Comments: Jeani Rector's September HorrorZine is now online and includes some Graham Masterton poetry. I have always believed that writers should write poetry since it is a very intense discipline and can enormously improve the rhythm of their prose and their choice of accurate words.

Comments: I think you have hit the nail on the head, Christophe. It is a long time since I wrote those two novels and political times have obviously changed, but I still like to believe that politicians hide immense untruths from us, and that the world isn't what it seems to be at all. Perhaps I should write a new one about a seecret deal between the Pope and Isil.

Comments: Dear Graham,

IKON and SACRIFICE are two brilliant fantasmagories about geopolitic plots and state lies, in relation with Cold War... even if the purpose of the first novel is to revisit a historical background (more funny) although the purpose of the second is to make a historical anticipation (more serious and...risked!)
If I had to resume in a few words the main theme of these two novels, I would say for IKON "historical realities and people are not exactly what they seem to be" and for SACRIFICE " behind official policies are sometimes hidden shameful historical targets..."
Well,I hope you could confirm I am right, or complete these first reflections...
In SACRIFICE, the portrait of an England torn between her apparent interest for the United States and her historical and geographical proximity with western Europe is interesting and very up to date (the future referendum promised by D. Cameron about the question of staying or leaving the European Union).

Thanks

Comments: Dear Graham,

I am now in SACRIFICE... well, I must express my stupefaction: those Soviet officers of "Operation Byliny" seem to think that french army is in 1982 the same it was in Hastings... have they forgotten that France is a nuclear power since 1960?
Here is a funny quote by general De Gaulle: "Dans 10 ans, nous aurons de quoi tuer 80 M de Russes. Eh bien je crois qu'on n'attaque pas volontiers des gens qui ont de quoi tuer 80 M de Russes, meme si on a soi-meme de quoi tuer 800 millions de Français, à supposer qu'il y eut 800 millions de Français".

Comments: I have been having difficulty getting any books published in France, Christophe, let alone IKON, One minute I was the Golden Boy, and then suddenly they didn't want to know. However, my agents are working hard on this, and I am very much hoping to make a return to the French literary scene before too long! (Including IKON!)

Comments: Dear Graham,

This message to say IKON is great !
It appears to me like a brilliant parody of maccarthysm's paranoia about a communism plot in the U.S.A., as THE SWEETMAN'S CURVE was a parody of maccarthysm policy against people both suspected of communist sympathies and with a real influence on the society (the blacklist of Hollywood, Chaplin, Losey...).
IKON is a funny way to revisit a large period of Cold War, from the Cuban affair (and the death of Marilyn Monroe !)until the SALT negociations...
I wonder if the choice of the synopsis, the States in danger of becoming a "popular democracy", like Poland or Tchecoslovakia (even if at a very lower speed!), COULD HAVE BEEN SUGGESTED BY DISCUSSONS WITH WIESCKA?
I wonder why this book has not been published in France... several hypothesis (as usual):
- you didn't submit it to a publisher?
- this novel is particularly filled with an humour maybe difficult to translate in french?
- problem with the censure (the very particular sexual require of president Marshall)?
- Might CONDOR have been published in France because it is a mixt of World War II and Cold War, although IKON is only about the Cold War (My opinion is that french readers are fascinated by WWII far more than by Cold War)? An interesting hypothesis for my subject!

P.S. I like this quote by Kathy: "the history books are full of lies and discrepancies"... a good key to understand what you want to do in the novels with historical backgrounds!
