An Email from Amazon

Computers and the Internet are a part of my daily life, but sometimes I wonder…

A few days ago I got an email from Amazon.com asking, “Are you looking for something in our Science Fiction & Fantasy books department?  If so, you might be interested in these items.”

Email from Amazon.com

The first book on the list was my debut novel, Titan Encounter.  At first I laughed that the company would recommend my own book to me.  Then I realized that this email was most likely created by a computer program that monitored my browsing. and thought, well, Titan Encounter is actually the perfect novel for my tastes. 

“Thanks for the email Amazon, but I already have a copy.  However, please send similar recommendations to thousands of other science fiction fans.”
