Well, Halloween has faded into the night, taking all its ghosts with it! And hopefully now, people can put what is left of those ridiculous pumpkins in the dustbin! ‘Till next year at least.
C has kindly told me that he’ll try and post up the Metro article on my main website, then I can post a link up here. But he really has been very busy at the moment with other matters.
Do you know I still haven’t received my complimentary copies of Metro. So thank you Columbine for saying you’ve posted me one. I’ll probably get yours before I get theirs!
I finished the long Introduction to the last chapter of the new book yesterday (Can you believe it, 34 A5 pages – and that’s just the Introduction!). Yes, I know Introductions usually go at the beginning so let me explain . . . This is the Introduction to the last chapter which is an update of things up to present – if that makes sense. If it doesn’t, it’ll just have to! As us authors don’t like giving too much away.
So anyway, now I’ve hopefully dealt with the Robin Hood ‘ghost stuff’, I think we can safely put that away for the time being.
There have been so many blatant contradictions in this whole silly story about the haunted grave (which I have always said is situated in an unique area and could be haunted – only NOT by a ‘demonic wailing old hag‘ or a ‘vampire’) that the contradictions themselves would make a good story. The old saying comes to mind . . . “Liars, need good memories”! (And there’s more than enough of these blatant contradictory statements on record).
I guess if people really choose to believe fiction and fictional stories, its up to them. Not up to them though surely to condemn other people for not accepting such nonsense! But that is really their problem though – not mine. I think anybody who lends themselves to the idea that ‘real-life’ vampires (or ‘giant vampire spiders’) literally exist, really has got a real problem! Especially when such people try to reiterate such stories as ‘fact’!
That’s it really. Although perhaps just one final point.
I have just received permission to give publication details of the other book I mentioned recently. But you’ll have to bear with me as I’ve mislaid the piece of paper I wrote them on. No problem because I can always go back to the email. So hopefully tomorrow,
Although for the moment,
