I’m on record as saying I don’t believe in sequels. Yet here I am, finishing the third Odd Thomas novel, working on the third in the Frankenstein series, contemplating a fourth round with Odd, and promising a third Chris Snow. I can’t write sequels to everything. When I finished LIFE EXPECTANCY, I wanted to spend more time with the characters, but it seemed that to follow little Rowena on her five special days would require the book to be science fiction if the first of her days, like her father’s special days, came in her twentieth year. Then I realized all five special days could come in Rowena’s first couple of years, which lets the book take place in our time. So it has been a thought in the back of my mind. But the past few years have brought me more and better ideas than I’ve ever had before, and I think it’s less–not more–likely that I’ll do any sequels other than the third Chris Snow and, possibly, other Odd Thomas titles. Thanks for caring, Rafael. May you always have cake, and may you never be troubled by angry clowns.
