Comments: Dear Mr Masterton,

A little precision about what you said in your last message (that my references are not ground in reality...).
It is a question of methodology: when I am sure of my references I don't question you about them, and that concerns 90% of them (for instance, I know the reason why you named "Arabella" the boat which brought Mictantecutli, and I am sure that the "Grand Educateur" of BLIND PANIC is a reference to R.H. Pratt etc...)
It is only for the other 10% that I need to question you, to validate or invalidate my conclusions, because your imagination is sometimes... astonishing !
Maybe this can give the impression I am lost in my researches, but it is not the case!

Christophe

P.S. thanks for having qualified my essay as a possible "book"... it sounds like a compliment.

Comments: Dear Graham,

Concerning my last question, I think you might have given the answer by anticipation ...EACH READER HAS HIS OWN CULTURE AND HIS OWN EYES, SO EACH READER WILL HAVE HIS OWN APPRECIATION... and his own freedom to find or not references to Faust, in your novels.
For instance, my opinion is that the description of the unknown opera of R. Wagner in SALAMANDER is close to the Faust universe: the grey monk giving to Junius the ritual, the mountains under the storm lightnings, the diabolic choir... are for me referrings to the FIRST WALPURGIS NIGHT (a poem by Goethe starring the Brocken in the Harz massif) or MEFISTOFELE (opera by Boito)...but IT IS ONLY MY OPINION!

Comments: In your novel it is written, about Madeleine, "je suis morte et je suis montée au ciel", and that remains me what happens to Marguerite at the end of the FIRST FAUST of Goethe and in the last scene of the FAUST by Gounod.
Moreover, in your novel, Madeleine helps the heroe to win against the devils and, at the end of the SECOND FAUST, two characters pray for the sake of Faust's spirit: Marguerite and... Madeleine !
That's why I thought the name Madeleine could have been suggested to you by Goethe's opuses...

May I ask you the question about Faust in a different way, more general...can we say that some of your novels revisit the myth of Faust?

Thanks,

Christophe

Comments: Dear Christophe...as usual your classical references are fascinating but not grounded in reality. I have not read Faust although obviously I know the story. As for that love affair...well, I will just have to leave that to your imgaination. One day perhaps you will write your own book "The Worlds of Graham As Seen Through The Much More Cultured Eyes of Christophe"

Comments: Dear Graham,

About THE DEVILS OF D-DAY, I wonder if the trilogy of characters Patton/Madeleine/Adramelech was inspired by the Goethe's trilogy Faust/Marguerite/Méphisto.
In that case, could you precise me if there is a mention of a love story between Patton and Madeleine (before he sacrifies her to Adramelech!)... I am at this time in Aix En Provence and I have not your novel with me...)

Thanks,

Christophe

Comments: Saddened to hear that Tom Piccirilli the great horror novelist, poet and anthologist died to day, July 11, aged only 50, from brain cancer. Among much other terrific work he wrote the novelization of Hellboy, as well as The Cold Spot, and brought out a beautifully-illustrated anthology of poems by horror writers The Devils Wine which included several of my poems. My sympathy to his family. He was very special.

Comments: I have had discussions with several movie producers about NIGHT WARRIORS, including Universal. The biggest problem is the budget. Night Warriors movies are going to need a lot of CGI and animation which are very expensive and even though the books have sold very well they are not up there with Marvel in terms of public recognition, which makes movie financiers a little dubious. But...I am still working on it!
