Comments: Graham, and thank you for what you have given. I know that DROUGHT is not due out in the US until September, but I hope that the historical sagas come out. I have a copy of MAN OF DESTINY but I had not read it, so I shall :-). I figure that if I have enjoyed everything else then I am likely to enjoy the historical sagas. I am still on the lookout for CD copies of Katie Maguire, but unless someone buys from the UK and sells in the US secondhand or I try a UK vendor, then I'm not likely to see those soon. Anyway, I still have a bunch of back catalog items I can purchase through Amazon, so I can get my fill. Looking forward to new material as it comes out, and as always I appreciate everything. I think that the two oldest of my collectibles are my favorite bass guitar, and your books. Both of which I enjoy, I only need to get a new case for my wing bass, since the guitar is slightly customized, made in 1978 and has excellent sustain. Well, I digress, thanks for everything: regards
Campbell

Comments: Thanks for FOREST GHOST, I totally loved the Book !!
I listened to some interviews with Irish Writers and was impressed by the emphasis on the "Art of the Word" which is something that seems to come from the spoken word as well. Anyway, the one constant I appreciate in your work is that Art of the Word. I guess that's why I like to ask about the readers of your work, since the reader can be key in audio Books ( Doug Bradley has a line of audio Books I wish I could get, but I want to get all of yours first).
Anyway, thanks again for FOREST GHOST, great story, great characters and many chilling moments plus a great mythology.
Regards, Campbell.

Comments: Hi Graham,

I just read that World Horror is returning to Atlanta in May of 2015. Sounds like you need to return to the colonies for this one.

Comments: A new review of FOREST GHOST from the American book review magazine Kirkus:

Twin forests on two continents seem to be haunting visitors and making them want to kill themselves.

Jack Wallace, widowed owner of a Polish restaurant in Chicago, receives some terrible news about his son Sparky’s closest friend, Malcolm. On a Boy Scout trip he took to faraway Owasippe Scout Reservation, all the Scouts and Scout leaders evidently killed themselves. Jack is shocked by this news and even more shocked that it’s not news to Sparky, who seems to have known it would happen. Although Sparky has always been a bit quirky, Jack puts much of that down to his Asperger’s diagnosis. Now, however, Sparky is consulting star charts and trying to predict the future. The two leave Chicago with Malcolm’s mother to claim the body and try to find some answers, but the forest reservation spooks them, and they’re troubled by the persistent sense that there’s something more in the woods. A séance Jack’s neighbor insists he attend connects him to a spectral voice (his dead wife?) that eventually connects him—as usual in Masterton, the logical steps are never very clear—to Dr. Krystyna Zawadka, who’s been investigating a disturbingly similar phenomenon in Poland. As Jack and Sparky travel abroad to find out if the danger is animal, human or something more, Sparky makes hauntingly accurate predictions along the way. One thing remains clear: Whoever sets foot in these forests is in grave danger, even from their own hands, until the truth can be found.

Typically creepy and graphic fare from Masterton, with an environmental spin that may herald a new direction (Drought, 2014).

Comments: The latest bid for the signed unbound DROUGHT proofs stands at $100; GB£60; €70; PLN 300.

I will be visiting Strzelin in Lower Silesia on August 23/24 for the LiteraTura II festival which is not only to celebrate literature in Poland and the town of Strzelin itself but also to raise money for the children's home in Gorzec. I will also have a chance to meet readers and sign books.

Comments: It's proof auction time again...this time for the unbound signed proofs of DROUGHT, which is not scheduled to be published until May. This is the only signed proof there will ever be and the proceeds go to children;s charities.

DROUGHT is 280+ pages crammed with violence, political betrayal, Native American legends and sex...but absolutely no water.

Bids start at GB£50; €60; US$85; PLN 250. Please send your bids to manitouman1@yahoo.com. I will be giving you daily updates on the bids. Bids close March 17, St Patrick's Day, at the stroke of midnight.

Comments: I'm reading "Forest Ghost". I'm like 3/4 of the way through, and it's a good read that is keeping me guessing. But I'm confused by one part, at page 61 in the print edition, when Jack's mother says about how the strange woman knew how Jack's great-grandfather died: "How did she know that? Agnieszka's family never knew."

He was Jack's great-grandfather, not Agnieszka's, so why is it relevant that Agnieszka's family never knew how he died?
