Comments: Thanks, Mr Masterton; I expected such an answer !
I have seen yesterday DREAMSCAPE, by Joseph Ruben: to much conventional for me, particularly if compared to your NIGHT WARRIORS series.
The post nuclear Washington in the dream of the president is insignificant compared to the romantical/historical vision of London by Isabel the Witch!

Comments: I have never heard of Joseph Campbell or his monomyth. It sounds suspiciously to me like the standard three-act model for almost all movies...and indeed all novels where a hero or heroine is facing an overwhelming threat.

I am inherently suspicious of people who try to rationalise everything into their own particular "myths". You would think that Mr Campbell could find something better to do with his life.

Comments: Dear Graham,

I have just read something about Joseph Campbell and his theory of the "monomyth". His main idea is that the different stages encountered by the hero are the same in all the mythologies. M. Campbell seems to be well known in Hollywood, and G. Lucas said that the STAR WARS series was partly inspired by this theory...
In your novels, there are recurrent stages, and some of them might be found in M. Campbell's scheme: for example the description of the ordinary life of the hero before he must face his destiny, the encounter with a mentor (Gandalf, Obi-Wan Kenobi... and doctor Snow !), or the agregation of a community around the hero to help him.
In your novels, even if the hero is an ordinary man he stays to be the hero: the mentor is a simple counsellor but only the hero can act to change his destiny.
Well, I haven't seen mention of M. Campbell in your interviews, and I just wonder if you knew (or not)his ideas while writing your first novels.

Thanks,

Christophe

Comments: My sincerest apologies to all those of you who were enthusiastic enough about SCARLET WIDOW to pledge support for its publication by Unbound. There have been some contractual problems which now means that they will not be publishing SCARLET WIDOW and are no longer seeking pledges. I have been assured by Unbound that all pledges will be immediately refunded. If you have any queries or experience any problems please send me a message asap to manitouman1@yahoo.com. I expect to be announcing a new publisher for SCARLET WIDOW shortly. Again, my apologies for the inconvenience and the general cod's-up.

Comments: Graham, I found you when a very lucky purchase was made from where I worked back in 2003 I believe. That book has been stuck in my head ever since. Spirit is a story that will never escape me. I was wondering if there's any chance of a hard copy? I tried to find a hardbook and found one, purchased it but it's in horrible shape! Any chance of somehow getting a reprint??

Comments: Thanks, Paul! Glad you're enjoying the Golden Oldies! As far as I know several more of my books will be recorded on audio and will be available soon.

It might seem strange, but I have never listened to one of them myself...I am always too busy writing the next one to reminisce about past adventures!
