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.”
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.”
