (to me) are the most incredible collisions of fact and fiction? It’s stunning stuff, and I’m constantly scanning the interwebby thing for news of your next release. I’ve had to distill my Pavlou fixes by gumming through volumes and volumes of Neal Stephenson in the meantime – it’s always good fun telling one of his fans to pick up one of your books. Hope this isn’t too insulting, but I’ve sold them as “Neal Stephenson meets Mathew Reilly after the latter’s grown up a bit”.

Google translation tells me:
Dear Mr Pavlou, started to read your book “Code of Atlantis, and I want to express my opinion in regard to the stage you described, where the Russian workers allegedly otkopanogo eat mammoth, I assure you that in Russia, as described in chasnosti in Siberia, you people will not eat fossil animals, nor because of your erroneous perception that the Siberian workers – hungry savage, nor is due to the views of Western authors, that Russia bears walk along the streets in a cap-ushankah or even some kind of delusion etogo.Eto old and uninteresting, and I dare you to ask that in your works, you have more originals to otnsheniyu a simple description of the great Russian people.

Eric writes in with a link to a fantastic article by Cory Doctorow about getting your writing done.
These are three things I particularly identify with, but the whole piece is well worth checking out.
