To be fair to Ringo, he honestly hates the Paladin of Shadows series, can't understand why anyone likes it, thinks the main character is unhealthy (to say the least), only wrote it because it got jammed in his brain and wouldn't let him write anything else, only published it under his real name because he had bills to pay, and seriously considered ending the series with the lead being found frozen to death in a wheel-well and everything turning out to be his dying hallucinations.
"John, enough with the DMPC. Yes, it's very tragic that his wife died, boo hoo. But seriously, an ex-military guy who went into computers? Does that sound familiar to everyone else? And the nerdy Tom Sunday kid has had lots of sex, and the cheerleader is a virgin? Really? And, seriously, these suits are *completely* overengineered. If I'm reading the stats right, one of these could survive a point-blank nuclear blast. And what's with the Posleen? They're basically just orcs mixed with centaurs. I like how the space-elves are screwing everyone over, but why is the DMPC one of the few people to figure it out? And why are his daughters so messed up? Oh, and don't even get me started on the Nazis. Seriously? Revived Nazis?"
