Comments: Dear Graham,

I am going to post on Manitouman a new message with my historical reflexion about THE PARIAH (the chapter five of my essay).
I hope you have received my precedent message, posted last week.
My dream would be to present your novels from a historical point of view to the french public...

Thanks,

Christophe

Comments: Very sorry to hear that Philip Nutman has died at the age of only 50. He was a great character and one of those people who make horror writing so creative and such fun. After losing Jim Herbert, Rick Hautala and Gary Brandner, I think it's time the Grim Reaper left us horror writers alone for a while.

Comments: Thanks, CW. The only irritating thing about "real" characters is that when I want the story to go one way, they insist that it takes off in a totally different direction. That's probably why they're memorable...they've taken over and written the book the way THEY want it.

Comments: Matthew: thank you for pointing out Graham's "Rules of Writing". There's a great deal of potential for expanding ideas (hint hint). Will you accept a suggestion for a future edit?

Graham has a consummate voice. No doubt in my mind he'll be my lifelong go-to author. "Famine", a favourite of mine, had the protagonist in an obscure industry. It blended micro and macro problems for him to resolve. When I think about all his books they have the same thread and bring larger than life characters and make them memorable. Even cameos like the Berry family in a vivid and gruesome scene from "Dark Angel". Graham creates powerful connections between reader and character. I may sound far-fetched when I say it's psychic but I think it's at a higher level than emotive.

My view is the hallmark of any book is how long it lingers in the mind after reading. It's rare if the story and not the characters stay with me. How on this green earth does he do it? Most writers pale in comparison to Graham's art on many levels. Years after reading a novel his characters stay with me. The power in his characters astounds me. I think it should be near the top of his rules (#3 sounds good)!!!

Anyways, hope I'm not out of line and I apologise if I am. I hold only sincere interest and admiration for his work.

Comments: Wow: and it's a great set too. I think I don't have three in the set of your work. Hopefully he can keep us (me :-)) posted on what's next. I just received broken Angels brand-new from the UK; talk about mega excited!! I'm still trying to get the audio CD version of white bones, and I'm open to any options; I really want the audio CD versions when they all finally come out because so far the first two books look great, and whomever did the design was obviously inspired. Anyway, I may get the download of white bones audio after I finish reading the hardback (I'm about three quarters through white bones) and I have the hardback of broken Angels which I wish I could read simultaneously, but since I get so much enjoyment from your work, I don't want to miss anything.
Thanks again Graham!!

Comments: I know then Leonardo drawing you are refeerring to, Christophe, but Tebulot's helmet and all of the other armor in NIGHT WARRIORS is a figment of my imagination and not inspired by any real historical armor. I have not rerceived a message from you at manitouman1@yahoo.com. Perhaps you could try again. I will check my spam folder as well as other mail.

Comments: Dear Graham,

It seems that Hollande and Sarkozy (with his goblin's head) are the last incarnations of Nyarlathotep...What a subject for your next horror novel !

Can you confirm to me that the helmet of Tebulot (in THE NIGHT WARRIORS) was inspired to you by a drawing of Leonard de Vinci in the British Museum ("buste de guerrier en armure fantastique")? And the Kasyx armour by the "manierist armours" of the XVI° century?

Many thanks,

Christophe

P.S. I hope you have received my post on manitouman...
