Comments: Dear Graham Masterton,
I am writing to you because my father is a big fan of yours. He has over 40 of yours books! In two months he will celebrate his birthday. I'd like to give him the best present on Earth- your autograph! I'd send you one of these books and I'd love if you would put your signature on it. Is this possible?
I look forward to hearing from you soon.
Yours sincerely,
Caroline. ;)

Dear Graham,

I have seen in the net a vintage poster for an aerosol for the hair untitled: "AMERICA DISCOVERS THE DRY LOOK. The wet head is dead, long live the dry look"(funny!).
Was this for you a source of inspiration for the look of Singing Rock? If it is the case, I would be interested to know where you could have seen this poster(in a magazine, on a wall, in England, in the U.S.A...)

Thanks,

Christophe

Comments: My late wife was Polish, as you know. And we made many friends in Warsaw and Poznan when we first visited. So it didn't take long to get a good idea of what was going on there.

Comments: It's true that THE CHOSEN CHILD offers to us a fascinating way to travel inside the History of Poland, from the Middle Ages (the famous "Recondites") to the 1990s(the transition years).
Your dark portrait of Warsaw after the fall of communism is right, according to what I could have read about this period (the development of mafias, particularly in the great towns).
Is Jan Kaminski (this journalist who might have been killed because he denounced the corruption) was inspired by a real character?
I wonder what could have been your sources of information about these different kinds of gangsters and traffics (cars, drug...): newspapers articles, broadcasts of polish TV channels, testimony of some locals... or your direct observation of the people, particularly in the hotels' halls?

Thanks,

Christophe

Comments: Thanks, Krystian. I'm pleased you enjoyed it. I did get some criticism when it was first published in Poland because of the way it depicts Warsaw in 1989, when I first went there, but that was exactly how it was in those days. Now it's a really great city.

Comments: You sure will! I've just finished THE CHOSEN CHILD, such an interesting and great captured novel. I was amazed how the story unfolds; at the beginning I thought it would be a classic horror book but it has proved to be a brilliant combination of detective story and a horror genre. Historical background of a monster was very unconventional and that made the story even more indescribable. Well done, Graham!

Comments: That's a great initiative, Graham. I'm glad you're expanding your help to another serious problem. It's true, most people in Poland are either not aware of such problems or are not well informed. Many of the victims do not know where they can obtain help, it's very delicate matter. Thanks for your engagement, it means a lot to me, as it always has.
I'm currently reading THE CHOSEN CHILD. One of you best work. Can't wait to see you in Poland soon.
Best regards

Comments: I am now supporting a new program by
to help child prostitutes in Wroclaw.

Up until now I have been supporting Dom Dziecka the children's orphanage in Gorzec
which I visited last year, but I am also very moved by the efforts of the charity Sztukater to reach out to
underage prostitutes and abused children.

Because child prostitution is such a taboo subject, the children are often unaware that there are
places they can go to for refuge, for food and for medical treatment, and to be informed
of their rights. Many of them are unable to return home, and they need to know that there
are people who will care for them and make sure that they can sleep unmolested.

This program is going to be difficult and challenging, and it is not a subject that many people
in Poland will want to talk about, but next time I visit Poland and appear on Dzien Dobry I
intend to bring it up.

This is the link to Sztukater. It also gives the links to make donations if you wish to.

Comments: I was aware of these events, Christophe, but they did not inspire me to write THE MANITOU. That was mainly suggested to me by the impending arrival of our first child!

Comments: Dear Graham,

I have read with great interest all the informations you give in your interviews and forewords about the circumstances of the redaction of MANITOU...
I wonder if, at that time, you had heard about the occupation of Alcatraz (1969), the B.I.A. (1972) or Wounded Knee (1973),and if these events could have contribute to give you the idea of writing something about the revenge of the Amerindians !

Thanks,

Christophe
