On your last podcast you talked about the "controversy" of picking a weirder, lesser known title like "The Einstein Intersection" over something more well known, like "Nova." But those weird picks, informed by the personal tastes of you two, are so much more interesting than standard picks that I might come across just by googling "top Delaney novels." The weirder picks you guys do don't always sync up exactly with my tastes, but they're always interesting, and they're often something I never would have had the pleasure of coming across on my own.

I personally am loving the weird beauty of The Einstein intersection, and I thought it a good idea to let you guys know that not everyone hates the decision to sometimes go off the beaten path.
