A DM fan clued me in to this amusing post about my book "The Waking Nightmare" from the Diagnosis Murder message board on PAX, which I no longer frequent. I think after reading this you’ll understand why.
I’ve come across others who feel that
the reason Lee Goldberg portrays Steve so horribly is a personal attack
on Barry Van Dyke.
friend of mine bought the Waking Nightmare. I don’t know if she plans
on buying another one. Lee Goldberg has Mark performing a feat that
would be impossible at Mark Sloan’s age. Steve could have probably done
it with his training.
What also gets me mad is that Lee Goldberg
has no problem having Mark get hurt numerous times, Jack and Jesse
once, but when I asked him to hurt Steve. He said that was stupid!
heard Steve gets slightly hurt in this one. But the damage is done.
More and more I’m finding people who are fed up with the way Steve is
treated in Lee Goldberg’s DM books.

In deference to Betty, I’m going to hurt Steve in the next book. Any suggestions, folks, on how he should be injured or maimed?
