Comments: Thanks. Jim. I think the nearest I am going to get is Kansas City and I have not yet had confirmation of that. But maybe I can fly there via Atlanta!

Comments: William lived to a reasonable old age so my driving couldn't have been that bad. I have to admit that I did total two Mustangs in the 1980s but that particular model (the Ghia II) was very nose-heavy with a 4.5-litre engine in the front like a brick in a sock and had a tendency to do 360-degree turns if you braked too hard on a wet day.

Once I graduated to larger cars like Lincoln Continentals and Cadillac Fleetwoods I drove more sedately, although I have to say for all of its size the Lincoln Continental Mk III with its 7.5-litre engine went like a sheepdog off a shovel.

Comments: Given all the things Mr Burroughs must have encountered during his life, your driving must have been really something to put him in fear for his safety!

Incidentally, did you see the depiction of WB in the film Kill Your Darlings? I was expecting it to be a bit of a pastiche, but I got the feeling it was pretty good (although I never met him, of course). The voice seemed just right, anyway.

Comments: I have been amused to have it pointed out to me (after 47 years!) that William Burroughs was scared of my driving.
In his collected letters "Rub Out The Words 1959 - 74" he writes to a friend on September 7, 1967: "Some one named Graham Masterton with whom I corresponded for years is now working for Mayfair which is an English version of Playboy. They have taken my academy articles and want me to do a monthly byline. Next issue I am doing a job on Scientology. We are going down to Saint Hill (the Sceintology headquarters) on Sunday in the best tradition of obnoxious journalism."
I rented a Vauxhall Cresta for that journey from London to East Grinstead and drove it myself.
On October 1, 1967, William wrote to the same friend: "The trip to Saint Hill was amusing though I thought we would never arrive in one piece, such driving 80 miles an hour passing on hills and curves, Antony Balch taking movies from the back seat."
That movie still exists somewhere although I don't know where since Antony passed away years ago. I would love to see William sitting terrified in the front passenger seat! I do remember him telling me to ease off the gas a couple of times.

Comments: Graham, have you ever wondered if flood of evil that's been described in your horror novels may lead to increase aggressive behavior in humans? Or would you rather believe, that it contributes to reduction the level of aggression by experiencing it on the pages of your books instead of in real life?

Comments: THE PLAGUE OF THE MANITOU (due out in May 2015) bears an uncanny similarity to the Ebola crisis. Even the symptoms are similar.

Same thing happened with DROUGHT. I first pitched it 15 years ago but had to shelve it because I had too many other commissions to complete. As soon as I actually wrote it, though, there was a real drought in California.

World of Weird!

Comments: Sorry to hear that my former editor Paul Sidey has passed away at the age of 71. He was one of that generation of British publishers when writing and publishing books was friendly and boozy and fun, before the conglomerates took over. He encouraged my late wife Wiescka to write her epic set in the champagne district of France A TASTE OF HEAVEN. In the end we wrote it together because it required drinking an awful lot of champagne for research.

Comments: That's a great news, Graham! Although I have several of your books signed, and almost all of those that have been put on auction, I think that support children in need is something very noble and it doesn't have a price. I have placed bid on two books. Many thanks to you as well as for your dedication to the cause!
