firstname.lastname@example.org Comments: Hi Tammy, pleased you enjoyed your trip to Arizona. I havenít yet read TENGU myself. It's on my ever-expanding "got-to-read books before I get old" list. lol. Hopefully, though, I'll get to read it before they get round to turning it into a movie. I don't know about you but I prefer it that way. I think it spoils the book if you see the movie first. Dave.

email@example.com Comments: Hi Dave
Been offline for a few days. Had a great time in Arizona-now back to the real world. I am really enjoying TENGU. I didnt get a chance to read as much over the weekend as I had hoped, so am only about 1/2 through. I loved that opening scene. When do you think they will make it a movie??? I'll be first in line to buy my ticket. Take care. Peace Tammy

I guess I did! :-) As for winning the competition, well, I've won a first edition of the THE HORROR WRITER magazine and a gift token to spend at Barnes and Noble - though living here in the UK, I'll probably have difficulty using the latter.

email@example.com Comments: Hi Ron, Iím delighted to learn that youíre enjoying A GIFT TO DIE FOR. Like you, I especially enjoy a book thatís based in the North East of England. This is a fantastic area (even if it is too cold for my liking!), and Iíll plug it unmercifully in my books whenever the opportunity arises. :-) Dave.

firstname.lastname@example.org Comments: Tammy, by an amazing coincidence one of our news channels has just shown a few brief clips of Julian. It looks bad, but apparently fog is forecast for the weekend and theyíre hoping this will help put at end to the fires. Letís hope so! On the book front, Iíve never read TENGU so Iíll be interested to hear what you make of it. As for me, well Iíve always been a sucker for anything by Dean Koontz, and STRANGERS is a particular favourite of mine. I also love all of Stephen Kingís earlier work. As for British horror writers, apart from Grahamís work I also like pretty-much anything by James Herbert, such as í48, CREED, DOMAIN, and THE MAGIC COTTAGE. Enjoy your trip to Phoenix! Dave.

email@example.com Comments: Hello-thanks to Dave & Jamie for your kind thoughts & prayers. I have a few friends whose homes were burned to the ground. It is very sad. My family is all safe & the fire appears to be focused mostly in the mountain area east of me (Julian) The fire crews are doing their best to save our little mountain village. Dave-funny you should ask about TENGU. I am flying to Phoenix Arizona on friday morning for some workshops. I plan on taking TENGU with me. I'll let you know how I like it. Any other reading suggestions for me?? I am rereading the HOT BLOOD series-I call it mindless horror, short stories with a horrific twist. Easy reading for me. Well gotta go for now-take care all-peace-Tammy

firstname.lastname@example.org Comments: Tammy, youíve obviously had a lucky escape. I canít even begin to imagine how devastating it must be to lose your home and all your worldly possessions like that, gone in minutes. I saw Arnie briefly on the news a little earlier saying he was off to Washington to try and get some extra funding for this tragedy. Letís hope heís successful and that Julian (and the surrounding wildlife) manages to escape the worst of the devastation. And most importantly Ė that the wind drops and it rains. Meanwhile, on a much, much lighter note, have you read Grahamís TENGU yet? Best wishes to your family. Dave.

email@example.com Comments: It's all so desperately sad, Tammy. We were all watching the TV here last night and we couldnt believe what we were seeing. Hopefully the worst is over. As Dave says, we're keeping our fingers crossed for you. Jamie.

firstname.lastname@example.org Comments: Thanks, Dave, for your kind words. I am very grateful that my family is all safe. Although, I have 2 very close friends whose homes were burned to the ground. The fires came within a few miles of my home, but is now contained in this area. We were packing & ready to evacuate on a moments notice. It is so hard to decide what to take & what can be left behind. Of course you take your family & important documents. But I have so much "stuff" that is important to me, where do you draw the line when there is limited space? I am glad that I didnt have to make that decision. I am so glad we were able to go to Julian last week. We spend an afternoon in the Cuyamaca mountains near Lake Cuyamaca-that area is now 90% burned to the ground. Julian has been evacuated & the fire crews are doing their best to save our historical village. The little "trinkets" that I purchased last week mean so much more to me now. The whole situation is very sad & tragic. The air quality is very poor, so we are staying inside & watching lots of movies & the news in between. The schools are closed til next week. Yeah, a pretty sad situation. Thanks again for your thoughts & prayers. Take care-Peace, Tammy
