I've been doing some research, and one of the authors I've been reading a lot of has some intriguing ideas I want to find out more about. In all the research I've done on the subject, including numerous books by that author, there is nothing else available about those ideas. So, I want to contact the author. How would I do this? I assume if I get in touch with the publisher they could forward the correspondence to the author. I think if the author wanted to respond, they could, and if they wanted me to flock off, the could just ignore me. Not sure though. What do you think?
