Acknowledgments

This manuscript went through many phases. Those who made sure the best side ended up being illuminated include: [The "many phases" bit is a reference to the planet Face of God in the novel, whose phases are a motif in the book.]

  • Ted Bleaney [high-school friend and avid SF reader, after whom the Quintaglio priest Det-Yenalb is named]
  • Carolyn Clink [my wife]
  • David Livingstone Clink [my brother-in-law]
  • Richard Curtis [the literary agent who sold this book to Ace]
  • Richard Gotlib [high-school friend, now a lawyer, co-founder with me of our high-school SF club NASFA, after whom the series main character Afsan is named; read and commented on the book in manuscript]
  • Terence M. Green [Toronto SF writer; read and commented on the book in manuscript]
  • Peter Heck [my editor at Ace; he left editing to begin a successful career as a mystery writer]
  • Laurie Lupton [Rick Gotlib's then-girlfriend who read and commented on the book in manuscript]
  • Alan B. Sawyer [my brother; read and commented on the book in manuscript, and suggested the title for the book: Far-Seer]
  • Andrew Weiner [Toronto SF writer; read and commented on the book in manuscript]

I bow concession to them all.

["Bowing concession" is the traditional Quintaglio gesture of respect.]
