My first post

My name is Ted Judson (or Theodore Judson, which is how my editors put my name on my books). I am posting this blog at the suggestion of my agent, who wants me to have direct contact with the very few people who have read any of my work. I am best known as a sci-fi author (Fitzpatrick's War and Peter Black's Daughter, the latter of which will be published by Pyr Books this spring of 2007), although I aspire to publish other books, including the parody of a thriller my agent is currently attempting to place.
In the real world I am a school teacher in the middle of Wyoming, the place in which I was born. My father was a farmer, and I lacked the imagination and the means to get more than fifty miles from the old home town.
If, by rare coincidence, anyone who has any interest in my novels should actually see this, I would appreciate hearing from you.

Lord how I wish I found this earlier.

Ted, I cannot tell you how much I have enjoyed Tom Wedderburn and Fitzpatricks War.

I had been searching for a long time for information about Tri Ogalala, and sadly tonight was my first success, nearly a year after your last post on this blog, so I hope you will see this.

I just want to say thanks for the hours of enjoyment your books have given me.

I would like to echo Oliver here and thank you for the many hours of enjoyment your books have given me. I have read every one of your books and loved them all.(Tom Wedderburn's Life was rather hard to find though, a large part of the problem was that some sites most conspicuously Amazon.ca had unfortunately misspelled the title)! But I acquired it eventually and it was well worth the wait. I hope that you will write Tri Ogalala someday as I what glimpses we got of the early history of the Yukon's to be fascinating.

Count me among your many fans.

A friend suggested "Fitz..." to me and I have since bought it for and forced many otherwise unoffending humans of my acquaintance to read it.

An excellent book. Bravo!

I'd love to write you an e-mail. Is that possible?

I am sane. Stable. Married. Non-weird in the usual ways. :)

I have done searches for you before and found zilcho. So happy to have found this!

Peace to you.

I'm at samuel AT sdsmith DOT net.

I wish I had seen this years ago. And I wish that you had not stopped posting. I wish you did not take such a dim view of your success. A book should be considered successful not when it is instantly profitable, but when it it remains relevant over generations.

Ted, I wish I had found your blog earlier, I absolutely loved Tom Wedderburn's Life and Fitzpatrick's War. I have read them and reread them so many times I can't tell you how worn the cover is. If by any chance you still check this email me at nickpallatta@optonline.net, I'd love to talk.

Ted, I've been waiting nearly 10 years for Tri Ogalala. Does this work exist, either in real life or just in your mind? When you open the door a crack at an alternate history that looks everyday more like the real thing, people will want to see it.

Hello from 2016, still hoping that you are reading this and plan on writing more. Out of all of your books Fitzpatrick's war was my favorite. Keep up the writing as we are still waiting for more.
