Yay, a new Forest Kingdom book! Oh my, I can hardly wait!

This is not the first time in which I have read that BMR is somewhat autobiographical though, I'd sure like some elaboration on that one of these days...

Talks are at a very early stage. Simon has spoken with his his agent and publisher. Both haven't said no, but that doesn't mean they'll say yes.

More info when I have it. . .

Good read.

I'm going to have to get tickets to the Crucible. The Tithe Barn is such an awesome building.

I really do hope to see a new Blue Moon book. It is my favourite setting (I'd really love to see an expanded area, but that is my preference for the epic coming out).

It's funny, Simon's dad taught me how to look after bicycles. I guess he did the same for Simon.

The interview is very, very interesting, I liked it very much. And although I would have preferred a Deathstalker novel, I'd be very happy with a Blue Moon novel too. The Blue Moon books are truly a wonderful Swords&Sorcery tales.

Sorry Darth, the publisher doesn't want any more Deathstalker ! Some publisher rubbish about sales fingers and the like. . .

I thought that the last three Deathstalker books were unneeded, anyway. The series ended just fine with Destiny.

Well there you go, Simon thought the same.

Then they badger him for more for months. Now he's got an idea they don't want them !

Publishers !!

I kinda figured he did. It had that feel about it. Lacked his usual vitality.

Still, nice to see he ended it in a manner they really can't ask for more of.

Publishers are the bane of the industry. (Much like the music industry and labels.)

It is curious to hear that you and Mr. Green himself disliked the later Deathstalker trilogy. I liked it better than the originals. It was very, very epic and the characters were strong, especially Douglas and Finn Durandal. Also, because Lewis got his power in a late stage of the series, you always felt that doom is impending on the characters.
Also, I don't know how the series could have ended in book 5 with the Terror looming.
I am sorry to hear that the publishers are such big influence, though. In my opinion they should let the authors do what they want and stop demanding from them to produce more of the same.
